CESMII: Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute

EarthShift Global is proud to announce it has joined the Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII). CESMII supports energy reductions facilitated by smart manufacturing. Manufacturing accounts for 20-30% of all energy use in the US. Since energy use is directly tied to manufacturing costs, greenhouse gas and other emissions, reducing energy use through smart manufacturing benefits the manufacturing site, the local community and the global community. We’re happy to be a part of such a win-win-win organization.
