General Motors - Engaging Plant Operators Pays
As part of its comprehensive energy management plan, General Motors Corporation (GM) develops "Energy Sufficiency Plans" that focus on individual employees taking responsibility for energy in their own work area. These plans provide detailed information on procedures for turning off equipment, lights, fans, etc. and steps for identifying energy waste in each area of a plant.
The steps and actions outlined in the "sufficiency plans" also identify the person who is responsible for managing a particular piece of equipment and the expected energy performance and savings. GM's energy management program provides training and support as needed to individual operators to help ensure their success. Involving personnel at the operator level has paid off. GM estimates that the sufficiency plans have helped save over $57,000,000 within two years.
