Approximately every two years, the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs invites tribal leaders and energy stakeholders to exchange ideas promoting energy infrastructure development for tribes and tribal communities.
As part of the DOE American Indian and Alaska Native Tribal Government Policy, the Office of Indian Energy, along with the DOE Office of Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs, hosts these summits in collaboration with the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Typically, tribal leaders—together with decision-makers from DOE, the administration, representatives from federal agencies, state governments, private industry, utilities and academia—attend to build networks, exchange ideas and explore cross-cutting and cost-effective solutions to national energy interests.
