Smart Energy Design Assistance Center

360 Energy Group works in partnership with an applied research program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Energy Resources Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago to administer the Smart Energy Design Assistance Center (SEDAC). The SEDAC was designed to achieve energy efficiency savings in buildings throughout the State of Illinois.

To date, SEDAC has identified more than $50 million in annual energy cost savings for its participants.

SEDAC’s program goals include:

  1. Reduce the cost of doing business for Illinois entities through energy efficiency design assistance projects.  By expanding consumer awareness of energy efficient design alternatives and retrofit options, we transform markets to make these choices more viable.

  2. Demonstrate the cost effectiveness of energy efficiency strategies as a response to higher energy prices.

  3. Support job creation and retention in Illinois by reducing operating costs and providing a variety of opportunities (for architects, engineers and other building professionals) to learn and practice innovative, efficient building design and construction techniques. Jobs study.

  4. Support electric and natural gas reliability in the state by promoting energy efficient building practices that release system capacity.

  5. Reduce pollution by minimizing wasted energy and demonstrate that reducing environmental impact yields improved economic viability.
