Projects Pushpin Projects

AMO Project Award

AMO provided seed funding to 23 awardees for the development and delivery of industrial energy efficiency programs at the state and regional levels. These projects are aimed at delivering assessments, trainings, and technical resources to manufacturers to achieve significant reductions in industrial energy intensity.

R&D Projects and Successes

R and D Pushpin - Denotes Projects on map above

In order to meet the challenges of improving energy efficiency, the Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) helps to mitigate its industry partners' energy use. Both share the cost of research and development (R&D) projects while reaching the common goals of improving not only energy efficiency, but economic viability, energy security, environmental quality, and resource conservation.

State Incentives and Resource Database

This database is a comprehensive collection of incentives and resources for implementing energy-efficiency measures in a commercial or industrial facility. These incentives are often financial and are in place to reward business and residential customers for making strides in energy efficiency. The resources are in the form of analysis tools, education and training programs, and energy audits. The following link will take you to a site that will show you the energy incentives and resources in California.

State Incentive Handbooks
AMO has created handbooks of available resources and incentives for industrial energy efficiency implementation organized by system for each of the 50 states.

Resource Fact Sheets
AMO developed 50 resource fact sheets that identify local, regional, state, and utility organizations in each state that can serve as partners working together with manufacturers to advance industrial energy efficiency.
