CHICAGO ADVANCED ENERGY
Electricity costs, infrastructure, and sophisticated markets will play a critical role in shaping Chicago’s economy and position as a global smart city. Greater Chicagoland’s population is on track to grow 25% in the next 25 years. As electricity costs fluctuate due to supply conditions distribution costs rise to meet peak demand, large energy consumers will either be at the root of the problem or the forefront the solution.
Distributed energy solutions, like energy storage and bi-fuel onsite generation, which enable consumers to act as virtual power providers are being developed in collaboration with public utility commissions, distribution utilities and grid operators. These solutions will build off current successes, be highly regional and economically beneficial.
By examining the underlying needs from a variety of perspectives i.e. - policy, socio-economic, or planning, we strive to create an impressive track record of groundbreaking energy projects that are commercially viable (i.e. profitable) and scalable.
