NATSO Transportation Energy Policy Summit

Recognizing that the market is moving to lower the carbon intensity of transportation energy, NATSO is bringing together thought leaders from various stakeholder groups at the NATSO Transportation Energy Policy Summit to discuss what market participants need to continue in this direction and how public policies can be crafted to achieve the desired outcomes.

The NATSO Transportation Energy Policy Summit is an opportunity for policymakers, fuel retailers, transportation energy producers, equipment manufacturers, automakers and others to discuss the future of transportation energy and identify hurdles and opportunities as the country moves toward a cleaner transportation sector.

NATSO’s Transportation Energy Policy Summit will be held Monday, Sept. 20 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill. It will be followed by a Networking Reception from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The Summit is being produced by NATSO—the premier trade association representing truckstops, travel plazas and other off-highway transportation energy retailers.
