In California, there are four U.S. Department of Energy (DoE)-funded Industrial Assessment Centers (IACs) that offer no-cost energy assessments to small and medium-sized manufacturers (SMMs) – during these assessments, IACs typically identify up to 10-20% in energy and productivity savings. To further support SMMs, the DoE is currently offering the Implementation Grant Program which provides SMMs with funding of up to $300,000 with a 50% cost share for implementation of energy-efficient equipment based on recommendations made in IAC assessments.
