2017 National Summit on RPS

November 7 - 8, 2017

The 2017 National Summit on RPS will take place on Tuesday, November 7 and Wednesday, November 8 in Arlington, Virginia at the Westin Crystal City Hotel. Attending the Summit is the best way to learn about developments and trends related to state RPSs and to network with many of the people from across the country who are most engaged in implementing and analyzing state RPS programs. The Summit is hosted by the Clean Energy States Alliance, with generous financial support from the Energy Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy.

As in past years, the first day is open to all individuals interested in RPS issues; the second day is restricted to representatives of state governments and the federal government, so that they can share experiences, ideas, and common problems.

A draft agenda is available here.


**Registration ends October 27**
