We face a defining moment for energy efficiency policy on Capitol Hill. Lawmakers have made significant progress toward enacting the bold efficiency investments critical for reaching our climate goals in a way that prioritizes energy affordability and reliability. However, the true test lies ahead as lawmakers turn to implementation of funds from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, sending a climate-focused reconciliation bill to President Biden’s desk, and reaching agreement on a forward-looking 2022 budget among other pressing priorities.

We invite you to join us for the Alliance’s 2022 Policy Summit at Honeywell's office in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, March 10 to hear from top administration, congressional, and industry leaders on where federal energy efficiency policy stands today and the key issues to watch for in the coming months.

This event will be held in person at Honeywell's D.C. office, located at 101 Constitution Ave. NW #500W, Washington, D.C., 20001. The Policy Summit is closed to the press.

Speakers include:

Medha Surampudy, House Committee on Energy and Commerce Professional Staff Member
