Energy Efficiency Policy Priorities in the Returning 116th Congress 
February 5, 2020 | Room 562 | Dirksen Senate Office Building | Capitol Hill | Washington, D.C.
8:00 – 9:00am     Breakfast and Registration
9:00 – 9:30am     Keynote Addresses 
Speakers TBD
9:30 – 10:30am   Infrastructure Panel
The FAST Act expires September 30, 2020 and Congress is working on the next reauthorization. To date, Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) is the only committee to move forward on its piece of the reauthorization, advancing a bill – the America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act (ATIA) – in late July 2019. Now that Congress is in a presidential election year, surface transportation reauthorization is likely the only major legislative package with a chance of being considered. This session will discuss the role of energy efficiency in surface transportation policy and take a deep dive into the FAST Act and the benefits and challenges that reauthorization presents. 
Speakers TBD 
10:30 – 11:00am   Networking Break
11:00 – 12:00pm   Energy Efficiency Tax Policy
Efficiency is one of the most powerful energy assets we have. It is by far the largest employer in the clean energy sector and also the single most effective solution we have for climate change. Yet the U.S. tax code has for years been woefully lacking in incentives for energy efficiency, whether in homes and buildings, manufacturing, or the transportation sector. We’ve convened a panel of experts to talk through what’s missing in the tax code and how we can fix it.
