Wisconsin manufacturer Oshkosh cuts energy use 10% in 2015, receives state recognition

Wisconsin-based manufacturing company Oshkosh Corp. was recently recognized by the state's utilities as a corporate leader in energy efficiency. 

Oshkosh, which designs, manufacturers and markets of a range of access equipment, commercial, fire & emergency, military and specialty vehicles and vehicle bodies, was one of 14 state corporations to receive an "Excellence in Energy Efficiency" award from a statewide energy efficiency and renewable resource program funded by Wisconsin's electric utilities. 

Oshkosh said in a news release that it was chosen for the award primarily for: participating in strategic energy management; devoting personnel and resources to energy reduction and sustainability affairs; communicating with team members about sustainability applications for at home and at work and lastly; and implementing several energy savings projects. The company also noted its future vision and initiatives around sustainability and energy savings.

Efforts within the energy team at Oshkosh's Defense segment, which supplies military vehicles, led to annual cost savings of more than $500,000 in 2015, according to its most recent sustainability report. The company, which is also a member of the U.S. Department of Energy's Better Plants program, reported a 2015 reduction of 7% in normalized energy use across the 21 manufacturing plants included in that program.
