    Each year, Transportation Energy Partners hosts the Energy Independence Summit (EIS) in Washington D.C. EIS is the nation’s leading clean transportation policy summit. The Summit offers exclusive opportunities for Clean Cities Coalitions, leaders, and stakeholders in the clean transportation industry to network and establish connections with each other and Congressional and Administration policymakers.

    With active participation and support, the 2018 Summit was successful in extending alternative fuel tax incentives, preserving the Renewable Fuel Standard, and saving the DOE Clean Cities program while increasing their funding by nearly $38 million! Your involvement is essential in order to educate the new Congress and Administration about the importance of these effective programs and illustrate how they are critical to advance markets for alternative fuels, vehicles, infrastructure and advanced technology.

    The Energy Independence Summit 2019 will take place at the Westin Georgetown Hotel in Washington, DC on Sunday February 10th-Wednesday February 13th. Register here or visit http://tep.sre.events for more information.
