Advancing Towards 100% Clean Energy: A State-Federal Summit

Wednesday, May 17, 2023 to Thursday, May 18, 2023


You are invited to attend a conference on how states and the federal government can work cooperatively to accelerate states’ efforts to decarbonize. The conference— Advancing Towards 100% Clean Energy: A State-Federal Summit — is part of a new initiative from the US Department of Energy, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA).

By attending this meeting, you can:

  • Meet state officials and stakeholders working on deep decarbonization in states across the country;
  • Hear from and interact with federal officials who are administering federal clean energy initiatives;
  • Explore opportunities for state implementation of provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law;
  • Learn about innovative state-level clean energy programs.

The first day of the meeting is open to all stakeholders, while the second day is limited to state and federal government employees.

For participants who are not from state or federal government agencies, there is a $190 registration fee to attend Day 1 of the Summit on May 17th, which must be received by May 1, 2023.
