Ellen Bell

Manager, Midwest Clean Energy

Areas of expertise: Industrial sustainability, specifically energy efficiency, environmental and energy management systems, public policy and peer networking


Ellen Bell manages the Redefining Energy Efficiency Project by working with commercial office buildings and other partners in Chicago. The project develops new approaches that value efficiency, advanced energy management, and existing and emerging technologies as a source of revenue, as well as helps to build new markets where efficiency measures will be readily adopted. By harnessing the power of markets, choice, and incentives, Ellen helps to unlock the economic, health, and environmental advantages of energy efficiency.


My five years working as a legislative aide for Chicago Alderman Ed Burke and subsequent experience as a Sustainability Manager for a global food manufacturer gives me an excellent mix of expertise on the both the City of Chicago and energy efficiency.
