SMART ENERGY will be a highlight of the LCWS
Nowadays, there is an increased need for optimization of energy production and consumption. Energy is an operational capability, fundamental to the sustainment of every military mission and operation. From a strategic point of view, energy is important because it is essential for the stability and growth of any modern economy. LCWS presents a unique opportunity to demonstrate prospective future solutions and to raise awareness of energy efficiency issues.
Half-day session of presentations, posters and panel discussions led by Dr. Susanne Michaelis (NATO ESCD) and Multinational Logistics Coordination Centre (MLCC) experts will be dedicated to this key topic.
