The Center of Innovation for Energy Technology provides the technical industry expertise, collaborative research and partnerships to help the state?s industry connect, compete and grow globally. Accelerating the development of new ideas, products and business models in the Energy Ecosystem, the Center is helping the state gain and maintain a leadership position in the fields of energy storage, waste-to-energy conversion, and alternatively powered vehicles.
Georgia?s Diverse Energy Industry
Georgia is home to an extremely diverse Energy Technology sector. Notables like GE Energy, Mitsubishi Turbines, EFACEC, Exide Technologies, and Suniva are just a few of the many energy technology companies that have operations in the state. This strong and diverse presence has led Metropolitan Atlanta to be named the most diverse metropolitan area, clean-economy in the nation and the 7th largest metro Clean-Tech economy in the nation boasting over 43,000 jobs.
One of the most promising renewable energy technologies, waste-to-energy conversion allows Georgia communities the ability to turn existing waste (consumer, agricultural, and industrial) into products that can be converted into the energy used for vehicle fuel, electricity, and numerous other items.
Alternatively Powered Vehicles
Many organizations, public and private, are working together to promote the infrastructure of electric vehicles and electric vehicle charging stations. The city of Atlanta and the State of Georgia rank among the top in electric vehicle adaptation. The state is committed to its effort of ensuring that Georgia is prepared to be a major hub for alternative powered vehicle manufacturing and usage and the Center is the leader in this effort.
