R&D Projects and Successes
- 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. The following list provides Vermont's active and complete partner projects:
Large Plant Assessments (ESAs)
With emphasis on reducing natural gas consumption, DOE provides American businesses, factories, and manufacturing facilities with on-site Energy Savings Assessments (ESAs). The purpose of these assessments is to identify immediate opportunities to save energy and money that will lead to significant long-term savings. Gold and silver stars represent facilities that have been recognized for their achievements in industrial energy savings. The following is a list of businesses that have all benefited from AMO assessments in Vermont:

Medium / Small Plant Assessments (IACs)
Industrial Assessment Centers (IACs) provide eligible small- and medium-sized manufacturers with no-cost, on-site energy assessments to identify potential savings opportunities. The following is a list of IAC training participants in Vermont for the past two years. A complete collection of all the publicly available assessment and recommendation data is available at the AMO IAC database.

AMO provides information on upcoming energy efficiency events and trainings, case studies on replicable industrial energy efficiency projects, and contact information for Industrial Assessment Centers (IAC), Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Centers, and Regional Clean Energy Application Centers.
Case Studies in Vermont
Each year AMO develops new case studies on research, development and demonstration projects; energy assessments; the use of AMO tools and training; and leveraging of AMO partner resources for energy efficiency project implementation. The case studies are developed jointly with AMO's industrial partners. The following is a list of the case studies in Vermont:
Improving Ventilation System Performance at a Metal Plating Facility (Lockheed Martin Armament Systems) (Metal Casting)
Lockheed Martin Armament Systems
Industrial Assessment Centers (IACs) for Region
There are 26 Industrial Assessment Centers (IACs), sponsored by AMO, located at universities across the U.S. IACs provide no-cost energy assessments to small- and medium-sized manufacturers within a 150-mile radius. Additionally, they provide industrial assessment and energy management systems training for the next generation of energy engineers.
Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEPs) in Vermont
The National Institute of Standards and Technology's Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) is a not-for-profit network of businesses and manufacturing specialists, with almost 60 MEP centers across the nation. Funded by state, local, and private organizations, and in partnership with the IACs, they provide a variety of services to U.S. industry, including process improvements, innovation strategies, and green manufacturing techniques.
Clean Energy Regional Application Centers
Formerly the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Regional Application Centers (RACs), the eight Clean Energy Application Centers across the U.S. promote CHP, waste heat recovery and other clean energy technologies and practices. They provide regional assistance for specific projects, including market assessments, targeted education and outreach, and technical assistance.
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 Vermont.
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.
