DENSO to Improve Energy Efficiency at Michigan Plant

DENSO, a mobility supplier that develops advanced technology and components for vehicles, entered into a partnership to increase the sustainability of operations at its thermal manufacturing facility in Battle Creek, Michigan. 

Through the collaboration with Energy Systems Group (ESG), compressed air systems will be replaced and updated, increasing energy efficiency.

The updates are expected to be completed during the summer of 2024. The new systems will begin to help DENSO remove nearly 3,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually from the thermal facility's operations.

"Our commitment to being green doesn't only apply to our products. It also motivates us to continuously seek new ways to operate more sustainably and conserve more energy," said Todd Greer, a director of Facilities and Engineering Production at DENSO's Battle Creek thermal facility, in a statement. "We are grateful for ESG's support, as it will be crucial to our pursuit of Eco Vision 2025, DENSO's global initiative to halve energy use and double clean and green activities by next year."

In September 2023, DENSO announced it would invest $63 million in the Battle Creek thermal facility to retool production lines and accommodate products that support electrified vehicles.

Last April, the Battle Creek thermal facility, alongside other Michigan businesses, joined the Consumers Energy Business Renewable Energy Program. Enrolled businesses agree to match energy they use with wind and solar energy that Consumers Energy develops in Michigan, to increase the use of energy in the state.
