Smart Grid Cluster
July 2016 — Present
The Smart Grid Cluster supports economic growth for companies building the future of energy and the grid. We offer a combination of business, technical and financing support services that leverage the Illinois region’s robust corporate and research assets, and drive the continual economic growth of the energy innovation ecosystem.
The Smart Grid Cluster is supported through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and is managed by a partnership of Illinois’ leading energy organizations.
Located at Coalition: Energy, the hub of cleantech startups, we offer a vast portfolio of resources for entrepreneurs and small businesses. Services include business strategy, technical consulting, financing, community development and access to a broad network of VCs and energy professionals.
