The Energy Independence Summit is the nation’s premier clean transportation policy summit.

The 2021 all virtual summit will bring together leaders of the nation’s Clean Cities Coalitions, the clean transportation industry, the Biden Administration and Congress to discuss new strategies for advancing markets for clean fuels and vehicles.

The 2021 All Virtual Summit will include two key components:


Roundtables with Administration and Congressional Leaders

March 17-19

Participate in roundtable discussions with leaders of the Biden Administration’s clean transportation team, key Congressional committees, federal agencies, and the electric vehicle, natural gas, propane, biofuels, and hydrogen industries. Learn the latest about tax incentives, infrastructure investments and funding opportunities.

Capitol Hill Week Meetings with Congressional Offices

March 22-26

Participate in Capitol Hill Week, where we will hold more than 300 virtual meetings with House and Senate offices. This will be a great opportunity to showcase how your fuels, technologies, and projects are reducing emissions and creating thousands of clean energy jobs in communities across America.

The 2021 Energy Independence Summit will provide an important opportunity to build on our recent successes. With the new Biden Administration and a new Congress recently taking office, there will be renewed focus on practical solutions to climate change that will create thousands of new clean energy jobs.
