DoD and DOE – Leading the Way in Developing Smart Energy Grids and Microgrids
The world microgrid market topped $4 billion in 2010, and according to a recent Congressional study the military microgrid market alone is projected to increase by 375% over the next decade. According to the Secretary of Defense, over 40 DoD military bases either have currently operating microgrids, planned microgrids, or have conducted studies or demonstrations of microgrid technologies. Emerging Government & Military spending on “Smartgrid” technologies will include advanced metering, transmission efficiencies, smart switches, enhanced demand response capabilities, distribution automation, energy management systems, plus many other technologies all may pave the way for the creation of “intelligent,” self-managing energy grids.
This incredible program unites the key planners and technical experts who are leading the way in developing smart and microgrid systems. Issues that will be addressed will include:
- What role do smart grids and microgrids play in OSD and Service energy strategies and acquisition plans?
- What is the status of government smart grid and microgrid initiatives and pilot projects?
- How do fixed-site vs. mobile requirements differ?
- What are the emerging lessons learned in fixed and tactical deployments?
- How do OSD and Service plans and developments intersect with DOE plans and US national smart grid strategy? What are the cybersecurity challenges?
- What role will renewable energies play?
- What is the status and forecast for critical smart grid technologies?
These critical issues will be presented and discussed during two full days of sessions that will also include networking and exhibiting opportunities & audience question and answer sessions.
