SEDAC is an applied research program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign supported by the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO) Illinois Energy Now program. SEDAC is a public-private partnership that operates in collaboration with the 360 Energy Group along with other energy entities across the state like the Energy Resources Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

SEDAC provides valuable services at no cost to Illinois businesses and public facilities.

Program Goals:

  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.
  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.
