Tribal leaders took part in a day-long meeting hosted by the Department of Energy on Monday.

The Obama administration is soliciting input from Indian Country as it develops the first-ever Quadrennial Energy Review. The document will guide federal policy for energy transmission, storage and distribution.

"The QER will examine the appropriate federal role in a dramatically changed energy landscape, and where appropriate, how the federal government can be supportive of state, local and tribal efforts to modernize energy infrastructure," the department said in a background memo for the meeting.

Tribal officials discussed jurisdictional issues at two panels during the meeting. They also offered comments to Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and Interior Secretary Sally Jewell.

Another meeting for the QER will be held in Wyoming on August 21.
