ITP and Industrial Stakeholders Address Strategies to Improve Energy, Reduce Climate Impacts
October 17, 2007
DOE’s Industrial Technologies Program (ITP) hosted more than 140 industry leaders on October 16, 2007, in Arlington, VA, at the 2007 Stakeholders Forum, to discuss ITP strategies and activities in technology research, development, deployment, and delivery. Representatives from the nation’s manufacturing sector, along with state and trade organizations and the academic community, gathered to provide their unique insights and ideas that can help ITP refine strategies and plan new activities for reducing industrial energy intensity and carbon emissions.
Working towards the EPAct goal to reduce industrial energy 25% by 2017, ITP invited stakeholders to explore opportunities to improve industrial efficiency, while keeping the nation’s industries productive and competitive. Participants took part in topical discussions, sharing their ideas on energy savings priorities and ways that ITP can support their efforts to meet technical and competitive challenges, and in turn, pave the way for progress toward the EPAct goal.
The stakeholders learned about current ITP activities and successes, including the Save Energy Now initiative, which is helping hundreds of U.S. plants find ways to cut energy costs; and details on more than two dozen ITP cost-shared technologies that have received R&D 100 awards over the past seven years. ITP plans to build on these successes and gain momentum in helping the industrial sector—and the nation—save more energy and mitigate urgent climate issues.
