Beyond Petroleum: An IIF Sneak Peak

October 12, 2022

Governments, industry and others are looking for energy options beyond petroleum, including how such changes will impact infrastructure and operations. That’s the subject of “Fleets, Facilities and Fuels,” a session at ADC Installation Innovation, the event taking place Oct. 31 through Nov. 2 in Phoenix.

The session will look at planning and implementation factors for fielding non-tactical, zero-emission vehicles on military installations.

“Integrated strategic planning will play a vital role in creating a more resilient infrastructure network in support of military operations,” according to the official session description. “Promoting energy independence and resilience across fleets, facilities and fuels without impeding an agency’s primary mission is paramount.”

Speakers will include Ted Adair, director, defense and national security at Guidehouse; Jim Gough, commercial vehicle fleet director installations and logistics (facilities) at Marine Corps headquarters; and Sandy Kline, director of installation resilience for the assistant Navy secretary for energy, installations and environment.

Check out the full Installation Innovation agenda, which continues to be updated with new sessions and speakers.
