The newly formed Illinois Alternative Fuels Alliance is hosting an alternative fuel vehicle and technology information session and expo for legislative officials, state employees and the general public on Wednesday, May 10, at the Illinois Capitol Building in Springfield.
As reported, the Illinois Alternative Fuels Alliance will showcase various projects and businesses in Illinois that are using clean vehicle technologies.
Specifically, the event will feature more than a dozen vehicles powered by alternative fuels, including propane, biodiesel, ethanol, electricity and natural gas.
Regional stakeholders and partners will also be available to help attendees learn about the clean air, health and environmental benefits of these technologies.
The alliance consists of organizations that work on clean air and clean vehicle solutions throughout Illinois. Alliance partners include Chicago Area Clean Cities, St. Louis Regional Clean Cities, the American Lung Association, Renewable Energy Group and the Illinois Propane Gas Association.
“We’ve put together the Illinois Alternative Fuels Alliance to help public officials in Illinois learn about clean vehicle technologies and to help them understand what is happening with alternative fuel vehicles,” says John Walton, chairman of Chicago Area Clean Cities.
“It is amazing to see these groups come together to promote clean fuels and clean vehicles,” he continues. “Together, we can have an even greater impact on the environment and save fleets money.”
