Preparing for the Future of Electric Vehicles

While individuals and businesses transition to electric vehicles (EVs), it’s important to consider what governments need to understand when transitioning their fleets to electric.

One of the key areas that the panel will discuss is the charging infrastructure required to support electric vehicles. This includes the integration of high-speed 5G wireless networks in transportation, which will be transformative for Americans—generating billions of dollars in economic benefits, reducing congestion and saving lives. The panel will also discuss battery storage, power sources, and renewable energy, as these are critical components that enable the transition to electric vehicles and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Join the Chicagoland Chamber for an important discussion on the transition to EVs and gain insights on the steps required to support the future of EVs that will drive sustainable economic growth.
