Industrial Energy Efficiency Program

The Alabama Industrial Energy Efficiency Program promotes energy efficiency opportunities to small and medium sized manufacturers to improve their profitability by reducing their energy costs. ADECA partners with the U. S. Department of Energy's Advanced Manufacturing Office and universities to provide resources to increase energy efficiency for Alabama industries. The program also provides education and training on the use of alternative energy sources and lean productivity processes in manufacturing.

The following resources are available to Alabama industries:

 

University of Alabama Industrial Assessment Center (AIAC)

The University of Alabama is home to one of 26 Industrial Assessment Centers sponsored by the U.S. Energy Department. Their mission is to assist small to medium sized manufacturing industries in Alabama with energy conservation, waste reduction and productivity increases.

In 2010, six Alabama companies that worked with the center were recognized for their reduced energy usage.

Alabama E3: Economy, Energy and Environment

The Alabama E3 initiative helps manufacturers increase performance by reducing energy intensity and environmental wastes, improves profitability, saves jobs and expands employment in Alabama industry.  The Alabama E3 initiative began by focusing on the automotive industry but recently received funding to expand into other industries across the state. 

E3 is a joint initiative among five federal agencies (Department of Commerce, Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Labor and Small Business Administration) and numerous state agencies, utilities and others.

The following PDF documents provide more details about the program:

Alabama E3 Fact Sheet

Tax Incentives

For businesses, here is a PDF of Act # 2009-722 - the Investment Tax Credit for Energy Efficient Measures. The act extends the capital credit expansion program to 30 years, includes new or expanding corporate headquarters, data processing centers, research and development facilities and producers or power and gas from biomass, biofuel, and alternate and renewable energy sources as categories of industry eligible for existing tax incentives.

 

Alabama SAVES

The AlabamaSAVES program is the first and only energy-related revolving loan program for existing industries. Funding for the program is provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The program provides financing solutions for commercial and industry energy-efficiency and renewable energy projects in the state. It is administered by Abundant Power Solutions, LLC.
