You are here

It's a New Year! Have you thought about how you might...

  • reduce the energy intensity of your manufacturing supply chain?
  • cut back on water use?
  • move your energy management from basic operations into a C-suite strategy?

On January 22 the Better Buildings, Better Plants Program will host a webinar presentation on some exciting new initiatives and notable energy-saving accomplishments. Webinar topics include:

  • Reducing energy intensity in manufacturing supply chains – DOE is working with select Better Plants Partners to deliver technical assistance and improve energy management within their supply chains

  • Cutting back on industrial water use – Through the Better Plants Challenge, seven manufacturers have set water reduction targets and agreed to share industry-leading best practices with the public

  • Water and wastewater sector outreach – DOE is expanding the Better Plants Program to partner with water and wastewater treatment plants, which face unique challenges in managing energy use within their facilities

  • Expanded In-Plant Training opportunities – New training topics will be explored in 2015, including a special focus on strategic energy management; DOE has already trained over 750 participants and helped identify more than 2.5 trillion Btus in energy savings and $14 million in cost savings through these events.

Better Plants Partners have saved about 320 trillion British thermal units and almost $1.7 billion cumulatively in energy costs as of October 2014.
