Energy Efficiency Center

The OSU Energy Efficiency Center Represents an effort to leverage 20+ years of OSU Industrial Assessment Center Experience to offer a greater range of services and serve a wider breadth of sectors. The center also stands on the shoulders of the now closed OSU Extension Energy Program.

Industrial Assessment Center

Industrial Assessment Centers [formerly called the Energy Analysis and Diagnostic Center (EADC) program] were created by the Office of Industrial Technology (OIT), a branch of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The Centers were created in 1976 to help small and medium-sized manufacturing facilities cut back on unnecessary costs from inefficient energy use, ineffective production procedures, excess waste production, and other production-related problems.

The average OSU IAC audit produces recommendations that can save the plant $183,000. Up to twenty-five assessments have been completed each year.

George "Greg" W. Wheeler has been the Director of the Oregon State University Center since its inception in 1987. Oregon State University's Industrial Assessment Center has performed audits throughout the Northwest including Oregon, Washington, Northern California, Idaho, Utah, Nevada and Alaska.
