The National Tribal Energy Summit was held May 1–3, 2017, in Washington, D.C. With its focus on Tribal Energy Sovereignty and Strengthening Strategic Partnerships, the 2017 Summit supported ongoing tribal and federal efforts to enhance energy security, increase resiliency, and cultivate a sustainable energy future.

Hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy in coordination with the National Conference of State Legislatures, the event brought tribal leaders together with senior administration officials and representatives from federal agencies, state governments, private industry, utilities, and academia to exchange ideas and explore new and permanent solutions to our combined energy challenges. For details, visit the National Tribal Energy Summit web page or email
