10 Reasons It Needs To Improve

Focus on must haves for the end result that delivers business value. 5 years ago, I cut way back after leaving IBM in 2013 to give myself more time to focus on consulting. For the last 15 years I have worked very closely with my friend and colleague Steve Siegel who worked for the Army Analysis Center and then had his own firm, the Energy & Security Group, run with his wife Judy. Steve was a colleague for our early education seminar series we held for five years at National Defense University on renewable energy for senior military leaders. Coordinates with the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Military Departments, CCMDs, and as needed foreign military organizations in support of exercises, technical cooperation, information sharing and bilateral/multilateral engagements related to energy. Assists in the development and preparation of materials (posture statements, testimony and backup material) for use by senior DoD leadership in the presentations to Congress, Congressional Committees, Congressional Budget Office, and other external organizations. And now there’s a new development to report. Without going into too much detail, the lab’s customers now include not just DOE’s nuclear energy organizations, but also DOE’s renewables, resilience and cyber-physical security components too.

This will enable employees to go forward and talk about their program, but at the same time feel comfortable that they’re not going to disclose any information that may not be classified or otherwise sensitive. My INL title: Senior Cyber & Energy Security Strategist – may sound a little pretentious, but it pretty accurately captures what I was hired to do. However, there is little about the market for solar equipment, including the photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules at issue here, that qualifies as free. These companies could be at risk of losing business and shedding jobs, if a large tariff were imposed on imported solar cells, modules and panels. DoD is a very large customer too, for energy, security and communications test functions, rounded out by direct work with utilities and energy and telecom technology suppliers. On Friday, he strapped on a fake suicide vest, armed himself with large kitchen knives and went on the rampage at a conference on prisoner rehabilitation beside London Bridge.

Three types of assets must be identified. For the benefit of their people, they must go far and quickly. It’s not about transmutation of lead into gold, it’s not water into wine, rather it’s something far more important to US and DOD operational energy assurance: a process to turn seawater into fuel for ships and aerial vehicles. There’s more at stake, because PV isn’t TV. However, if it is to grow as experts forecast and advocates claim is essential, then considerations such as long-term energy security can’t be ignored, while near-term job losses from a new tariff would be more than offset by subsequent growth. Postscript to the Postscript post: Though my blogs are in suspended animation, I continue to speak in public, and albeit more frequently and tersely, on Twitter @andybochman. As the Twitter profile reveals, I continue to work out of my home office in Boston while hitting the road most often for DC, and of course, now, Idaho.

If you visit the lab’s home page or the INL Twitter feed it seems like nuclear energy research and related nuclear work are its dominant activities. Much like CP-11, CP22A is a notice notifying the recipient that they owe a debt to the IRS. That’s precisely the point of the complaint: strengthening US solar manufacturers, so that the growth of solar energy in this country doesn’t end up like TV sets and other consumer electronics. The production and deployment of solar energy hardware has depended since its inception, and from one end of its value chain to the other, on significant government interventions. We need to reinvent how we create energy, how we value energy and how we consume energy. 3- way video hearings will be available so the attorney and client need not be in the same area. Aside from being convenient – utilizing resources around you for an immediate need is a benefit that speaks for itself – this will reduce the logistics tail on fuel delivery with no environmental burden.

While it’s yet to update its image online, a visit to Idaho Falls quickly confirms that this is one of the nation’s preeminent Energy Security lab resources. In short, INL in 2014 is not the lab many people think it is. DHS has become a major customer, as the lab hosts the ICS-CERT cyber security overwatch function for the US grid and other critical infrastructures, and performs other leading edge cyber and physical security roles as well. As well shall see, there were certainly a few post war connections to either man. There is an old African proverb that says, “If you want to go fast, go alone. There are numerous manufacturers who specialize in offering these fences. China-based PV manufacturers were also able to take advantage of extravagantly generous European solar subsidies in the 2000s to scale up their output, drive down their costs, and ultimately send much of the EU’s solar manufacturing industry into bankruptcy. Last October the US International Trade Commission issued its recommendations in favor of the complaint by two US manufacturers of solar panel components.
