Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

DTE Energy Company (“DTE Energy”) will meet with investors on September 29, 2021. A copy of the slide presentation was furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to Current Report on Form 8-K filed on September 17, 2021 and is herein incorporated by reference. The slide presentation is available on DTE Energy's website, www.dteenergy.com.

In its business presentation and this filing, DTE Energy discusses 2021 operating earnings guidance. It is likely that certain items that impact the company's 2021 reported results will be excluded from operating results. Reconciliations to the comparable 2021 reported earnings guidance are not provided because it is not possible to provide a reliable forecast of specific line items (i.e. future non-recurring items, certain mark-to-market adjustments and discontinued operations). These items may fluctuate significantly from period to period and may have a significant impact on reported earnings.

In accordance with General Instruction B.2 of Form 8-K, the information in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibits 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall they be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth in such a filing.

Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
