Illinois Gap Analysis Report

Illinois Gap Analysis Report

The purpose of the Illinois Gap Analysis Report is twofold: 1) document and analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the state’s existing energy code adoption and implementation infrastructure and policies; 2) recommend potential actions state agencies, local jurisdictions, and other stakeholders can take to achieve 100 percent compliance with the model energy codes. The report is organized into four sections: Introduction, Adoption, Implementation, and Conclusion.

The Adoption and Implementation sections include some of the state’s current best practices and recommendations for actions that would improve energy code compliance. The Introduction section of the report provides an overview of important demographic and economic indicators, including important population centers, population growth, construction activity and energy consumption.
