Save Energy Now Utility Partnerships
In order to reduce industrial energy intensity and use, the Industrial Technologies Program (ITP) is forming partnerships with states, utilities, vendors, suppliers, trade associations and other stakeholders. The partnerships serve to increase ITP's reach to industry and drive energy efficiency investments throughout the industrial sector. The ITP Partnerships Fact Sheet (July 2011) summarizes activities that are currently being undertaken in order to build a supportive market environment and establish lasting local infrastructure for continuous energy improvement.
With highly volatile energy prices, utility companies and their customers find themselves in an uncertain business climate. ITP provides a variety of tools and resources that utilities can use to expand energy efficiency and energy services offerings to their industrial customers. These tools and resources are to be used by utilities to expand energy efficiency and energy services offerings to their industrial customers. ITP offers many of these tools and resources free of charge. ITP needs the help of local utilities to encourage industrial energy conservation projects in order to enhance national energy savings. DOE has spent decades researching, developing, and deploying energy efficiency technologies and information resources. This site helps bring these experiences and discoveries to utilities and their industrial customers.
Please take a look at the ITP Utility Partnerships Activities Brochure ITP Utilities Partnerships Activities Brochure for a quick summary of ITP's Utility Partnerships.
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Funding for Industry in the States
DOE funds $3.1 Billion for State Energy Programs through ARRA. Several states have proposed statewide plans that prioritize energy savings, create or retain jobs, increase the use of renewable energy, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the industrial sector. Learn more about State Energy Program funds for industry by visiting the SEN State Partnerships Solicitations page.
State & Local Energy Efficiency Action Network (SEE Action)
DOE has partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on the State & Local Energy Efficiency Action Network (SEE Action), a state and local effort facilitated by the federal government that helps states, utilities, and other local stakeholders take energy efficiency to scale and achieve all cost-effective energy efficiency by 2020.
