The US Department of Energy established a cooperative program to assist industrial companies in adopting energy efficiency in 2009.  The current program, the Ohio Center for Industrial Energy Efficiency (OCIEE), is managed by Lawrence Boyd and Associates under a grant from the Ohio Development Services Agency, with the charge to: 

  • Continue to operate the “Ohio Center for Industrial Energy Efficiency” to serve as a focal point for industrially directed energy efficiency activities
  • Deliver the energy efficiency products and services developed by DOE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) and others to Ohio manufacturers in a cost effective manner;
  • Integrate DOE products and Services into Ohio’s program for industrial energy efficiency as the basis for a continuing statewide effort.
