Advancing the EPC Industry in Wisconsin
Wisconsin’s market-leading industry capabilities, advanced academic research, specialized institutions and assets have made it a global leader in energy, power and control (EPC). The state is generating new ideas, advanced applications and sustainable energy technologies that are gaining global recognition. To date, more than 900 companies in Wisconsin’s growing EPC sector employ over 100,000 people and generate $38 billion in annual sales.
A Thoughtful Approach
Not only is Wisconsin rich with EPC companies committed to collaboration, it is also home to energy innovation. The Wisconsin Energy Institute at UW-Madison houses five floors of research labs and workspace to support and catalyze energy research. And recently WEDC awarded more than $850,000 in grants to M-WERC for the development of the Energy Innovation Center (EIC), a facility that will accelerate the creation of innovative technology and position Milwaukee as a global hub for the industry. It’s clear that Wisconsin companies are working to build a stronger, more sustainable EPC network.
