The Expo is open to the public and free for attendees.

The 2018 Congressional Clean Energy Expo and Policy Forum will bring together 40-50 businesses, trade associations, and government agencies to showcase renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. In every state across the country, these technologies are having a significant impact in business development and job creation in the manufacturing, transmission, power, transportation, and building sectors. The bipartisan House Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Caucus is the Expo's honorary co-host.

A Policy Forum runs concurrently to the EXPO, and will include a number of issue panels drawn from exhibitors.
