Do you have observations about the efficiency of industrial systems,
questions about the research being done in partnership with the Office of
Industrial Technologies, or opinions about the innovative energy technologies
that are coming to market?
If so, wee started a new OIT Web site feature that will be of particular
interest to you. The OIT Forum now hosts energy experts, selected from academia
and industry, who are available to discuss topics related to industrial energy
efficiency. We invite you to post your questions to the Forum. Our energy
experts will respond to your queries on line. In addition, we invite you to add
