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.

Illinois Alliance for Clean Transportation presents the inaugural Southern Illinois regional Green Drives Conference and Expo on Friday, August 11 at the Morris Center on the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville campus, hosted by SIUE and the National Corn Ethanol Research Center (NCERC).

Experience the integrated exhibition hall and examine fleet vehicles. Learn about how to access federal and state financial resources that support the transition to clean fuels fleets. Spend one-on-one time with fleet vehicles, tour NCERC, and enjoy late afternoon beverages and light hors d'oeuvres.

Fleet managers can attend Green Drives for free! A MAXIMUM OF ONE free pass per organization is available. Additional tickets may be purchased. Offer is available for commercial or government fleet managers or other fleet operations decision makers, such as directors, city managers, mayors or county officials.
