Energy Management Earns Two of Four Awards for Industrial Energy Efficiency

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) named four industrial "Champions of Energy Efficiency" on July 31st at its biennial conference on energy efficiency in industry. The winners include Aimee McKane of DOE's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, for her work on DOE's "Compressed Air Challenge" and "Industrial Best Practices" partnerships; Gunnar Walmet of the New York State Research and Development Authority, who runs a leading research and development program in industrial energy efficiency; Steven Schultz, director of corporate energy management at 3M; and the Rohm and Haas plant in Deer Park, Texas, which has achieved impressive energy savings and emissions reductions through its energy management program. See the ACEEE press release.

For more information about DOE's industrial energy efficiency programs, see the Industrial Technologies Program Web site.

While energy management is a hot topic for industry, it also serves as an energy-saving strategy for a wide range of businesses and government agencies. The latest strategies and products for saving energy in buildings will be presented at Energy 2003, the sixth annual national energy management workshop and exposition. Sponsored by DOE's Federal Energy Management Program, Energy 2003 takes place in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, from August 17th through the 20th. See the Energy 2003 Web site.
