Deputy Secretary of Defense William Lynn and Assistant Secretary of Defense for Operational Energy Plans and Programs Sharon Burke will brief the media at 2 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, June 14, in the Pentagon Briefing Room (2E973) to discuss the DoD Operational Energy Strategy.
This is the first time the DoD is publishing an Operational Energy Strategy. The strategy will guide the DoD to a more strategic use of energy resources in current and future plans. It will lower risks to our warfighters, save money for American taxpayers, and allow the department to shift more resources to other warfighting priorities.
All journalists must be seated by 1:50 p.m. Journalists without a Pentagon building pass will be picked up at the River Entrance only. Plan to arrive no later than 45 minutes prior to the event; have proof of affiliation and two forms of photo identification. Please call 703-697-5131 for escort into the building.
