DSI to Lead Discussions on Military Mobile Power and Operational Energy with Senior Leaders in Military, Government, and Industry in Washington, D.C.
Washington, DC, October 31, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The DoD is the biggest institutional energy consumer in the world, with over 75% deriving from “operational energy” (OE). With increased focus within the OSD to strengthen the energy security of U.S. military operations and improve military capabilities, cut costs, and lower operational and strategic risk through better energy accounting, planning, management, and innovation, there are enhanced efforts and initiatives underway across all the Services to help transform OE.
DSI’s upcoming Summit recognizes that in a field such as mobile power, where there are multiple agents acting in tandem, it is extremely important that all involved are working towards a cohesive and holistic approach. “While the field has seen an immense amount of technological advancements, especially in alternative and renewable energy sources, we believe that truly great advancements are on the horizon and this is why our Senior Partners decided to lend our expertise towards creating a forum that can bring together stakeholders across the continuum of the community,” Ms. Monica Mckenzie, Senior Partner from DSI stated.
A look at the early agenda, reveals a diversity of senior level speakers across the Services speaking on topics such as:
- Advanced fuel cell and battery systems for ground, air & space applications
- Performance metrics and measurements development
- Portable energy harvesting
- Biofuels and advanced “drop in” fuels
- Optimization of microgrids
- Energy integration in data-to-decision: Intelligent power management
- R&D in waste-to-energy conversions for FOBs
- Tactical renewable energy programs
- Streamlined acquisition & commercial item procurement
The forum is open to the public, however seating is limited.
