Initiatives and Results

Heat Pump in Cold Climate Applications

Partner: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

NREL has partnered with ComEd to research the technical aspects and potential energy savings of high-efficiency variable-speed air-source heat pumps in cold climates.

Refrigerated Display Cases with Propane Refrigerant

Partner: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

NREL’s research partnership with ComEd examines the technical aspects and potential energy savings of refrigerated display cases cooled by R290 propane refrigerant.

Water Market Analysis

Partner: Axiom Marketing

This research project identified the greatest opportunities to reduce both water and associated energy consumption in the ComEd service territory.

Switched Reluctance Motor Conveyor Systems

Partner: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

NREL’s research partnership with ComEd will examine the technical aspects and potential energy savings of switch reluctance motors in conveyor applications.

RTU Motor Study

Partner: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

ComEd's research partnership with NREL examined the energy and peak demand savings potential of new rooftop unit technologies.

AMI Data Analytics for Program Administration Enhancement

Partner: Uplight

Through analysis of customer usage and energy efficiency program participation data, EnergySavvy will detect program trends with potential to benefit the Residential HVAC and Small Business offerings.

Income Eligible Paging Display

ComEd® Internally Led Project

This project further tests the use of the 152MHz paging network to provide information to customers without requiring internet access.

All-Electric Residential New Construction

Partner: Slipstream

Slipstream is conducting a market analysis of the all-electric homes market in Illinois to determine the viability of a program offering.

Green Stormwater Infrastructure

Partners: Greenprint Partners, MIST Environment

This research project identified municipalities in the ComEd service territory with the greatest potential for adopting green stormwater infrastructure in order to create new energy savings opportunities in the wastewater treatment sector. The potential energy savings and non-energy impacts of adoption were then quantified.

Home Energy Reports Paperless Experience

Partner: Oracle

This field test of monthly electronic Home Energy Reports and High Bill Alerts for residential customers by Oracle will help determine whether savings can be generated in a more cost-effective manner.

Home Energy Reports Target Rank

Partner: Oracle

Oracle is field testing a Target Rank module in their Home Energy Reports for residential customers that aims to provide greater savings motivation than their Neighbor Comparison module.

Smart Pressure Independent Control Valves

Partners: Slipstream, FlowEnergy

This project is testing the potential energy savings for chilled water systems of the smart valve technology developed by FlowEnergy in commercial sites in ComEd® service territory.
