Winter 2010 Meeting

State Energy Policy and
Technology Outlook Conference
February 1-4, 2010
Fairmont Hotel - 2401 M Street, NW, Washington, DC

The 2010 ASERTTI / NASEO State Energy Policy and Technology Outlook Conference will be held February 1–5, 2010, at the Fairmont Hotel in Washington, D.C. This year’s State Energy Policy, Program, and Technology Outlook Conference comes as the States and the nation are in the midst of an historic energy efficiency and renewable energy transformation. New policies and investments are moving rapidly and at an unprecedented scale with additional programs being contemplated by Congress and the Administration in the coming weeks.

To better prepare and inform conference attendees, ASERTTI and NASEO have planned a full week of informative events, with the core conference agenda being complimented by pre-meeting ARRA and committee sessions starting at noon on February 1, 2010, followed by an important post-conference ARRA-related building codes workshop which concludes on February 5, 2010, at 3:00 pm.

The 2010 ASERTTI / NASEO State Energy Policy and Technology Outlook Conference will serve as an essential opportunity for State Energy Office (SEO) directors, staff, and interested stakeholders to hear the latest on ARRA and the implementation and reporting issues that SEOs are currently facing.
