The U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy service rolled out three case studies identifying how, and how much, three manufacturing facilities have benefited from the the Save Energy Now initiative.
Since the program began, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Industrial Technologies Program (ITP) has helped U.S. manufacturing plants identify potential savings of more than $807 million in energy costs and 77.1 trillion Btu of natural gas -- the amount consumed by more than 1 million single-family homes.
The goal of Save Energy Now is to drive a 25% reduction in U.S. industrial energy intensity by 2017.
According to the DOE, these three companies are saving a combined total of $1.5 million per year.
