DOE Offers $1 Million to Help Industries Save Energy

DOE announced in mid-February that $1 million in new funds are available to help industrial plants find ways to save energy. The new solicitation offers up to $100,000 per facility to carry out a "Plant-Wide Assessment" to examine energy-intensive processes, determine which plant systems offer the greatest energy savings potential, and identify specific actions to achieve those savings. Proposals are due by May 3rd. See the solicitation and the Plant-Wide Assessment Web page on DOE's Industrial Technologies Program Web site.
