Energy and Renewables in Illinois

Illinois Renewable Energy Industry

Renewable Energy

More than 300 companies are part of the wind, solar, and geothermal supply chains in Illinois with the wind industry being by far the largest sector. The Chicago region is home to 13 corporate headquarters of major wind power companies including Acciona Energy, Broadwind Energy, Nordex, Suzlon and Goldwind. Other large manufacturers such as Vestas, Siemens-Winergy and Trinity Structural Towers also have manufacturing facilities in Illinois. Large developers include Iberdrola, E.ON , Gamesa and PNE Wind.

Battery Energy

The batteries that make smart phones and similar devices possible are getting smaller, longer lasting and more powerful, while the business opportunities they represent are growing larger than ever.

Illinois is on the lead lap in both trends, putting the state on the fast track in commercializing the latest innovations.

A small sample of the innovation taking place in Illinois in battery technology:

  • Ampy, maker of the world's first and smallest wearable motion charger.
  • AllCell Technologies, whose innovative composite material improves battery safety and life.
  • SiNode Systems, which is developing advanced materials for the next generation of lithium-ion batteries.

Illinois' leadership position is strengthened by its unique resources, including two major federal laboratories – Fermi and Argonne – and by research being conducted at universities across the state.
