The Ohio Office of Energy and the US Department of Energy established a cooperative program to assist industrial companies in adopting energy efficiency within their facilities. Energy Industries of Ohio was selected as the Program Manager with the charge to:

  • Establish the “Ohio Center for Industrial Energy Efficiency” to serve as a focal point for industrially directed energy efficiency activities;
  • Establishing the infrastructure to deliver the energy efficiency products and services developed by DOE’s Industrial Technology Program (ITP) in a cost effective manner in Ohio, initially, and in surrounding areas over the longer term;
  • Integrating DOE products and Services into Ohio’s program for industrial energy efficiency assistance in order to establish the basis for a continuing effort beyond the grant period.
