In the evolving threat landscape, the United States military has recognized a need to reduce its dependence on established logistical networks for power generation and refueling. The current system leaves warfighters vulnerable to attack and is financially, as well as environmentally, unsustainable. In an effort to effectively compete against great power competitors, the United States military is shifting towards a more resilient energy strategy that will increase operational flexibility and success. Our Expeditionary Power and Energy Summit
will focus on the current and future policies, programs, and R&D aimed at creating a more energy-resilient force.
Topics to be Covered at the 2019 Summit:
- Operational Energy and Warfighter Resilience: Enhancing Capability While Mitigating Cost
- Equipping the Warfighter with Resilient Capabilities to Reduce Sustainment Demand
- Lightening the Load: Effectiveness and Energy Efficiency in Integrated Soldier Systems
- Developing Power Generation and Energy Storage to Improve Naval Resiliency
- Improving Energy Storage Capabilities to Increase Operational Flexibility
- Enhancing Cyber Security and Energy Resiliency
Why You Should Attend this Summit
Our 2019 Expeditionary Power and Energy Summit
will focus on the technologies and policies necessary to support the use of power and energy in an operational environment.
Refining the military's use of energy at contingency bases, adapting our requirements and force development process, and establishing an operational energy policy and oversight across the Services, Combatant Commands, and the overall Department has been a critical priority for the DoD since the inaugural Operational Energy Strategy
in 2011. The 2019 Summit will address, among other things, operational energy initiatives for the Navy, Marine Corps, Army, and Air Force, how to equip the warfighter to maximize energy efficiency and increase operational flexibility, the link between cybersecurity and energy resiliency, and the cutting-edge research on the future of energy and power.
Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summits' content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in military energy as well as key-policy makers across military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
