WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced the availability of more than $30 million to train engineering students in energy efficiency, helping them become the next industrial energy efficiency experts. Through the Industrial Assessment Center program, university teams across the country will gain practical training that will enable them to conduct energy assessments in a broad range of manufacturing facilities. These participants will help local companies and factories reduce energy waste, save money, and become more economically competitive.

Under this funding opportunity, each industrial assessment center will be expected to train at least 10 to 15 students per year, conduct approximately 20 energy assessments annually, and perform follow-up reporting, tracking, implementation, and management-improvement activities. DOE will select 20 to 30 universities as industrial assessment centers that will be eligible to receive $200,000 to $300,000 per year for up to five years for the training and energy assessments. Applications are due by Aug. 2.

More information and application requirements are available at the FedConnect website at https://www.fedconnect.net/FedConnect/?doc=DE-FOA-0000490&agency=DOE.
