Washington, DC, March 18, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Defense Strategies Institute is pleased to announce the Expeditionary Power & Energy Summit, taking place on May 15-16, 2019 at the Mary M. Gates Learning Center in Alexandria, VA. The 2019 Expeditionary Power & Energy Summit will bring together senior leaders in the Tactical Power & Energy Community from military, government, industry and academia for two days of discussions, presentations and networking.
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. DSI’s 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.
This year’s confirmed speakers include:
- Troy Warshel, Director of Operations, Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Energy
- Jack Surash, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (Energy and Sustainability)
- Roberto Guerrero, Deputy Assistant Secretary to the Air Force for Operational Energy, Office of the Assistant Secretary of Installations, Environment, and Energy
- James Caley, Director of Operations Energy, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Energy
- Col Jesse Kemp, USMC, Director, Marine Corps Expeditionary Energy Officer (E20)
- Karen Moore, Operational Energy Program Manager, USARCENT
- Dr. George Crabtree, Director, Joint Center for Energy Storage Research, Argonne National Laboratory
The goals of this year’s summit are to address operational energy initiatives for the Navy, Marine Corps, Army and Air Force, discuss methods for equipping the warfighter with technologies for maximizing energy efficiency and operational flexibility, and explore the cutting-edge research on the future of energy and power.
Seating is limited to allow for actionable discussion in a “Town Hall” format. Active military and government personnel attend free of charge. Those interested in participating in the 2019 Expeditionary Power & Energy Summit may visit the website at power.dsigroup.org/.
