DOE's Better Plants fall 2016 progress update
The industrial sector accounts for more than 30% of all U.S. energy consumption, resulting in an annual energy bill of about $200 billion, but there are significant energy-efficiency opportunities for industry, which can lead to cost savings, reduced carbon emissions and improved global competitiveness, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
This fall 2016 progress report details recent moves toward those opportunities from a growing number of members organizations — including big corporations like 3M, Celanese International Corp., General Mills, General Motors and Procter and Gamble — with the DOE's Better Plants program.
Adding 30 new members in 2016, the Better Plants partners now represent more than 11% of the manufacturing sector's total energy footprint, with more 2,500 facilities across the United States. So far, partners have reported cumulative energy savings of 600 trillion BTUs, and nearly 35 million metric tons of avoided climate-changing carbon emissions.
