The array of technical expertise the ERC offers is testament to the integral role it plays with partners across the state in supporting greater energy efficiency. With a characteristically nuanced approach, ever-evolving methodologies, and an eye for technological development, the ERC has spent years working with institutions in both private and public sectors to develop cost-effective, and practical solutions to reduce energy consumption. With the institutional support of the University of Illinois, the ERC continually makes strides in energy efficiency through it’s consultations, audits, and evaluations.
As developments in energy in the State of Illinois resemble a microcosm of developments on the world stage, a holistic view of energy infrastructure and markets is at the forefront of finding pathways to energy efficiency. In sharing its technical insight, the ERC lends scalable solutions it hopes can help our society in the years to come. The ERC firmly believes that like with many things, ‘seeing is believing’. By consulting individual organizations and buildings, the growing library of case studies are a positive example in the advancement of energy efficiency.
