Context. Development of the Defence Operational Energy Strategy is underway, and the new Operational Energy Authority (OEA) will stand up from 1 April 23

Intent. The conference will explore sectoral energy transition pathways to identify the implications and opportunities for the Operational Energy Authority to develop a capability that will secure future energy provision to the deployed force.

Outcomes.  The insights gained will increase understanding of energy options and help inform Defence’s operational energy transition.
