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. 
 
Moderator: Genevieve Cullen, President, Electric Drive Transportation Association
Speakers:  Brad Stertz, Director, Government Affairs, Audi 
                  Eric McCarthy, SVP, Government Relations, Public Policy, and Legal Affairs, Proterra 
 
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.
 
Moderator: Ben Evans, VP, Government Affairs and Communications, The Alliance to Save Energy
Speakers: Adam Letcher, President, Fifth Fuel
                 Lauren Urbanek, Senior Energy Policy Advocate, NRDC
                 Bryan Howard, Legislative Director, USGBC
