Please note that travel priority to attend this year’s event will be given to DOE and National Laboratory attendees who have been invited to be speakers, moderators or have been identified as requiring critical training. This may result in a request to individuals who have registered but not received an invitation to alter their registration or travel reservations. The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) and the DOE Sustainability Performance Office (SPO) will continually monitor the registration lists to ensure access to the event for all DOE program offices and that travel quotas are not exceeded. Additional details will be released to DOE staff on attending Energy Exchange. If you are interested in attending but unsure if or when you should register, please contact FEMP_Training@EE.DOE.Gov for more information.

No later than February 28, 2024, but the sooner the better. The Resiada housing reservation site is tentatively scheduled to go offline on February 29 2024. Hotels cannot take direct reservations from Energy Exchange attendees until after that date. At that point, reservations will be taken based on availability and prevailing rates. If you contact the individual hotels before February 28 to book your room, they will direct you back to the Housing Manager.

The maximum number of rooms one person can reserve (within one reservation record) is 10 rooms. If your group needs 11 or more rooms, you might want to consider setting up a private sub-block.

After booking your hotel reservation, you will receive a Reservation Acknowledgment Number from Resiada, which is different from the hotel confirmation number. Your hotel confirmation number will be emailed to you directly by the hotel in early March. If you do not receive a Reservation Acknowledgement Number soon after you reserve your room(s), please contact the housing manager at


Reservation requests made on the housing site are not transferred to the hotels until early March, so if you call the hotel to confirm a reservation before that time, they will not have it uploaded into their system yet. Wait until March 7 or later to follow-up if you haven’t received a confirmation number directly from the hotel by that point.
