Welcome to the 13th Operational Energy Summit!

Delivering accessible, renewable and powerful energy solutions to enhance future operations and soldier lethality

As the DoD calls for a dedicated $3.6 billion budget for 2020 and with a comprehensive plan outlined by the OES, IDGA’s Operational Energy Summit 2020, now in its 13th successful year, is once again the annual community gathering from across the branches of service that will provide the platform to discuss cutting edge technologies and necessary modernization.

The 2019 Summit, a “fantastic event with a wide variety of government energy-related personnel in attendance,” [Wade Heck, Director of Gov't Relations, BWXT] delivered key briefings from Deputy Assistant Secretaries of Air Force and Army for Operational Energy as well as Programs Managers and Senior Analysists from Navy & DLA, addressing enhancement of storage solutions, tactical power, hydrogen fuel and many other key topics at the forefront of the Defense community’s agenda.

With our commitment at IDGA for the continuous development and advancement of our programs, the 2020 summit will provide exclusive and updated educational content, as well as thought leadership, knowledge exchange and opportunities for cooperation to promote energy technologies, expand reusable, accessible and efficient solutions to address the latest challenges and provide paths to enhance Soldier lethality and support logistic missions.

The Operational Energy Summit 2020 will provide the community with over-arching reviews from DoD, DLA and all branches of the military, as well as tactical and operational points of view from across the Services. With that in mind, our sessions will cover top priorities to align with the three pillars of the DoD OES. The Summit will discuss current programs and future priorities in support of logistical and operational energy solutions; emerging technologies, renewable solutions, disruptive innovation and allocating as well as resourcing and developing plans to ensure mission effectiveness.

The Focus Day will open the program with commentary from the top leaders of the sustainment, installations and operational energy community, providing strategic reviews and policy updates, thus setting the tone for the two days to follow with their extensive learning opportunities, over 10 hours of networking time with the key stakeholders and unique opportunities for you to deepen your footprint in the domain.

Join us this January 29th – 31st in Washington D.C. and help shape the face of operational energy.
