Focus on Industrial and Process Efficiency (IPE Focus) is New York State's new business-focused initiative to enable customers in the manufacturing and data center sectors maximize their return on investment for investing in energy efficiency and productivity. IPE's goal is to help customers develop and implement continuous improvements in order to lower energy costs and become more competitive in the marketplace.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) engaged the services of three contractors CHA, ERS and Willdan Energy Solutions as its IPE Outreach contractors. The IPE Focus team is dedicated to working with data centers and manufacturers, engineers and consultants, vendors and value added resellers to educate the community about the program, its benefits, and requirements for participation.
The IPE Outreach contractors will explain available incentives and the application process, identify cost-effective energy savings options, and support project development and implementation.
