NATSO Transportation Energy Policy Summit

Because of the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and the corresponding restrictions in place at this time, NATSO is transitioning its in-person Summit to a robust webinar exploring the Business Case for EV Charging at Retail

Join us Monday, September 20 from 1:30 p.m.-3 p.m. ET, when NATSO, EV charging equipment providers, and fuel retailers will engage in a policy discussion exploring the opportunities and challenges to deploying EV charging infrastructure in the retail fuel space as well as the policies necessary to make the business case for investment in EV charging stations as attractive as possible. Register here.

We remain committed to this important topic and will continue to engage in discussions that explore ways for fuel retailers and other stakeholders to make investments in transportation energy with lower carbon intensity. 

-- Postponed --

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.

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