Operational Energy Summit

Washington, DC, United States

Delivering cutting edge power solutions

As the DoD calls for $3.6 billion budget for 2020 and with a comprehensive plan outlined by the OES, our Operational Energy 2020 summit takes front and center in its 13th iteration, bringing together the community from across the branches of service to discuss the fuel of all operations and source to our future technologies and equipment.

The program will provide a platform for shared thought leadership, knowledge exchange and opportunities for cooperation to advance energy technologies, expand reusable, accessible and efficient solutions to address the latest challenges, as well as provide paths to enhance Soldier lethality and support logistic missions.

Operational Energy Summit 2020 will provide the community with over-arching reviews from DoD, DLA, and other leading agencies, as well as tactical and operational points of view from across the Services. With that in mind, our sessions will cover top priorities to align with the three pillars of the DoD OES. The summit will discuss current programs and future priorities in support of logistic and operational energy solutions; Emerging Technologies, Renewable Solutions, Disruptive Innovation and Allocating, resourcing and developing plans to ensure mission effectiveness
