A new home or apartment that has earned the ENERGY STAR label has undergone a process of inspections, testing, and verification to meet strict requirements set by the US EPA. ENERGY STAR certified homes and apartments use significantly less energy than typical new homes and apartments while delivering better comfort, quality, and durability.
Use this tool to determine your cement plant's energy performance. The Energy Peformance Indicator (EPI) will help your company improve its energy efficiency by comparing your energy performance to similar cement manufacturing plants in the U.S. The spreadsheet includes instructions for using the EPI, a State of Energy Performance form, and a Facility Performance Report. Manufacturing plants that earn a 75 or higher using this EPI are eligible to earn the ENERGY STAR certification for superior energy performance.
This 2-page factsheet presents an overview of energy use and greenhouse gas emissions from cement plants in an easy-to-read format.
The factsheet is part of the Industrial Insights series, which uses EPA data to provide information on energy use in industrial facilities. EPA’s ENERGY STAR partnership has worked with the cement industry since 2002 to promote energy efficiency and best practices within the sector through the ENERGY STAR Industrial Focus initiative.
