WRI – Electric School Buses: The Opportunity for Illinois

Co-hosted by WRI and the Electrification Coalition, Electric School Buses: The Opportunity for Illinois will feature public-sector leaders, industry experts, electric vehicle advocates, and school district representatives. This executive-appropriate online discussion is your chance to engage directly with experts on the latest policy, funding, and technology developments and to help chart Illinois’ electric school bus future.

We are excited to welcome Deputy Governor Christian Mitchell and Senator Dick Durbin, who will share their views on the importance of transitioning Illinois’ school bus fleets to electric vehicles and discuss how state and federal programs are paving the road ahead.

School bus electrification will improve health and academic outcomes for students, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, strengthen grid security, and expand the green economy. Join us to make sure the Prairie State seizes this critical opportunity.
