Illinois Alliance for Clean Transportation is excited to present the second annual Southern Illinois regional Green Drives Conference and Expo on Thursday, August 1 at the Morris Center on the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville campus, hosted by SIUE and the National Corn Ethanol Research Center (NCERC).

Green Drives – one of the largest clean-transportation conferences held in the Midwest – is a must-attend event for government officials, commercial and municipal fleet managers, corporate sustainability officers, and clean-tech and clean-energy professionals who want to learn how to use cleaner, lower emissions fuels and technologies, while saving money.

Attendees will learn from and network with national and regional experts on fleet focused alternative fuels and electric vehicle best practices, solutions, resources, and technologies. Attendees will experience an integrated exhibition hall and examine fleet vehicles, and learn how to access federal and state financial resources that support the transition to clean fuels fleets.

Fleet managers can attend Green Drives for free! The offer is for commercial or government fleet managers or other fleet operations decision makers, such as directors, city managers, mayors or county officials.
