Electric Vehicle Forums
Please join us for a day of discussion and education relating to the potential opportunities and challenges relating to the use of electric vehicles in Illinois.  Presenters from different areas throughout the industry will be on hand to share their insights and to answer questions from the audience. 

These forums have been specifically designed to provide information that is relevant to municipal entities, private groups, fleet owners, electric service companies, car dealerships, car rental companies, car mechanics and the general public.

Topic areas currently consist of the following:

  • EV 101 – A panel discussion covering everything from basic electric vehicle terminology to perspectives from the automotive manufacturers and utility companies.
  • Electric Vehicle Recharging – recharging options, consumer behaviors and electric rate options for EV owners
  • Incentives for Today and the Future – Rebates, tax breaks and other incentives available for the purchase of electric vehicles and recharging infrastructure.
  • Environmental and Health Impacts of Electric Vehicles
  • Recharging station safety
  • Local pilot projects – Lessons learned from current electric vehicle owners

Attendance is free, but is limited to the first 60 registrants at each location.  Each of the forums are expected to be full day sessions lasting from approximately 9AM to 4PM and will include lunch.  We ask that you please register for the forum in advance to ensure your attendance.
