The upcoming Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit (APCES) is a forum that brings together industry and government energy leaders to exchange ideas, showcase exciting technology companies, and build lasting partnerships to solve critical energy problems. In all aspects of the Summit, active collaboration can be found between federal, state, and military agencies, defense and infrastructure contractors, energy providers, project developers, and energy solution providers.
The Department of Defense recognizes the important role energy plays in the U.S.’ national security. Aggressive energy reduction and alternative energy supply initiatives are already in place. This year’s Defense Energy Technology Challenge winners represented a wide range of organizations and solution types, including: energy efficiency, biofuels, HVAC, solar, transportation, smart grid, microgrid, and energy storage.
