DOE partners with National Association of Manufacturers for industry energy efficiency

The Energy Department, through its Better Plants program, has teamed with the National Association of Manufacturers to form the Sustainability in Manufacturing partnership.

DOE said Tuesday the partnership aims to enhance energy productivity and efficiency in the manufacturing industry through research and development of systems and technologies and the expansion of partner accomplishments.

NAM and the department will engage manufacturers, identify energy efficiency opportunities and provide recognition for companies and executives that implement strategies for the advancement of enhanced energy use.

The Better Plants program is meant to help around 200 major manufacturers set energy efficiency goals and exchange approaches to reduce power consumption.

DOE detailed that the government annually spends more than $200 billion to provide the required power for the operations of manufacturing plants.

The department’s initiative is intended to support local economic competitiveness and generate jobs.
