Technical Track 5: Energy
Track Chair: Col. Richard Fryer, CEM, PMP, LEED AP, CFM, USAF (Ret),
Session 1: Wednesday, May 25, 2011; 2:30-4:00 p.m.
Senior SES level speaker from DOE to kick off the track talking to progress by Federal Agencies towards meeting National goals, policy changes and adjustments contemplated, potential for a national RES and any far future vision for the Nation and Federal Agencies. Followed by Senior SES/Flag speaker from OSD to address OSD added goals and policies, strategic shifts in both (if any), concerns and plans to address them, and an overview of the resource picture, especially ECIP, but also SRM and MILCON. If time permits, address energy studies “orchestration” [editorial: seems to be many studies under way and beginning that overlap] and/or the validity of LEED certification: is this the best metric.
Moderator: Mr. Brian Lally, Energy Consultant, Lally Enterprises
