On May 22-23, the RNG Coalition hosted members for the North American renewable natural gas industry's 2017 RNG SUMMIT. RNG Coalition staff thanks each member representative who participated in the annual Fly-In, federal advocacy meetings and mid-year networking events.
For the first time, the 2017 RNG SUMMIT kicked off with a featured Policy Forum where representatives from the US EPA, DOE and USDA, along with executives from Washington Gas & Light, American Gas Association, Greater Washington Region Clean Cities, American Biogas Council, NGV America, and Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas provided a real-time, RNG-relevant update and Q&A for all attendees. (For a copy of presentations please contact RNG Coalition Staff).
Following the Policy Forum, RNG SUMMIT attendees enjoyed a hosted evening reception - made possible by the generous sponsorship of Senatorial Host DTE Biomass Energy and Co-Sponsor EcoEngineers at the UPS Townhouse.
On Tuesday, after an orientation breakfast (hosted by NGVAmerica) nine RNG Coalition Member-led Delegations met with nearly 50 offices on Capitol Hill, including new and key members of RNG-relevant policy committees in both the US House and Senate. RNG Coalition Executives, Directors and Members also participated in a Congressional Lunch Briefing, educating Congressional Staff and the general public on the economic and environmental benefits associated with renewable natural gas (for a link to the video recording of the briefing please contact RNG Coalition Staff).
In keeping with tradition, the RNG SUMMIT concluded at the Washington Nationals' Ballpark, with the home team securing an 11-1 victory over the visiting Seattle Mariners.
