Sandy Glatt IAC Annual Lead Student Mtg. February 17, 2005
IAC Program Description IACs is a sub-program under the ITP Technology Delivery Area, in DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy IAC Program goals are: (1) to save energy, reduce waste and improve productivity of small- and medium-sized industrial manufacturers in the US; and (2) to train the “next generation” of energy-savvy engineers. The Program serves small- and medium-sized manufacturers through a network of 26 Industrial Assessment Centers (IACs) located at universities nationwide. These IACs also train engineering students – the “next generation” of energy professionals.
By 2020, 30% decrease in energy intensity of IOF manufacturing Overall Goal of the Program By 2010—Commercialize 10 Technologies
ITP Program Structure Industrial Technologies Technology Delivery Assessments, BestPractices Advanced Process Systems Chemical and Enabling Technologies Metals & Mining Mining, Steel, Metal Casting, Aluminum Materials, Sensors, & Automation Glass, Materials, Sensors Chemical & Allied Processes Chemicals, Forest Products Industrial Energy Systems Combustion, Supporting Industries, Tool Development Portfolio & Financial Mgmt. Golden Field Office, Regional Offices, NETL
Technology Delivery - Mission Develop, implement, and disseminate best practices in energy management Realize the best energy efficiency and pollution prevention options from a system and life-cycle perspective Encourage corporate energy management strategies Validate and disseminate emerging technologies
Industrial Assessment Centers - Background Activity initiated in 1976 Centers are located at accredited engineering schools Assessments are performed by teams made up of faculty and students Assessments usually entail a one-day site visit Assessments take an integrated approach that considers energy, waste, and productivity
IAC Program Metrics Traditional program metrics include assessment days performed and students trained –685 Assessment Days Performed –150 students trained –Recommended and Implemented Energy Savings in both btu’s and dollars –Alumni impacts –Website impacts, including IAC database
IAC Program Priorities Not uncommon for priorities to rearrange budget cycle to budget cycle – politically motivated –Emphasize energy savings –Emphasize productivity –Emphasize student training and utilization
This Year’s Priorities Emphasize student training and utilization –Become more prescriptive about “type” and number of students at each Center –Look more at external training, especially the ITP BestPractice system tools and software –Identify other opportunities –“Formalize” student credentials – certificate program – previously was for students not for DOE, thinking otherwise now?
