25% over the next ten years

The US Department of Energy (DOE) and the Northwest Food Processors Association (NWFPA) set ambitious goals to reduce energy use and carbon emissions in the industrial sector. Together, they announced an industry-wide target of reducing energy intensity (energy use per unit of output) by 25% over the next ten years. A co-developed memorandum of understanding (MOU) provides a diverse range of opportunities for energy efficiency within the food processing industry and all manufacturers in the region. The MOU directly supports Save Energy Now, DOE’s national initiative to promote and support reductions in industrial energy intensity and carbon emissions throughout the US. Save Energy Now energy assessments have helped US manufacturers save an average of 8% of their total energy costs.
