Clean energy is not a new concept, but the possibility of applying this concept to the U.S. manufacturing industry in broad manner has the capacity not only to rejuvenate the industry, but to increase competitiveness globally.
From finding new ways to repurpose wasted materials to choosing more conservative energy sources when possible, there are many ways manufacturers can use clean energy technologies to gain advantage by using the most current technologies and being aware of ways that productivity can be streamlined. The correct approach can result in substantial savings with respect to time, energy, and money.
The potential to implement clean energy technologies is something that crosses all spheres of manufacturing — and there are ways for every facet of industry to become involved. For not only does clean energy impact the bottom line for a manufacturing company through increased efficiency and lessened waste, it also supports a more competitive future for the U.S. manufacturing industry — and a more sustainable future for all.
In order to offer assistance to manufacturers interested in exploring innovative clean energy processes and technologies, NY MEP, a member of the MEP National Network, has teamed up with the Reducing Embodied-energy and Decreasing Emissions (REMADE) institute. The combined expertise of these two organizations offers small- to medium-sized companies opportunities for expert consultation regarding the implementation of clean energy initiatives.

New York Manufacturing Extension Partnership
The New York Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NY MEP) is a network of organizations that provide growth and innovation services to small- and medium-sized manufacturers to help them create and retain jobs, increase profits, and save time and money, as well as assist them in solving issues including productivity, research, and development. NY MEP is part of the MEP National Network and is dedicated to the growth of U.S. manufacturing.
Reducing Embodied-energy and Decreasing Emissions
Energy consumption and sustainability are on the forefront of most corporations, and the manufacturing industry accounts for 25 percent of U.S energy consumption. Through partnerships with industry, academic networks, and national research labs, the Reducing Embodied-energy and Decreasing Emissions (REMADE) institute is at the forefront of technology development designed to reduce emissions and energy associated with industrial-scale manufacturing. REMADE does this through focusing on education to eliminate both current and future barriers, in order to support the ecosystem unique to U.S. manufacturing.
