Note: The Ohio Advanced Energy Fund (AEF) expired as of December 31, 2010. With its expiration, the AEF, which is a public benefit fund, is no longer collecting money and thus unable to financially support ODOD programs. For any questions on the Advanced Energy Fund, please contact the Ohio Energy Resources Division directly using the contact information below. This information is for historical purposes only.

The Ohio Energy Resources Division, which resides within the Ohio Department of Development (ODOD), is offering phase III grants for the multi-phase energy efficiency program for manufacturers. Eligibility is contingent upon successful completion of phases I and II. Additionally, projects must be installed in Ohio and in the service territory of one of the state's four investor-owned utilities: American Electric Power, Dayton Power and Light, Duke Energy (formerly CINergy) or FirstEnergy.

Energy Efficiency Program for Manufacturers (NOFA 10-03) These grants will provide funding for 50% of a project's cost, with a maximum grant award of $250,000 per entity. Applicants are encouraged to finance the balance of the project cost utilizing an Advanced Energy Fund (AEF)-linked deposit. The maximum Advanced Energy Fund (AEF)-linked deposit is $500,000.

All project components must be new, and energy efficiency must be demonstrated. A minimum of 15% energy-use reduction from existing conditions is required. New construction projects must show (by theoretical model) a 15% reduction in energy use from the standard code requirement. In general, projects that involve lighting technologies, HVAC technologies, refrigeration, motors (including combined heat and power), and building envelopes are eligible for funding.
