Ellen Bell

Senior Specialist, EDF Climate Corps and William K. Bowes Fellow

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


Accelerating energy efficiency project identification and implementation year-round at a subset of influential buildings in Chicago, with added support from EDF Climate Corps fellows during summer and educating building owners and operators about energy efficiency opportunities specific to Chicago by plugging them into local resources and incentives.


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.
