DoD and DOE – Leading the Way in Developing Smart Energy Grids and Alternative Energy
The DoD is by far the largest energy user within the Federal Government, and it faces unique strategic issues in energy security, most notably its dependence upon fossil fuels and the risks associated with integrating with the National Grid. To overcome these risks, DoD has embarked upon an aggressive plan to incorporate new technologies and capabilities in smart and microgrids and in alternative/renewable technologies.
This comprehensive two day symposium will feature the leading Government and industry experts who will carefully examine & discuss with the participants emerging Government & Military needs and opportunities in “Smart/Microgrid and Alternative” energy technologies including:
- What role do smart grids, microgrids and alternative energies play in OSD and Service energy strategies and acquisition plans?
- What is the status of government smart /microgrid initiatives? Alternative energy initiatives?
- How do fixed-site vs. mobile energy requirements differ?
- How do OSD and Service plans and developments intersect with DOE plans and US national smart grid strategy? What are the cybersecurity challenges?
- What are the emerging lessons learned from the 40+ DoD/Service microgrid installations?
- How can industry contribute?
- The Latest Government/DoD Strategies, Plans and Roadmaps:
- Military Energy Security and Informed Energy Operations
- Smart and Microgrid Technologies and Installations
- Alternative Energy Technology Development & Integration
- DOE/DoD Grid Integration
- Fixed vs. Tactical/Mobile Power – Lessons Learned and Emerging Technologies
- Lessons Learned from Current Microgrid Installations
- Emerging Protection Control Technologies and Cybersecurity Needs and Capabilities
- Toward the “Intelligent” Military Grid – How do We Get There?
