EPRI's Industrial Energy Management Program
MetadataShow full item record
The loss of American industry jobs to foreign competition is made worse by national concerns over fuels combustion and other industrial activity effects on our environment. Energy efficiency programs and new electrical processes can play a major role in restoring the environment and in creating a stronger industrial sector in the national economy. Since 1984 the Electric Power Research Institute has been establishing industry specific Centers and Offices nationwide to assist electric utilities and their customers in managing for a better use of energy. Hundreds of joint industry/utility projects are funded at a level in excess of $10 million annually. By providing technical guidance and sponsoring research and development projects, these Centers and Offices are a key element in EPRI's role of improving the value of electricity to consumers. The specific contributions of this program and how industry and utilities can jointly benefit from its activities are discussed.
