As part of the American Energy and Manufacturing Competitiveness (AEMC) Partnership, the Council of Competitiveness and the Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) will co-host the 2015 AEMC Summit. The summit is an annual gathering of preeminent leaders from industry, government, academia, labor, and the national laboratories to address critical national imperatives in manufacturing and energy. AeroValve’s collaborative research grant with Oak Ridge National Lab was recognized as best practice industry partnership to facilitate commercialization of novel energy efficient technology. The 2015 AEMC Summit is one of several activities launched through the Department of Energy’s Clean Energy Manufacturing Initiative (CEMI) to achieve the dual goals of: 1. Increasing U.S. competitiveness in the production of clean energy products by strategically investing in technologies that leverage American competitive advantages and overcome competitive disadvantages. 2. Increasing U.S. manufacturing competitiveness across the board by increasing energy productivity through strategic investment in technologies and practices to enable U.S. manufacturers to increase their competitiveness through energy efficiency, combined heat and power, and taking advantage of low-cost domestic energy sources.
