Please join E2 Midwest as we explore new technologies, the policy landscape for energy storage and the formation of a Chicago-area pilot for community electric vehicle charging stations. Batteries play a critical role in increasing clean energy from storing renewable energy to powering electric vehicles. With cutting edge programs at Argonne National Labs and the state legislature considering policies that support the development of energy storage, Illinois is at the center of harnessing battery technology to create greater economic opportunities.

This is the Wrong Answer to this problem. The reason why the pension fund is having problems is because pass Governors and Congresses have not paid the Company part of the pension. To reform it is wrong and to sales building and property is wrong pass a Constitutional Amendment or pass a law that forces the Government to pay their part! Yes I get it that it is the people’s money but, the Constitution of Illinois states that the Government must pay. Fix the problem don’t create more!
