Manufacturers often rely on energy-intensive technologies and processes. AMO conducts a range of analyses to explore energy use and trends by sector.
ENERGY DATA AND INFORMATION
Starting in 2013, AMO developed and refined a consistent methodology for bandwidth studies such that comparisons could be made across the manufacturing sector. Energy Bandwidth Studies analyze energy use and the potential for energy savings in various processes for selected manufacturing sectors. The studies estimate potential energy savings by calculating differences among the typical energy consumption levels for a specific process and lower consumption levels based on the use of state of the art technology and technology currently under research and development. Bandwidth studies are available for the following sectors:
- Advanced High-Strength Steel (AHSS)
- Carbon Fiber
- Food and Beverage
- Glass Fiber
- Iron & Steel
- Petroleum Refining
- Plastics and Rubber
- Pulp & Paper
- Seawater Desalination
