Lieutenant Governor Brian Schatz will introduce this WiRE panel on the Department of Defense and energy.
Join WiRE for the kickoff event of 2012 as Julie Hong of Booz Allen Hamilton facilitates a panel including Joelle Simonpietri (PACOM), Nicole Griffin (MARFORPAC), and Brad Spangler (NAVFAC). The nation’s largest energy user is not standing idly by watching its >$15 billion fuel bill climb. All of the services are reducing energy use and converting to renewable resources. PACOM, the Marines, and the Navy will explain how they are using government’s buying power to stimulate clean energy development, why they need to work together across services, and how their strategies ultimately make the U.S. more secure. Friday 1/27/2012, 8:00 am – 9:30 am, The Plaza Club.
