Energy is used by everyone in the state of Illinois – we all rely on some form of energy or another as we live, work and play in a 21st century society.  However, where does this energy come from?  What are the challenges and opportunities associated with energy development and transportation?  Are renewable energies really the answer? What’s next?  Tom Wolf, the executive director of the Chamber’s Energy Council will give a high-level overview of energy issues in Illinois in an effort to ensure policy decisions are based on realty and not fantasy. 

What do Illinois businesses think about hydraulic fracturing, energy conservation, climate change or exporting oil?  This presentation will provide some insights as to the priorities for Illinois businesses when it comes to energy and where it might lead us in the coming years.  Plus, it includes references to Princess Leia, Whack-a-Mole, and the 80’s rock icon, Meatloaf (Google him) – so it can’t be all bad, right?
