The Energy Efficiency Program for Manufacturers is a multi-phase energy efficiency program that helps Ohio manufacturers to reduce their costs through facilitation services and financial assistance that diagnose, plan, and implement cost-effective energy improvements at their facilities. Funding is made available through the U.S. Department of Energy's State Energy Program and Ohio's Advanced Energy Fund. The program is designed in four phases:
  • Phase I is the identification of energy cost savings through a facilitated process which company management examine how they think about energy within their business systems.
  • Phase II is the development of an energy plan that combines changes in business process methodologies with the identification of cost-effective measures through the completion of a technical energy audit of the company's facilities.
  • Phase III is the installation of the energy cost savings measures and many companies are eligible for financing through Office of Energy to implement these measures.
  • Phase IV is measurement and verification of the energy cost savings measures.
