Arkansas Industrial Energy Clearinghouse - Successes and Lessons Learned from Creation to Implementation
MetadataShow full item record
This paper shares the successes and lessons learned during the development stage and first eight months of the Arkansas Industrial Energy Clearinghouse (ArkansasIEC). Through the state of Arkansas via ARRA funding, the ArkansasIEC supports and promotes energy efficiency developments in Arkansas' industrial and manufacturing sector. As many Arkansas companies seek to reduce energy use, GHG emissions, and utility costs, the ArkansasIEC provides customized plant-level information and technical resources in support of starting an energy management program, performing energy self-assessments, understanding the energy use of industrial energy systems, recommending energy savings opportunities, understanding utility costs, utilizing system-specific software to manage energy systems, and identifying available financial incentives from local, state, and federal sources. The ArkansasIEC has both a presence on the internet and a full-time engineer to directly interact with manufacturing companies. This paper defines the need for the program and details its development, approach, and evolution; and it also chronicles the success and lessons learned to date.
