Illinois Green invites you to a 12 PM Webinar and optional Building Tour/Happy Hour Add-On to learn how communities and professionals across Chicagoland are adopting and adapting to EV technology at different scales and contexts.

Electric Vehicles (EVs) are growing in popularity thanks to generous incentives, high gas prices, and improved technology. How will developers, designers, and city planners accommodate the demands of this developing industry at the regional, portfolio, and project-level? Hear panelists exchange insights and approaches to expand EV use across planning, design, and development roles.

Speakers include:

  • Jane Wilberding, Senior Mobility Manager at HNTB
  • Edith Makra, Director of Environmental Initiatives at the Metro Mayors Caucus
  • Matt Ayers, Account Executive at Chargepoint

LEED professionals may self report 1 CE hour for this program! We will send self reporting instructions to all attendees after the program.

Optional Add-On: If you’d like to see an EV Charging set up in-person, join us later in the day for a Happy Hour and Tour of Sterling Bay’s Charging Station at 333 N Green St.

Then, feel free to join us across the street to Punchbowl Social for drinks and appetizers! Apps will be provided, drinks are on your own tab.

Time: Wednesday, May 24, 5:30 PM

Location: 333 N Green St. Chicago, IL 60607
