Improve the energy efficiency of U.S. industry through coordinated research and development, validation, and dissemination of innovative technologies and practices.
Technology for Today
Technology for the Future
Teams of engineering faculty and students from 26 university-based IACs around the country conduct no-cost, on-site industrial assessments at eligible facilities.
~240 students in training each year
Average 7-year savings per assessment: $74,000
Undergraduate Research • Partnership with Physical Plant • Energy Efficiency
Steam loss improved, condensate return was increased as a result of the program. Annual cost savings of approximately 10% were achieved.
Graduate Research • Partnership with Physical Plant • Energy Efficiency
If all buildings on campus were continuously commissioned, CEERE researchers estimate that Amherst campus could achieve savings of approximately $100 million in utility bills over the next 20 years.
Graduate Research • Partnership with Physical Plant • Combined Heat and Power (Co-Generation)
Energy Efficiency • Model Development • Performance Monitoring • Partnership with Physical Plant
