State Industrial Efficiency Rankings Report

A new report by the Alliance for Industrial Efficiency ranks states on their potential for industrial energy efficiency and CHP/WHP to reduce carbon emissions. This report – State Ranking of Potential Carbon Dioxide Emission Reductions through Industrial Energy Efficiency – demonstrates that states could help the industrial sector seize enormous opportunities to cut carbon emissions, while saving money and making manufacturers more competitive. By investing in industrial energy efficiency (including CHP and WHP), states can cut carbon emissions by 174.5 million short tons in 2030 – equal to the emissions from 46 coal-fired power plants – while saving businesses $298 billion from avoided electricity purchases.
