Implementation of Ohio's Industries of the Future
Funding Agency: U.S. DOE via Ohio Office of Energy
Ohio enjoys having each of the 9 U.S. DOE designated energy
intensive industries called "Industries of the Future"
within the state. These 9 industries utilize almost 2/3rds
of all industrial energy which comprises 38% of the total
domestic energy consumed. Ohio is ranked first nationally
for 3 of these industries (steel, metalcasting and glass)
and in the top 10 for the remaining. EIO is charged with
communicating the program to these industries, coordinating
technology development activities between the state, its
universities, national laboratories and industries for
developing needed technologies.
