DOE launches round 3 for industrial energy assessments

Save Energy Now assessments focus on energy-intensive components and systems. To date, the assessments have resulted in annual energy savings of nearly $63 million, and planned projects are expected to yield another $263 million in annual energy savings.

A program from the U.S. Dept. of Energy (DOE) that performed energy assessments at 253 industrial plants throughout the United States is accepting applications for its third round of energy assessments.
Save Energy Now assessments focus on energy-intensive components and systems, such as fans, pumps and systems for process heating, steam and compressed air. To date, the assessments have resulted in annual energy savings of nearly $63 million, and planned projects are expected to yield another $263 million in annual energy savings.
If all of the measures identified by the energy assessments were implemented, they would yield an annual cost savings of more than $574 million per year. In other words, each assessment has identified, on average, roughly $2.27 million in energy savings. DOE will make its initial selections of industrial plants for energy assessments starting in mid-September, and additional selections will be announced periodically until the target of 250 assessments is reached for the calendar year 2008. See the Save Energy Now website for more information.
