On December 14, 2016, the Department of Energy (DOE) announced that Clemson University has been selected as one of 28 higher education institutions to receive funding to establish a regional Industrial Assessment Center (IAC). According to the DOE announcement, this center will provide onsite assessments at small- and medium-sized manufacturers. After the visit, site-specific recommendations will be provided with opportunities to improve productivity, secure information, reduce waste, and lower energy costs while providing training for undergraduate and graduate engineering students. We encourage South Carolina manufacturers to take advantage of this service.
More information on IACs can be found on the DOE website.
