Illinois Institute of Technology
The Galvin Electricity Initiative, Illinois Institute of Technology and the Department of Energy partnered to design the country’s first Perfect Power System. Perfect Power at IIT is setting an example for smart grid projects throughout the country. Launched in 2006, this smart microgrid-based system is a ground-breaking approach to electricity distribution and management
The four Exelon Pavilions, which use state-of-the art technology to convert solar energy into electricity, are an integral part of Chicago’s efforts to become the most environmentally-friendly city in North America. Together, the Pavilions provide enough electricity annually to power 14 star-rated energy-efficient houses in Chicago.
The northwest and northeast pavilions are minimalist black cubes designed to complement the neighboring Harris Theater.
The northwest pavilion houses the Millennium Park Welcome Center, along with an Exelon energy display area
