The Energy Innovation Center aims to contribute to workforce development, foster energy and sustainable technology advancement, and assist in job creation within the Pittsburgh area. The EIC is a 6.6 acre urban complex that promotes energy-sector research and innovation, and will hopefully become a tool for urban economic revitalization in the Hill District. The EIC is a collaboration between Pittsburgh Gateways Corporation, the region’s corporations, research universities, economic development organizations, and the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory. The LEED Platinum certified building implements the best practices for energy-efficient neighborhoods.
