"Energy efficiency is the one energy resource that all countries possess in abundance.” - Dr. Fatih Birol, executive director of the IEA
The industrial sector accounts for about one third of the total energy consumed and one-third of fossil fuel related greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. In addition to moral obligations to our planet, our children and future generations, there is clearly an ongoing need for companies to continue with their energy efficiency efforts, even with the prevailing low energy prices we are seeing today. Businesses cannot take it for granted that energy prices will continue to stay at the current low level over the medium to long term. While many industrial companies are taking some positive action, substantial energy efficiency opportunities for manufacturers still remain.
