This paper reports the current developments and implementations on energy efficiency and assessment studies in an engineering technology program. The developments are basically in two categories: 1) Web-based teaching modules of Renewable Energy Education have been developed through a funded research project. Instructional Materials, Laboratory Practices and Assessment Exercises have been posted to iLearn (which a Desire2Learn system) and Canvas (which is an Instructure system). Developed materials have been tested by undergraduate engineering technology and graduate electrical engineering students. 2) Energy efficiency is an important component in manufacturing plants and there is an ongoing research on finding alternative ways to save energy in manufacturing processes and operations. Through a funded research project, a knowledge based catalog system has been developed. This catalog consists of the knowledge blocks collected from the Industrial Assessment Centers of the Department of Energy. The catalog has been tested with real industrial inputs and knowledge elements. This current paper will clarify the current progress in these projects.
