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 Washington:

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 Washington.

State Incentive Handbooks
AMO has created handbooks of available resources and incentives for industrial energy efficiency implementation organized by system for each of the 50 states.

Resource Fact Sheets
AMO developed 50 resource fact sheets that identify local, regional, state, and utility organizations in each state that can serve as partners working together with manufacturers to advance industrial energy efficiency.
