Skokie Works to Improve Building Energy Use

Skokie Village Hall

The Village of Skokie, along with 14 other counties and municipalities in the United States, has been accepted into a U.S. Department of Energy pilot cohort that will assist communities in improving energy efficiency in municipal buildings and transitioning facilities to cleaner fuel sources.

Village staff will participate in the six-month Clean Energy to Communities (C2C) pilot cohort, which will include monthly workshops to help participants build an understanding of how to benchmark building energy use, discuss strategies to decarbonize building energy loads, and exchange challenges, strategies, and lessons learned with peer communities.

The program will assist the Village in achieving the goals laid out in the Skokie Environmental Sustainability Plan, approved by the Village Board in 2022, which calls for improving energy efficiency of municipal buildings by 15 percent and increasing on-site renewable energy use to 7.5 percent by 2030.

Cohort session topics may include strategies for municipal building decarbonization, energy efficiency, renewable energy and storage, and funding, financing and procurement. Other participating cities include Ames, IA; Baltimore, MD; Cincinnati, OH; Colorado Springs, CO; Key West, FL; and more.
