About E2C 2015

The annual Expeditionary Energy Concepts (E2C) technology demonstration – formerly known as ExFOB – took place 23-25 June 2015 at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, NC.  The demonstration focused on technologies that enable small unit distributed operations.

Specifically, technologies evaluated during E2C 2015 included:

  1. Hybrid/Electric All-Terrain Vehicles, which offer significant fuel savings and have the potential to extend the operational reach of Marines on the move;
  2. Advanced Batteries and Energy Storage Technology, which can lighten the carried load, help increase infantry mobility, and extend operational reach; and
  3. Fuel Cells (up to 10 kilowatts), which will play a critical role in reducing future fuel requirements.

Innovative approaches to reducing fuel and battery resupply requirements have the potential to enhance the maneuverability and sustainability of Company Landing Teams and other small unit distributed operations—giving Marines more mobility and the ability to stay out longer without being resupplied constantly.
