Energy & Environmental-Focused Sessions at Southeast Regional Federal Construction, Infrastructure & Environment Summit (April 6-7, 2022)

The Offices of Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis and the North Carolina Military Business Center are pleased to host the in-person Southeast Region Federal Construction, Infrastructure and Environmental Summit on April 6-7, 2022 in Wilmington, North Carolina.

PURPOSE.  “The Summit” brings together over 750 representatives of the Corps of Engineers, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Fort Bragg, Marine Corps Installations East, Seymour Johnson AFB, other Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps installations, US Coast Guard, Department of Veterans Affairs, General Services Administration, other federal agencies, general and specialty contractors, designers and construction suppliers from throughout the Southeast of the United States.


Electrification and its Infrastructure on Military Bases. Electric vehicles (EVs) are an important component of meeting climate change targets. President Biden has pledged to electrify the entire federal government fleet and build 500,000 electric vehicle charging stations by 2030. In parallel with these goals, the Department of Defense is looking to demonstrate and scale green technologies. For example, DoD is considering mandating all non-combat vehicles be electric by 2030. But widespread electrification may not be feasible just yet. How can we deploy EVs and the associated infrastructure while also protecting our country from the threats of climate change? Join us for a session about how DoD may make the transition to clean transportation.

Mitigating Climate Impact on Infrastructure at Military Bases. The Department of Defense recently released a plan to confront climate change risks to missions, installations, equipment, and service member welfare. Flooding, drought and extreme weather events disrupt U.S. military capabilities and facilities, including military training ranges and bases. How should military bases prepare for climate impacts and harsher environmental conditions; what changes should be made to bases’ master plans (i.e., the guide for the next decade plus of construction and major repairs)? This session will talk about how some bases are making plans during expected climate impacts.

Update on Offshore Wind Energy. NCMBC’s virtual October 2021 event included an offshore wind energy discussion to learn about the Avangrid Renewables Kitty Hawk site, plans for development of additional offshore wind sites, and how the Commonwealth of Virginia has worked collaboratively with the military on the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind site. Given the fluid nature of the topic, this session will be an update on what has happened since October. Hear from experts on the most to date information on this evolving topic.
