ENERGY STAR Tools for Industry
Apr 23 @ 2:00 pm EDT – 3:00 pm EDT

Improving plant energy performance with ENERGY STAR

Energy Star LogoFor over 15 years, the US EPA’s ENERGY STAR for Industry program has worked with manufacturing sectors and companies to develop effective energy management tools and resources that drive savings. The focus of these tools is helping companies build stronger energy programs that support strategic energy management initiatives and finding no and low cost savings opportunities.

Recently ENERGY STAR has been exploring new ways to engage small and medium sized manufactures through local and regional networks. Southside Plant Performance, which was held in Danville, VA, is one example of how ENERGY STAR worked with a group of local manufacturers. This initiative helped the participating companies quickly identify energy savings opportunities while laying the foundations for better energy management practices.

On this webinar, Walt Tunnessen, National Program Manager of the ENERGY STAR Industrial program, will discuss the results of the Southside Plant Performance project and how the Plant Performance with ENERGY STAR approach can be replicated.
