August 15-16, 2017 –TRG attended and participated the 2017 Energy Exchange in Tampa, Florida.  The Energy Exchange is an educational and networking forum for those seeking to expand their knowledge of building operations, energy security and management in the federal sector. Working with our client the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) and the DoD Services, TRG coordinated and supported a Utilities Privatization (UP) Information Sharing Meeting.  This open meeting was for government, industry, and those interested in learning about UP on military installations and, specifically, how UP has evolved in today’s complex world with many challenges, including new technologies, cyber security, resilience, and microgrids. Understand the importance of how installations with privatized utility systems affect the long-range planning and alternatives to meet today’s challenges and mission assurance requirements.  David S.
