“Guiding Principles for Beneficial Electrification of Transportation: A Framework for Transportation Electrification in Illinois” is the result of a collaborative effort spearheaded by Dr. Elizabeth A. Kocs building on collaborative workshops spanning six months of meetings and discussion sessions with numerous local, regional and national stakeholders and respective representatives. This Report represents the discussions as a whole and is an amalgamation of everything that UIC and Dr. Kocs have seen from the workshops it hosted as well as recent events since the conclusion of the workshops that may provide additional insight and guidance on the topic of beneficial electrification of transportation. The goal of the report is to provide proactive, innovative and sustainable solutions to address climate change, fossil fuel usage, community and economic development, and efficiency issues. The content of the report also demonstrates the potential of transportation electrification to create manufacturing and supply chain jobs, increase involvement in trades, open opportunities for BIPOC communities, reduce sick days taken from school and work, and so much more.
