POTSDAM -- Clarkson University will soon become a satellite of the Syracuse University Industrial Assessment Center to help businesses to be energy efficient, funded by an award from the U.S. Department of Energy,.

Syracuse University's Industrial Assessment Center program has received a renewal of its DOE grant to develop expertise in undergraduate- and graduate-level engineering students in manufacturing efficiency.

This center is being funded by the IAC Program under the U.S. Department of Energy Advanced Manufacturing Office. The center assists small and medium-sized manufacturers within New York State in evaluating their energy usage, manufacturing productivity, and waste generation, and in reducing associated costs.

The Syracuse IAC, now in its 11th year, has helped more than 200 New York manufacturers to reduce their energy usage and costs. The center also provides scholarships and stipends to support graduate and undergraduate students.

Three Clarkson University undergraduates are interns at the Syracuse IAC Satellite Center.
