Chicago Area Clean Cities invites you to attend its eighth annual Green Drives Conference and Expo on Thursday, May 16, at the Northern Illinois University Conference Center in Naperville, IL.

Transportation now accounts for the largest portion of total U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and is a major contributor to the Chicago area’s air quality issues. Green Drives is a must-attend event for government officials, commercial and municipal fleet managers, small businesses, and clean-tech and clean-energy professionals who want to learn how to use cleaner, lower emissions fuels and technologies, while saving money.

Highlights of this year’s program include:

  • John Davis, the Emmy Award-winning host of “MotorWeek,” will once again serve as the program’s emcee.
  • Joseph Dominguez, CEO, ComEd, shines the light on electrification of passenger vehicles, fleet vehicles, and transit buses.
  • Get your garage ready for alternative fuels with a session hosted by GTI.
  • Explore renewable diesel and biodiesel as a clean-burning, renewable fuel with the B20 Club and Renewable Energy Group.
  • Updates on hydrogen fuel with a H2-powered bus at the program.

Advanced vehicle technologies, electric vehicles, and alternative fuels will be showcased, including dozens of green vehicles and exhibitors. Attendees not only get a chance to network with experts from throughout the nation and the region, but they learn of first-hand experiences from fleets currently using alternative fuels and electric vehicles. Attendees also get the chance to test drive vehicles of all different sizes.
