According to the Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA), the Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) at the U.S. Dept. of Energy recently released an update to the State Incentives & Resource Database which provides access to nearly 4,800 energy incentive programs searchable by location (region, state, city, or zip code).

These incentive programs are offered by federal and state governments, regional and nonprofit organizations, and utilities to help manufacturers identify and implement energy-saving projects. Users can search for rebates, grants, loans, training opportunities, and other tools by, program sponsor, resource, industrial system, or energy type.

The State Incentives and Resource Database can help commercial and industrial managers seeking to make energy efficiency upgrades in their facilities find the financial and technical incentives, tools, and resources they need. The AMO also has a searchable library of case studies describing energy savings achieved by large manufacturing companies using AMO’s software tools and information resources.
