The mission of our center is:
- To offer free and comprehensive audit and consulting services to small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) for saving energy, reducing water usage, minimizing industrial waste, strengthening cyber security, reducing carbon footprint, adopting renewable energy, and improving productivity;
- To train students in improving industrial energy efficiency through hands-on, real-world experience by conducting student team assessments of SMEs; and
- To provide outreach and education opportunities to nonparticipating SMEs. The proposed IAC will focus its service on the dense Southern New England/Southern NY (sNE/sNY) regions, including Connecticut, Rhode Island, Long Island, New York City, and southeastern New York, and can serve a 150-mile radius from both sites.
