Who We Are

The Nebraska MEP is part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) program. Residing within the U.S. Department of Commerce, MEP was created in 1988 with the intent of enhancing the productivity and technological performance of U.S. manufacturers. Today, the MEP program consists of 60 centers in every state and Puerto Rico with over 400 service locations and 1,300 technical experts working together to advance and strengthen U.S. manufacturing.

In The News:

USDA Annouces Grant to Help Farms and Rural Small Businesses Protect the Environment with Clean Energy. 

Through this project, Nebraska MEP has established an energy auditing program to assist agricultural producers and rural small businesses with evaluating the energy efficiency of their operations and the potential for incorporating renewable energy technology into their operations. With Nebraska MEP’s connections to Nebraska’s manufacturing sector, industrial and/or business audits are expected to comprise the largest percentage of completed audits.
