Title: Industrial Energy Efficiency:

Industrial Energy Efficiency
  • Technology Delivery
  • Thinking Globally, Saving Locally

David S. Godfrey Atlanta Regional Office Energy
Efficiency and Renewable Energy U.S. Department
of Energy Presentation to EPA Region IV P2
Conference Call September 1, 2004
BP Statistical Review of World Energy, 2004 The
Global Look
  • Oil for 40 years, w/ 77 in OPEC countries
  • Natural gas for 67 years, mostly from former
  • Coal for 192 years from N. Am, Europe, Asia and
  • World energy use up 2.9 in 2003 w/ 15 increase
    in Chinese coal use and doubling of oil use in
  • Wind capacity at 40,000 MW worldwide solar
    photo-voltaics up 10X in last 10 years
  • At current rate of production

Office of Industrial Technologies
Improve the energy intensity of U.S. industry
through coordinated research and development,
validation, and dissemination of energy
efficiency technologies practices.
  • Partner with industry and other stakeholders to
  • Increase energy savings
  • Reduce environmental impacts
  • Improve process yield/conserve resources
  • Reduce reliance on foreign oil
  • Increase use of renewable energy
  • Improve competitiveness and quality of life

Delivering Technology Solutions
Technology Delivery Saving Locally
  • Technical Assistance
  • Plant-wide Assessments
  • Industrial Assessment Centers
  • Software Tools
  • Training
  • Information (Case Studies, Tip Sheets, etc.)

Summary of Technology Delivery Activities
  • Plant-wide Assessments 32 representing Forest
    Products, Chemical, Petroleum and other
  • Attended Training more than 4,500 employees
  • Received Decision Tools Software CD 3150
  • Case Studies (at any stage of development) 85

Plant-wide Assessments
  • Cost-shared assessments identify opportunities
    for energy and cost savings
  • Up to 100,000 competitively awarded to plant
    through open solicitation process
  • Summary assessment reportpublished to
  • Proprietary Informationfully protected
  • Opportunity to promote findings and methodology

Plant-wide Assessments Examples
Annual Savings Opportunities Identified
  • Anchor Glass Container 1,638,000 Metlab
  • Utica Corporation 1,880,000
    Bayer 1,478,000
  • Equilon Enterprises 52,500,000
    Weyerhaeuser 3,100,000
  • Neville Chemical 287,000
    Corning 25,920,000
  • Appleton Paper 3,459,000 3M

    Grace 840,000
  • Alcoa 1,072,000
    Ford 3,280,000
  • Boise Cascade 707,000
    Inland 9,500,000
  • Caraustar 1,280,000
    Alcoa 1,974,000
  • Akzo Nobel 1,170,000
    AMCAST 3,600,000

Pursuing a Plant-wide Assessment
  • How can a company benefit fromplant-wide
  • Submit a proposal to next DOE solicitation (Mar.
    2004). Watch
  • Access case studies to learn about recommended
    strategies to boost energy efficiency.
  • Strengthen the corporate energy efficiency
    management team.

Next Plant Wide Assessment solicitation
expected Winter, 2005.
Industrial Assessment Centers (IACs)
Teams of engineering faculty and students from 26
university-based IACs around the country conduct
no-cost, on-site industrial assessments at
eligible facilities.
  • 240 students in training each year
  • Average 7-year savings per assessment 74,000

More than 12,000 assessments have been conducted
by IACs.
Industrial Assessment Centers
  • Qualification Criteria
  • Annual sales under 100 million
  • 500 or less employees at plant
  • No designated energy manager
  • Energy bill less than 2 M/yr and greater than
  • Plant located 150 miles or less from IAC school

To request an assessment, contact the nearest IAC
university. See
