e-co lab: Services

Energy Consulting Services for Developers and Individuals

Incorporating high energy efficiency and indoor air quality standards into every new home without significant additional costs is eminently possible with readily accessible technology. e-co lab provides housing developers and individuals with the professional, technical, and educational services to successfully complete homes that

exceed the highest energy and air quality standards currently implemented in the United States.

Monitoring Performance

To create a scientific body of documentation and to back up our assertions about the buildings, e-co lab collects data and monitors the energy performance of the implemented homes in Urbana. This research provides quality assurance for the buildings, and furnishes tools to educate both public and private sectors in developing sustainable energy efficient housing. We seek to refine systems and to report documented, real-world savings.

Developing New Concepts through Experimental Construction Projects

e-co lab seeks research grants and donations to test new methods and systems in construction projects.

Educating the Community, Builders and Professionals

We provide seminars and participate in a great many conferences, workshops, and symposia for builders, professionals and individuals to promote knowledge about energy efficient building and sustainable living.
