The EWI Energy Center was created to increase U.S. independence, security, and competitiveness through energy-smart manufacturing.

  • Reduce energy consumption, cost, and waste in manufacturing systems.
  • Evolve manufacturing systems to use renewable, cost-effective energy sources.
  • Help manufacturers to design and produce energy-wise, customer-centric products.
  • Support the development of self-reliant energy production.

The Vision:

  • Improve manufacturing competitiveness through cost reductions, reduced carbon emissions, increased quality, sustainability, and shortened innovation cycles.
  • Increase clients’ competitive advantage in existing markets and facilitate entry into new markets.
  • Facilitate an “innovative, energy-smart” mindset to increase manufacturing resilience.
  • Become a national resource for manufacturing energy-forward products and systems using solid public/private collaborations.

Key functions include delivering manufacturing readiness services to energy manufacturers.

  • Solving manufacturing and commercialization challenges to accelerate technology advancement from prototype to commercialization.
  • Linking industry needs with workforce development strategies.
  • Developing and supporting advanced energy supply chains and cluster development.
