U.S. Dept. of Energy Secretary Steven Chu has announced plans to provide $256 million from the

American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to support energy efficiency

improvements in major industrial sectors across the American economy.

 

The funding is targeted at

reducing the energy consumption of America's manufacturing and

information technology industries, while creating jobs and stimulating economic

growth. These programs will help create manufacturing jobs quickly, along with

jobs for technicians and experts who will be needed in the long-term to

maintain and operate the new equipment.
