Energy Efficiency Improvement and Cost Saving Opportunities for the Vehicle Assembly Industry
This guide discusses energy efficiency opportunities available for assembly plants. Where available, the authors provide specific primary energy savings for each energy efficiency measure based on case studies, as well as references to technical literature. If available, costs and typical payback periods are also provided. The findings suggest that although most motor vehicle companies in the U.S. have energy management teams or programs, there are still opportunities available at individual plants to reduce energy consumption cost effectively.
