Leveraging the First Fuel

According to the International Energy Agency, ‘energy efficiency has graduated from the ‘hidden fuel’ to the ‘first fuel.’┬áIn line with that sort of progressive mindset, N.C. Clean Energy Technology Center has expanded their technical offerings to now include energy efficiency assistance.

NCCETC helps large industrial, institutional and commercial energy users to reach their energy-related goals. Whether your objectives are to achieve cost reductions, sustainability metrics or to improve resiliency, the Center provides experienced specialists and engineers to directly support energy challenges, experienced by organizations across the Southeast.
