DoD Communities Of Interest: Energy and Power Technologies
Subject: VERTEX Energy Use Cases Industry Day
Due Date: FEBRUARY 8-10, 2022 (Austin TX)
Government Organization: Army Futures Command
As part of the FY22 budget, the Department of Defense (DoD) requested $4.3B to invest in next-gen energy technologies. The Army is interested in the same tech that’s gaining traction in the commercial market and among private investors. And they're looking for new and novel energy solutions to address 12 critical use cases in four areas.
VERTEX | Energy is the concentrated source of energy market intelligence for the US Army. This 3-day symposium affords founders, investors, and market experts a rare opportunity to baseline product differentiation while informing the US Army’s approach to next-gen energy and power. Hosted by Army Futures Command (AFC), VERTEX | Energy places commercial experts and innovators at the center of the conversation to explore and examine the current state of energy and power technology.
Anyone can participate in VERTEX | Energy virtually by viewing the livestream sessions on the AFC YouTube channel.
To support its focus on new and novel technology, however, AFC is limiting in-person attendance to 150 people and will be vetting both panel presenters and attendees to ensure alignment with the use cases that AFC seeks to address through this event.
Both panel presenters and attendees will be vetted and selected to ensure alignment with the use cases that AFC seeks to address through this event. Once you register and indicate interest in attending live in Austin, AFC will review your information and determine if you are a good fit as an audience member or panelist. They'll let you know within approximately three weeks whether you are selected to participate in person and in what capacity.
The Army VERTEX | Energy event will focus on four energy and electrification technology areas:
- Platform Electrification & Modernization, including: hybrid/all-electric propulsion, EV charging (fast, austere, extreme temps), platform exportable power (P2P and generator replacement), onboard power management (planning and real time), range extenders, and platform-to-Soldier power transfer.
- Soldier & Small Unit Power, including: power electronics, battery charging, high-density storage, demand reduction, diffuse energy concentration, and energy awareness (planning and real time).
- OE Infrastructure & Integration, including: standardization, intelligent power management (planning and real time), grid storage, AI/ML enhancement, power distribution in austere environments, and high temperature power inversion.
- Operational Touchpoints with Installations, including: power storage and density, vehicle-to-grid integration, small modular nuclear reactors, and fleet management.
