Green Drives Conference and Expo

Illinois Alliance for Clean Transportation is excited to present the annual Green Drives Conference & Expo on Thursday, May 9, 2024, hosted by Powering Chicago at the IBEW-NECA Technical Institute in Alsip, Illinois.

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.

Advanced vehicle technologies, electric vehicles, and alternative fuels were showcased, including dozens of green vehicles and exhibitors. Attendees will not only have a chance to network with experts from throughout the nation and the region, but will learn of first-hand experiences from fleets currently using alternative fuels and electric vehicles. 

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.

This offer is for a limited time only - To receive a complimentary pass, send your request by March 29 at 5PM CT to Bethany at bethany@il-act.org with your name, title, organization, and contact information. Upon approval, a special registration link will be sent to you to redeem your ticket. Only one free pass is available per organization. Additional tickets may be purchased.
