Engineering Outreach's Economy, Energy, Environment Program (E3) program provides on-site environmental and energy-efficiency assessments for businesses within the Food and Beverage Manufacturing and Processing and Metal Manufacturing and Fabrication sectors.  E3 is focused on reducing environmental and energy use and related costs, as well as promoting the installation of renewable energy sources, where applicable. 

E3 connects agencies and organizations in local communities and small and medium-sized manufacturers with experts from federal agencies, states, and regions to:

  • help reduce energy consumption

  • minimize carbon footprints

  • prevent pollution

  • increase productivity

  • drive innovation

When manufacturers, communities, and utilities collaborate, the benefits reach far beyond manufacturers’ production lines.
