Barriers to Industrial Energy Efficiency: Report to Congress

US Dept. of Energy

…The report—including the accompanying study (Appendix A)—examines barriers that impede the adoption of energy efficient technologies and practices in the industrial sector, and identifies successful examples and opportunities to overcome these barriers. Three groups of energy efficiency technologies and measures were examined:

Industrial end-use energy efficiency,
Industrial demand response, and
Industrial CHP.
The report also includes the estimated economic benefits from hypothetical Federal energy efficiency matching grants, as directed by the Act. The conclusions of this collaborative effort emphasize the important role that industrial energy efficiency has in the United States and highlight its potential to continue to assist American industrial sectors with being strong, clean, and efficient for decades to come.
