The inaugural issue of Plant Profiles published by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Industrial Technologies (OIT) features "forward-thinking companies" which have cuts costs, increased productivity, and improved their overall competitiveness by applying energy-and process-efficient technologies. Significant achievements include a collective $51.6 million savings in energy costs, 25.5 trillion Btu energy savings (equivalent to the energy consumption of about 255,000 typical homes) and more than 100,000 tons annual reduction of CO2 emissions.
They got it done through a corporate level commitment to cut energy costs and reduce environmental impact, by creating dedicated energy teams, and by partnering with OIT. OIT offers industry easy access to near- and long-term solutions to improve performance of industrial systems such as motors, steam, compressed air and process heating. Among the many tools OIT offers are best-energy practices to help industries start saving energy, reduce costs, and cut pollution right away.
