U.S. Department of Energy - Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Federal Energy Management Program
DOE and Manufacturers Group to Boost Industrial Energy Efficiency
June 12, 2007
DOE signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the
National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) on June 12th in an effort to maximize
energy efficiency at industrial facilities. NAM represents 11,000
large and small manufacturers in every industrial sector, comprising
over 200,000 facilities throughout the United States. Under the MOU,
DOE and NAM will assist manufacturing facilities in implementing
energy management programs; adopting clean, efficient technologies;
and achieving continual energy efficiency improvements. DOE and NAM
have agreed to share their expertise and provide companies with
technical assistance, a Web-based catalog of tools and technologies,
and a roadmap for companies to implement an energy management program.
This MOU builds on the success of the 2006 Save Energy Now campaign,
in which energy experts identified nearly $500 million in potential
energy savings at 200 of the most energy-intensive manufacturing
plants in the United States. See the DOE press release,
the MOU (PDF 137 KB),
and the results
of the Save Energy Now industrial assessments.
