Industry forum to kick off installation energy projects

  • Published
The Air Force will host an Energy Enhanced Use Lease Industry Forum Sep. 26-27 to give private industry and community stakeholders an opportunity to learn how the service intends to use energy projects, both renewable and conventional, to support its missions.

During the two-day forum, which will be held at the Hilton Ontario Airport Hotel in Ontario, Calif., Air Force representatives will discuss the service's energy strategy and highlight potential projects capable of generating energy at Air Force bases throughout the country. The Air Force will also unveil details of potential large-scale energy projects at bases in California, Arizona and New Mexico.

The event also gives the opportunity for attendees, including those from state and local governments, public utilities, real estate developers, equipment manufacturers, private equity firms, lenders and other firms, to provide their input on potential projects and help shape the future of the Air Force's energy program.

Energy projects are the latest to be explored through the Air Force's Enhanced Use Lease (EUL) program, which builds partnerships between the military and private industry by leasing underutilized military assets to private entities for development.

This effort is part of the larger Air Force-wide energy strategy that aims to reduce demand and increase supply of energy resources as well as drive change in Air Force culture when it comes to consuming and conserving energy.

The Energy EUL Industry Forum is open to the general public. For more information about this event and to register, please visit (conference code REN96690). Any additional questions should be directed to the Air Force Real Property Agency's Energy EUL team at 703-696-5580.
