The DoD MIIs and other institutes in the Manufacturing USA network are responding to the need for increased energy efficiency and reductions in carbon emissions by fostering projects that will lead to major reductions in manufacturing energy use and costs, and provide the basis for innovative new green products.
Given that future energy consumption is likely to increase, cost-effective power conversion in industrial applications will prove vital to save energy and lower expenses for industry, reduce emissions, industrial waste, materials and water usage, and improve the life cycle energy efficiency of manufactured goods.
