June 9, 2004
The BestPractices Corporate Energy Management Case Study, Alcoa Teams with the DOE to Reduce Energy Consumption (PDF 524 KB), is now available on the BestPractices Case Studies Page. Alcoa began working with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in 1999 to identify opportunities for reducing energy consumption at its aluminum processing facilities. By performing plant-wide energy assessments, conducting employee training, and using DOE software tools and technical resources, Alcoa has successfully identified more than $60 million in savings opportunities, and has reduced its operating costs by more than $15 million.
