Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers

On June 22, 2022, the Organization and Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of DTE Energy Company (the “Company”) approved the DTE Energy Company Executive Severance Allowance Plan (the “Plan”). The Plan establishes a uniform approach to severance applicable to eligible senior executives (which may include named executive officers) of the Company and its subsidiaries upon a termination of employment without Cause (as defined in the Plan). Senior executives who are entitled to receive benefits under any other Company severance plan, change-in-control severance agreement, employment agreement or other termination agreement, who are terminated for Cause, who voluntarily terminate or quit, or who terminate employment due to death or Disability (as defined in the Plan) are not eligible to receive payments or benefits under the Plan. In addition, in order to receive payments or benefits under the Plan, such senior executives must agree to a release of claims.

Under the Plan, eligible senior executives receive the following payments and benefits:
External outplacement assistance for up to six months (or the cash equivalent value thereof);
12 months COBRA (or the cash equivalent thereof); and
A lump sum equal to 100% of base pay plus annual incentive at target for senior executives with 2 or more years of service as a senior executive (50% of base pay plus annual incentive at target for those with less than 2 years).

The foregoing summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the terms of the Plan, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
