Free Energy Assessments Offered to Small- and Medium-Sized Manufacturers
Georgia–North Florida Industrial Assessment Center (IAC)

What is It?

 

The Georgia-North Florida Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) is a team of university-based faculty and student engineers representing the Georgia Institute of Technology, Florida A&M University, and Florida State University. Small- and medium-sized manufacturers may be eligible to receive a no-cost energy assessment performed by personnel from one of the universities depending on the manufacturer’s geographical location. An energy assessment will identify opportunities to improve productivity, reduce waste, and save energy. A report detailing recommendations will be provided within two months followed by an implementation review within six months. IACs typically identify more than $47,000 in annual savings for each manufacturer.
