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 District of Columbia's active and complete partner projects:
Gas Imaging for Advanced Leak Detection, American Petroleum Institute
Industry: Petroleum Refining
Magnetic Gate System for Molten Metal Flow Control, American Iron and Steel Institute
Steel Foam Materials and Structures, American Iron and Steel Institute

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 District of Columbia:

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 District of Columbia for the past two years. A complete collection of all the publicly available assessment and recommendation data is available at the AMO IAC database.

Events and Trainings
The Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) offers system-wide and component-specific training sessions and materials to help reduce energy use, save money, and minimize waste through system optimization. The following is a list of District of Columbia's past training events:
- Denotes Events on map above
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.
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 District of Columbia.
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.
