This dialogue meeting will bring together state regulators, industrial users, utilities and other stakeholders with a goal of developing and implementing state best practice policies and investment models that address the multiple barriers to greater investment in industrial energy efficiency (IEE) and combined heat and power (CHP).
The industrial sector accounts for over 30 percent of all energy consumed in the United States, and for many manufacturers, energy costs affect overall competitiveness.
While our manufacturing facilities have made progress at becoming more energy efficient over the past several decades, there is an opportunity to accelerate and expand this improvement with investments to reduce energy use through more efficient manufacturing processes and facilities and the expanded use of CHP.
Accelerating these investments in our nation’s factories can improve the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturing, lower energy costs, free up future capital for businesses to invest, reduce air pollution and create jobs.
