Description:

Clean Tech: Where Economic Growth & Equity Intersect in Illinois
 

Join members of the Clean Tech Economy Coalition’s (CTEC) advisory committee as they discuss Illinois’ proposal for Phase 2 of the Build Back Better Regional Challenge. CTEC is preparing a $201M project proposal with an initial $99.3M requested from the federal government and $101.6M of matching funds from coalition members, industry, and local government.

Learn how the Coalition’s six projects were designed around existing regional assets to transform the state’s economy through grid modernization, emerging clean technologies, electric vehicles, workforce development and supply chain optimization.

CTEC is currently seeking affiliate partners who want to engage in Illinois’ future Clean Tech economy. There will be a Q&A at the end of the sessions to answers questions about how to get involved.
