Welcome to Operational Energy Summit
Enabling Global Power Projection: Strategies to Provide Robust, Flexible Energy Solutions for the Future Force
DOD relies on operational energy to train, move, and conduct missions around the globe. From vehicles, to communications and weapon systems,the mission can only go so far as the energy source that powers it. In the complex, global environment it is imperative that we do not let the power projection of our armed forces be limited by the logistics trains that supply them. Solutions like energy harvesting, storage, and waste management can help to build the speed, endurance, and range that our joint forces are able to conduct operations around the world.
Tactical Power 2017 provides a forum for policy makers and technology leaders to come together to solve some of DODs operational energy challenges. We will examine and explore critical focus areas such as energy harvesting and storage, waste management, next generation power sources, reviewing the 2016 Operational Energy Strategy and overviews of each branches challenges and their plan going forward. This exchange will encourage an innovative and productive discussion on how industry can support ongoing efforts, and provide the solutions that will enable our Military to win the future fight.
