Energy Efficiency Improves
Significant decline in energy use and intensity by manufacturers show improvements in both energy efficiency and changes in manufacturing output mix.
The U.S. Energy Information Agency recently released data documenting a 17-percent decrease in total energy consumption by the manufacturing sector from 2002 to 2010. Manufacturing output only declined 3 percent through the same time period.
Interestingly, the decline in consumption was noted for all fuels. What is your shop doing to decrease your energy consumption?
