Updating Our Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Featuring Siemens USA CEO Barbara Humpton

As Federal, State and Local Governments prioritize electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure across the nation, the Midwest is poised to seamlessly connect America’s first sustainable road trip. From electric vehicle drivers and manufacturers, to utilities, and government regulatory bodies — the impacts of electrified transportation are enormous.

Join us for a special breakfast panel, featuring Siemens USA, the Illinois Department of Transportation, the Illinois Commerce Commission, and Illinois’ Electric Vehicle Officer on August 25 to discuss efforts that are underway to build out an EV charging network, and the unique opportunities and challenges that come along with it. Barbara Humpton will be joined by Illinois Commerce Chair Carrie Zalewski, Illinois Department of Transportation Deputy Secretary Becky Locker, and the newly appointed Illinois Electrical Vehicle Officer Megha Lakhchaura. Join the Chicagoland Chamber for this unique breakfast to learn more about how our country’s charging infrastructure is preparing to implement vital growth in this booming industry.
