US Department of Energy's Industrial Assessment Center at SDSU

SDSU Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) is a program funded by the US Department of Energy with a primary goal of 1) training the next generation of energy engineers by providing hands-on experience to undergraduate and graduate students, and 2) promoting energy efficiency through service to small and medium sized manufacturing plants as well as other buildings with extensive energy use. The combined impact of these goals is expected to help reduce the country’s energy dependency, promote clean environment by reducing emissions, create clean jobs, and enhance the competitiveness of US industry in the global marketplace.

Feasibility studies are offered by SDSU IAC to qualified plants to significantly improve their energy efficiency and promote renewable energy. These measures would result in energy savings, cost reduction, and leveling of utility peaking.

The IAC program has established a record of quality service that has cost-effectively improved the energy efficiency and performance of over 4000 manufacturing plants nationwide. The operational goal of the SDSU IAC is to provide both on-site and follow-up services in a timely and thorough manner that reflects the overall IAC record for quality and cost-effectiveness.
