U.S. Launches Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Initiative to Further Decarbonize Manufacturing
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced the allocation of $7 million in funding from the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to expand the Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) program — a cohort of colleges and universities across the country that help small- and medium-sized manufacturers save energy, improve productivity, and reduce waste by providing no-cost technical assessments. This latest investment in the IAC program will provide training opportunities for the next generation of energy-efficiency workers, help remove barriers to decarbonization across the manufacturing sector and advance the Biden Administration’s goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
“Talented students at America’s schools and universities are showing the manufacturing sector how to save money and cut back on carbon pollution,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. “The President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is expanding our ability to train the next generation of clean energy engineers and apply their innovations to help small- and medium-sized businesses decarbonize and accelerate America’s transition to a carbon-free future by 2050.”
