Grants to Illinois nonprofit organizations, local government agencies, and IHEs for projects that advance the use of renewable energy technologies throughout the state. Interested applicants are required to contact the Foundation prior to applying. Funding is intended to support projects in the areas of biomass technology, solar thermal technology, emerging technologies, and advancing renewable energy.

The Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation supports projects in categories where incentives are determined on a case-by-case basis:

  • Biomass projects use materials such as wood, energy crops, food and animal waste, that are turned into useful energy using a variety of processes, including combustion, gasification, anaerobic digestion, etc.
  • Projects in the Advancing Renewable Energy program, may include assistance with purchasing specialized renewable energy hardware for the implementation of hands-on training programs at colleges and universities.
  • Emerging Technologies supports renewable energy technologies that are not yet widely used in Illinois.
The Foundation gives priority to projects that:
  • Have secured all additional funding
  • Feature a strong education and outreach component, including permanent educational signage, displays, and other publicity materials

The Foundation adheres to the definition of renewable energy adopted in the Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Coal Development Law of 1997: The Law states that: "renewable energy resources" includes energy from wind, solar thermal energy, photovoltaic cells and panels, dedicated crops grown for energy production and organic waste biomass, hydropower that does not involve new construction or significant expansion of hydropower dams, and other such alternative sources of environmentally preferable energy.
