Large Plant Assessments (ESAs)

With emphasis on reducing natural gas consumption, DOE provides American businesses, factories, and manufacturing facilities with on-site Energy Savings Assessments (ESAs). The purpose of these assessments is to identify immediate opportunities to save energy and money that will lead to significant long-term savings. Gold and silver stars represent facilities that have been recognized for their achievements in industrial energy savings. The following is a list of businesses that have all benefited from AMO assessments in Connecticut:

Technical Resources

AMO provides information on upcoming energy efficiency events and trainings, case studies on replicable industrial energy efficiency projects, and contact information for Industrial Assessment Centers (IAC), Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) Centers, and Regional Clean Energy Application Centers.

Case Studies in Connecticut

Each year AMO develops new case studies on research, development and demonstration projects; energy assessments; the use of AMO tools and training; and leveraging of AMO partner resources for energy efficiency project implementation. The case studies are developed jointly with AMO's industrial partners. The following is a list of the case studies in Connecticut:

State Incentives and Resource Database

This database is a comprehensive collection of incentives and resources for implementing energy-efficiency measures in a commercial or industrial facility. These incentives are often financial and are in place to reward business and residential customers for making strides in energy efficiency. The resources are in the form of analysis tools, education and training programs, and energy audits. The following link will take you to a site that will show you the energy incentives and resources in Connecticut.

State Incentive Handbooks
