Technical Reports and Analyses
The Save Energy Now State and Regional Partnerships subprogram has developed a set of analytical reports that offer information on industrial energy efficiency savings opportunities, state policies, and other topics that can help partners to the Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) launch successful programs.

The energy efficiency as a resource regional reports examine the energy intensities for manufacturing industries throughout the United States. The reports estimate the possible savings that each region could achieve if a number of regionally important industries operated at an energy efficiency level equal to the national average. Each report focuses on one of four U.S. Census Bureau regions:
- Overview of Reports, Dec. 2009
- Midwest Region, Dec. 2009
- Northeast Region, Dec. 2009
- South Region, Dec. 2009
- West Region, Dec. 2009
AMO is launching a series of informational reports and fact sheets on state policies that have the potential to impact industrial energy efficiency. These reports offer information on the structure of these policies, which states currently employ them, and what their impacts have been:
State Public Benefit Funds: Thirty states and the District of Columbia currently have some form of a public benefit fund in place. Learn more about how these policies are created and what kind of programs they support.
State Energy Efficiency Tax Incentives for Industry: This report identifies states that offer tax incentives that can be used specifically for industrial energy efficiency projects; and discusses the cooresponding industrial energy intensity of those states.
State Energy Efficiency Resource Standards Report: Twenty-four states have an Energy Efficiency Resource Standard in place. Learn more about how these policies are driving end-user energy savings.
Natural Gas Revenue Decoupling Report: Revenue decoupling is a type of rate design that Public Utility Commissions (PUCs) use to delink a utility's revenues from the volume of gas distributed. The effect of this decoupling can be to remove barriers to incentivize greater energy efficiency.
