President Obama visits Miami IAC Center
In February 2012, President Obama highlighted the Industrial Assessment Centers (IAC) as a smart and important piece of the administration's "all-of-the-above" approach to domestic energy sources.
President Obama said, "We're taking a step that will make it easier for companies to save money by investing in energy solutions that have been proven here at the University of Miami -- new lighting systems; advanced heating and cooling systems that can lower a company's energy bills and make them more competitive."
The 58 students (in BOLD) have also been awarded IAC student certificates for exceptional participation.
