Energy Analysis by Sector
Manufacturers often rely on energy-intensive technologies and processes. AMO conducts a range of analyses to explore energy use and trends by sector.
U.S. manufacturing as a whole
Food and beverages
Iron and steel
Energy & Environmental Profiles describe selected U.S. industries in terms of their energy and material consumption, market trends, and environmental performance. These detailed reports benchmark the energy and environmental characteristics of the key technologies that are used in the major processes of each selected industry.
Bandwidth Studies analyze the energy use and potential for savings in various processes used by a particular industry. They estimate potential energy savings as the difference between the amount of energy typically consumed in a specific process using commercially available technology versus the minimum amount of energy conceptually needed to achieve those same results. Bandwidth studies are available for the following sectors:
