Environmental Defense Fund
We worked with the Environmental Defense Fund to design and deliver the 2014 Climate Corps Fellows training program. EDF Climate Corps Fellows are specially-trained graduate students who are placed in companies, cities and universities as dedicated energy problem solvers. Working with hundreds of leading organizations, EDF Climate Corps fellows have found an average of $1 million in energy savings for each participant. The training covered fundamental energy and water efficiency strategies and opportunities for office buildings, financial analysis and strategies for overcoming organizational barriers, making the business case and engaging employees.

We provide training for building professionals served by the largest electric utility in northern Illinois and the Chicago metropolitan area. Visit our ComEd training page.
