Global conflicts, geo-political shifts, economic pressures, and hostile actions by adversaries, comprising both cyber and physical attacks, are sounding the alarm to action. Obsolete legacy IT systems and processes further make the case for a bold and decisive response. Lack of resilience makes the nation’s energy infrastructure vulnerable to cyber threats, natural disasters, market fluctuations, and other disruptors.

Meanwhile, in many parts of the world, nations are adopting policies to prioritize expansion of renewable generation, energy diversification, and energy storage. For some countries, these are their most pressing goals. The challenge is to balance energy-sector aspirations against the reality of geopolitical conflicts, fluctuating commodity prices, supply chain disruptions, and increases in extreme weather. 

To meet future demand, traditional energy producers are evaluating newer, cleaner, and more efficient energy sources. At the same time, the U.S. government has blazed a path to energy independence, using grants to develop new technology and break the country’s reliance on energy imports. These actions and ongoing modernization initiatives by the federal government align with the theme of AFCEA Bethesda’s 2023 Energy, Infrastructure, and Environment (EIE) Summit, Reimagine Energy: Advancing the Mission Towards a Resilient Energy Infrastructure.

The EIE Summit will convene leaders from federal energy, infrastructure, and environment agencies to discuss the modernization efforts that must be undertaken to address today’s energy challenges with a focus on cyber, identity and credentials, data and digital transformation, technology modernization, the workforce, operational excellence, robotic process automation (RPA), artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), and the emergence of generative AI such as ChatGPT.

Join us on November 15 as federal leaders discuss how their agencies are adopting best practices, techniques, and innovative technology to strengthen the nation’s energy infrastructure and support mission outcomes.

At Martha’s Table, they believe that every Washingtonian deserves the opportunity to thrive. For 41 years, they’ve been committed to advancing a more equitable Washington, D.C.

They stand firmly alongside Washingtonians day-in and day-out on both sides of the Anacostia River by operating nationally accredited education programs, pairing healthy food access with physical and mental health services, and promoting family success by investing in family leaders.

At Martha’s Table, they believe in doing things differently in support of our neighbors. As a community-led organization, they rely on the guidance of their neighbors to help us deliver on our mission to support strong children, strong families, and strong communities in the District of Columbia.

To help support Martha's Table, bring lightly worn shoes or new socks to the 2023 EIE Summit for collection to be donated after the event.
