The DuPage Energy Summit is an opportunity to discuss how the county can, through collaboration, reduce GHG emissions and improve the quality of life in the county. Speakers will present specific, local success stories about reducing vehicle miles traveled, increasing energy efficiency at various scales and gaining funding.

The free summit is open to the public. It is especially intended for local municipalities, businesses, school districts, hotels, retailers and representatives from manufacturing and industrial sectors.
