The Foundation supported projects in categories including solar thermal, biomass, advancing renewable energy and emerging technologies.
Solar thermal – to provide hot water, heating and cooling for buildings.
Biomass – to use materials such as wood, energy crops, food and animal waste, that can be turned into useful energy using processes including combustion, gasification and anaerobic digestion.
Advancing renewable energy – to purchase specialized renewable energy hardware for hands-on training programs at colleges and universities.
Emerging technologies – to support renewable energy technologies that were not widely used in Illinois.
