Energy Efficiency for Small, Mid-Sized Manufacturers is Webcast focus

On May 15, manufacturers can learn about programs to help measure, manage plant energy usage

05/07/2014


Energy Efficiency for Small and Mid-Sized Manufacturers will be the topic of a May 15 Webcast presented by Plant Engineering and the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE). The Webcast begins at 1 p.m. CDT, and will be sponsored by Atlas Copco, Caterpillar, Kaeser Compressors and Siemens.

A 2013 Plant Engineering Research Study on Energy Management found that 53% of manufacturers don’t conduct energy audits. Yet with energy management a huge cost for manufacturers, measuring and managing energy is gaining importance.

It’s especially important for small to mid-sized manufacturers, who make up 90% of manufacturing facilities and pay a higher price than large manufacturers for the energy they do consume. Efficiency programs do exist to help those manufacturers manage their costs, but not many manufacturers take advantage of these programs, many of which are free.

At Plant Engineering’s May 15 Webcast, Ethan Rogers, Senior Program Manager for Industry with ACEEE, will discuss the types of programs targeting SMMs as well as those serving the industrial sector as a whole. Based on a recent ACEEE report, "One Small Step for Energy Efficiency: Targeting Small and Medium-Sized Manufacturers," which analyzed how efficiency programs are offering manufacturers energy audits to identify opportunities, rebates and informational materials. The presentation will be followed by a live question and answer session.
