Small and medium size manufacturers comprise approximately 90% of manufacturing establishments but use only 50% of the energy consumed by industry. But these facilities also pay higher energy prices, so savings add up to a larger percentage of facility costs. As a result, several efficiency programs now offer a suite of programs targeting this business sector.
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.
