Georgia is a leader in the smart energy economy, and the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) is providing innovations to support the state’s technology and manufacturing businesses. Smart energy businesses create over a $2 billion economic impact, and this sector is one of the fastest growing in the state. Collaborative partners include Georgia Tech Venture Lab, the Georgia Department of Economic Development, and the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG). In Georgia, energy and water are drivers of economic growth. GTRI is integrating water conservation and sensing technologies with smart energy systems to support Georgia agribusinesses and Department of Defense sites in Georgia. Concept designs are produced in the GTRI and Georgia Tech laboratories, modeled, and tested on campus and in the field.
Georgia’s Environmental Compliance Assistance Program (GECAP) provides free technical assistance to Georgia’s small and mid-sized industries in areas such as hazardous waste management, storm water permitting, GIS mapping, oil storage, emergency planning and community right to know (EPCRA), universal waste, biomedical waste, industrial wastewater and air permitting.
