International Perspectives on Energy Security for Military Operations

Chair: Benita Shults, US Pacific Command (PACOM)

The energy environment in the Asia-Pacific Region and around the globe contains complexities and interdependencies between economic development, military interoperability, and access to and movement of energy resources between nation states. Key vulnerabilities include disruption of regional sources of energy, transportation, and infrastructure. Military interoperability enables us to share those limited resources and reduce the security challenges between energy supply and energy demand. Energy Security requires a “whole of government” approach to mitigate the challenges and exploit the opportunities available. This forum is designed to support USPACOM's goal to support our alliances by working together by sharing lessons learned from implementing an Energy Security program.

DoD Cyber Security of Industrial Control Systems

Chair & Moderator: Ross Roley, US Pacific Command (PACOM)

As Industrial Control Systems (electric grids, oil and gas pipelines, water systems, etc.) become smarter and more data intensive, they also become more vulnerable to cyber attacks from a variety of foes with increasingly sophisticated capabilities. The result is a significant and growing threat to the nation and to the military. This session features experts from across the DoD who are addressing the issue along with a speaker from Hawaiian Electric Company who is responsible for cybersecurity of all the power supplied the military bases in Hawaii.

Natural Gas and LNG - Opportunities and Challenges

Chair: John Pierce, Perkins Coie, LLP

While the mainland United States has been adjusting to the advent of cheap and abundant domestically-sourced natural gas, Hawaii has yet to benefit directly. This is due in part to Hawaii’s remoteness, but also due to other factors such as the lack of the necessary infrastructure, the unsure outcome of the NextEra and Hawaiian Electric Industries, Inc. (HEI) merger, and resistance by certain sectors in Hawaii. However, natural gas may be the energy source that helps Hawaii bridge its present reliance on refined petroleum to its (now mandated) 100% renewable energy future. This panel will discuss the opportunities and challenges of natural gas and its densified version, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), in Hawaii and its potential impacts on the state’s power and transportation requirements.
