Commercial building owners benefit from energy efficiency improvement, especially when energy costs are rising. Efficiency projects reduce costs and preserves the environment. The Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) at IUPUI is a program funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) to provide energy assessments for qualified buildings free of charge. For each audit, our audit team, led by a certified auditor, will identify opportunities to make your building more energy efficient, which will be detailed in a comprehensive report. The report will explain the energy saving recommendations, provide utility benchmark and baseline analytics, estimate implementation costs and payback times. It can serve as the baseline for future improvement projects. This process is confidential. The savings directly add to the company profit. The decision for implementation is yours. There is no obligation. For more information, please go to our website, https://iac.iupui.edu, for details. The website demonstrates the current practice for manufacturing companies. We have completed energy audits for 168 Indiana Manufacturing companies. We will update the website with information on commercial building assessments.

If you are interested in receiving this free energy audit by our IAC, please fill out the form under “Apply: Assessment Application” in our website, for a qualification check. Once qualified, we will contact you and schedule the energy audit. Please contact us if you have more questions.
