Announcing Defense Strategies Institutes 6th Annual DoD Energy & Power Summit –

Washington DC, DC, May 16, 2024 –(– The Department of Defense is the single largest energy consumer in the nation, and its operational and energy consumption represents 76% of total federal energy consumption. Recognizing the DoD’s need for vast, steady amounts of energy and water to sustain its operations, this year’s DoD Energy and Power Summit will address the need to enhance energy security, resilience, and efficiency across installations and expeditionary environments to maintain operational readiness.

To this End, Defense Strategies Institute is proud to announce the 6th Annual DoD Energy & Power Summit on July 31 – August 1. The 2024 Summit will bring together senior leaders from across U.S. military services, DoD, federal government, industry, and academia to discuss the critical importance of promoting energy assurance across military installations and operational energy initiatives. The 2024 Summit will be held at National Housing Center in Washington, D.C., where discussions will explore the modernization and advancement of energy and power technologies and solutions that promote energy security, resiliency, and sustainability and that meet the DoD’s installation and operational energy demands.
