The Department of Defense's Energy and Environment Innovation Symposium is the nation’s largest conference focusing on the DoD's priority environmental and energy issues. The Symposium brings together researchers, technology developers, defense end-users, and regulatory communities to showcase cutting edge environmental and energy technologies and ideas. This event is hosted by the environmental research and energy innovation programs under the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Environment & Energy Resilience (DASD E&ER). The Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) fund research and demonstration projects, harnessing the latest science and technology to improve DoD’s environmental performance, reduce costs, and enhance and sustain mission capabilities. The Operational Energy Capability Improvement Fund (OECIF) and Operational Energy Prototyping Fund (OEPF) programs develop and prototype technologies that provide tactical overmatch for our warfighters and allies.

The 2023 Symposium will offer a variety of technical sessions and short courses, over 500 technical poster presentations, and networking opportunities at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia from November 28 to December 1, 2023. The Symposium event website will be available soon for attendees to register and learn more about technical sessions, short courses, and poster abstract submission.
