Enabling Defense Readiness with Resilient & Robust Energy Solutions

Enabling Defense Readiness with Resilient & Robust Energy Solutions

National Harbor, MD, 21st June 2024– The 2024 DoD Energy & Power Summit will explore the critical importance of promoting energy assurance across military installations and operational energy initiatives. On July 31-August 1, senior-level speakers will convene in Washington, DC to address recent advancements being made to integrate sustainable energy solutions to optimize efficiencies, mitigate costs, and eliminate risks associated with traditional energy sources.

Attendees will have the unique opportunity to learn from, engage with, and ask questions of senior-level leaders across the energy and power community on the technologies, strategies, and policies that will support the energy and power needs of the Department of Defense. Further, this event will examine how to strengthen installations, critical infrastructures, energy grids, and energy solutions against manmade and natural threats to enhance mission assurance and reduce risks to readiness.
