The Energy Industries of Ohio (EIO) seeks to identify industrially relevant technology development projects. The Main focus of EIO's projects are in the areas of energy production and the efficient use of energy by the major energy user industries.

EIO's Approach for insuring the rapid commercialization and transfer of new technologies is by forming technology development teams consisting of industrial partners complimenting other needed resources available from Ohio's Colleges, Universities, National Laboratories, State Programs and other sources.

Some of the firms and organizations with which EIO has worked or are included in active proposals include:

Governmental Partners

Industrial Partners 

Academic Partners

Trade and Technical Organizations
