Panel (In Formation):
Dennis McGinn, Assistant Secretary, Energy, Installations and Environment, US Navy
Dan Cohee, Vice President, PDE Total Energy Solutions

The Department of Defense has developed strong relationships and collaborated with Western states over many years and shares many similar goals, including promoting energy security, energy efficiency, alternative transportation technologies, and environmental stewardship. An example of this collaboration is the Western Regional Partnership (WRP), an organization of federal, state, tribal and military partners in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah. Through the WRP, agencies are working collaboratively to protect natural resources and promote sustainability, homeland security, and military readiness in the West. This panel includes not only the Assistant Secretary of the Navy over Installations and Environmental, but also a leading private sector designer and implementer of advanced energy storage and DG, and the CPUC’s energy division director. They will explore how the Department of Defense is working on groundbreaking projects with state agencies and private companies to ensure their missions and bases operate sustainably.
