Energy Department Holds Two-Day Tribal Summit

Leaders meet in Washington, D.C. to discuss Tribal energy sovereignty

The Department of Energy (DOE) hosted the 7th biennial Tribal Energy Summit in Washington, D.C., on October 4th and 5th. There, department leaders met with Tribal leaders in a roundtable to discuss the energy goals of each Indigenous Nation and how federal programs can help them achieve those goals. They also discussed how Tribal leaders can better participate in the decision-making process for national energy infrastructure.

“DOE is proud to host the 2022 Tribal Clean Energy Summit and we are committed to listening to and working with Tribal nations as they unlock benefits that come with the deployment of clean energy – lower energy costs, more jobs, and cleaner air,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for Secretary Granholm as she collaborates with tribal leaders.
  • For Energy Department officials as they implement and support programs to assist tribal energy infrastructure.
  • For Tribal leaders to be discerning in their approach to energy production and infrastructure.
