DOE Conducts Energy Assessment at Industrial Plant in Idaho
DOE launched an Industrial Energy Saving Assessment in Lewiston, Idaho, on February 21st. The three-day energy assessment is being carried out at a site where Potlatch Corporation's lumber products and paper mill manufactures more than 1,500 tons of paper products per day. Through its free energy assessments, DOE is working with major manufacturing facilities to identify opportunities to save energy and money, primarily by focusing on steam and process heating systems. DOE's Energy Saving Teams have completed visits to 28 large federal facilities and are in the process of visiting 200 of the most energy-intensive manufacturing facilities in the United States as part of the national "Easy Ways to Save Energy" campaign launched in October 2005. See the DOE press release.
