DOE Announces 'Save Energy Now' Award Recipients

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Industrial Technologies Program (ITP) recognized 151 U.S. manufacturers for their significant achievements in industrial energy efficiency with the third annual Save Energy Now Awards. Award recipients were companies that had actively pursued energy-savings opportunities identified during a 2009 Save Energy Now energy assessment, which has led to more than $32 million in cost savings and 4 trillion British thermal units (Btu) in total energy savings over the past year.

ITP recognized 95 plants with the Energy Saver award and 56 plants with the Energy Champion award. Energy Savers are plants that had more than 75,000 million Btu total energy savings or more than 7.5% total energy savings and Energy Champions are plants that had more than 250,000 million Btu total energy savings or more than 15% total energy savings.

Save Energy Now is a national initiative that aims to reduce industrial energy intensity by 25% in 10 years. Through this initiative, ITP conducts no-cost energy assessments at U.S. manufacturing facilities to identify ways to reduce energy use.
