Industrial Assessment Center Program

Funding: $26 million

Open Date: 07/14/2005

Close Date: 01/17/2006

Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

Funding Number: DE-PS36-06GO96000


The Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is soliciting applications for Industrial Assessment Centers (IACs). The IAC program enables small- and medium-sized manufacturers (those with energy costs between $100,000 and $2.5 million per year) to have comprehensive assessments performed at no cost to them. Teams of engineering faculty and students from the centers conduct assessments and provide training to help regional manufacturers operate more efficiently and improve competitiveness. The goals of the IAC program are to provide engineering students with practical experience and training in energy engineering; help small- and medium-sized manufacturers identify opportunities to improve energy efficiency, minimize waste, and improve productivity; integrate the IAC program into other Industrial Technology Program (ITP) and EERE program areas and activities; and create innovative approaches to delivering IAC, ITP, and EERE services, educational opportunities, and regional outreach.
