ENERGY STAR products are independently certified to save energy without sacrificing features or functionality. Saving energy helps prevent climate change. Look for the ENERGY STAR label to save money on your energy bills and help protect our environment.
Improving your home's energy efficiency with ENERGY STAR can help to lower high energy bills, improve comfort and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Learn about the many ways to save in your home and track your progress with "My ENERGY STAR" - your new dashboard to savings.
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.
This guide discusses energy efficiency practices and energy efficient technologies that can be implemented at the component, process, system, and organizational levels of the U.S. pharmaceutical industry. Expected savings in energy and energy-related costs are given for many energy efficiency measures, based on case study data from real-world applications in pharmaceutical and related facilities worldwide. Typical measure payback periods and references to further information in the technical literature are also provided, when available.
This guide discusses energy efficiency practices and energy-efficient technologies that can be implemented at the component, process, facility, and organizational levels of the U.S. pulp and paper industry. Next, a wide variety of energy efficiency measures applicable to pulp and paper mills are described. Many measure descriptions include expected savings in energy and energy-related costs, which are based on case study data from real-world applications in pulp and paper mills and related industries worldwide.
Use this guide to learn cost-effective ways to reduce the energy use of your textile plant while still maintaining the quality of manufactured products. The guide outlines available measures for energy efficiency in the textile industry, including best practices and technologies. It also includes the expected energy and cost savings based on real world examples.
Use this guide to learn cost-effective ways to reduce the energy use of your iron or steel plant while still maintaining the quality of your products. The guide outlines available measures for energy efficiency in the iron and steel industry, including best practices and technologies that can be implemented at the component, process, facility, and organizational levels. It also includes the expected energy and cost savings based on real world examples.
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.
This assessment matrix can be used by small/medium sized companies to help them get started and/or advancing their energy management program. This is a simplified matrix from the ENERGY STAR Energy Management Assessment Matrix.
An Energy Treasure Hunt is a two- to three-day event that engages employees in identifying low-cost energy savings opportunities from behavioral, operational, and maintenance actions. This 31-page guidebook provides step-by-step guidance on how to organize and execute an Energy Treasure Hunt. Examples from ENERGY STAR partner organizations and checklists are provided to illustrate practices and help with implementation. This guide complements EPA's ENERGY STAR Guidelines for Energy Management.
