Illinois Alliance for Clean Transportation
The Illinois Alliance for Clean Transportation works with vehicle fleets, fuel providers, community leaders, and other stakeholders to save energy and promote the use of domestic fuels and advanced vehicle technologies in transportation.
As the Clean Transportation Program Director for the City of Chicago’s Department of Transportation, Samantha Bingham is responsible for developing and implementing policies, programs and projects that reduce emissions from the transportation sector and assisting in achieving the City's sustainability goals. During her 14-year tenure at the City, she has leveraged over $70 million in local and federal grant funding for clean vehicle incentive programs in the Chicago region, including the deployment of electric vehicle charging stations and medium- and heavy-duty hybrid and electric trucks and buses. Bingham also serves as the U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities coalition director for the Illinois Alliance for Clean Transportation whose goal is to reduce petroleum in the transportation sector primarily through education and technical assistance. She leads the coalition’s current effort to promote EV education to the public, local car dealerships and employers to provide EV charging for employees. In 2015, Bingham was inducted into the Clean Cities Hall of Fame.
