The Department of Energy has aearded the Univeisty of Wisconsin – Milwaukee $1.5 million to re-establish an “industrial assessment center” program to train engineeringstudents in energy management concepts. The program’s faculty and students will also consult with small and mid-sized manufaccturing companies.
“This industrial-efficiency training program opens the door to good jobs in a growing, global sector for thousands of energy-savvy students while promoting real, boots-on-the-ground progress toward our transition to a clean energy economy,” said Energy Secretary Steven Chu in a statement. “The centers will provide a boost to the next generation of American workers as well as to the businesses with which they work.”
The Bottom Line:
As mentioned by Chris Juan ” Companies can expect to see bottom-line savings of $40,000 to $50,000 per year.”
