ECE leads Industrial Assessment Center at UD

The IAC is charged with the assessment and improvement of energy efficiency of small to medium sized businesses in the Mid-Atlantic region.  Keith Goossen in ECE will lead the center as Principle Investigator.  The overall size of the IAC program is anticipated to be $6 million over the next two years.  "Energy efficiency must be considered as a vital component of an overall energy preparedness program," according to Dr. Goossen.  "While our vigorous programs in renewables are acting toward the goal of energy independence for our nation, advances in efficiency, from both engineering and operational perspectives, are crucial to achieving this as well."  The IAC program is intended to train young engineers to better understand how the role of energy efficiency and renewable energy can play in manufacturing and industrial processes.  Participating students gain practical experience and hands-on training in energy engineering.
