California’s Industrial Energy Efficiency Best Practices Technical Outreach and Training Program
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the California Energy Commission’s (Commission) energy policies and programs that save energy and money for California’s manufacturing and food processing industries to help retain businesses in-state and reduce greenhouse gases through decreased energy use. The Commission’s objective is to achieve 2 trillion British Thermal Units (Btu) per year in energy savings for California industry by the year 2010. These energy savings will come from implementation of projects that are a direct result of plant assessments conducted by the Commission, and from improved skills of industrial equipment operators attending United States Department of Energy (DOE)-funded industrial BestPractices workshops conducted by the Commission in partnership with industry and the state’s utilities. In addition to energy and cost savings for California’s industrial sector, this program will also reduce direct carbon dioxide emissions from industrial processes by over 110,500 tons each year.
