On July 26, 2021, the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy announced $60 million for 32 higher education institutions located in 28 states across the country to set up and operate regional Industrial Assessment Centers (IAC). The centers will provide site-specific recommendations to small manufacturers with opportunities to improve productivity, secure information, reduce waste and save energy while providing training for undergraduate and graduate engineering students in manufacturing processes, energy assessment procedures, and energy management systems.
