This paper reports on the work of EPA and the integrated steel industry to develop an Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) for integrated mills that develop and manufacture steel in the United States. The paper describes the data and statistical methods used to construct the EPI for evaluating the energy performance of integrated steel mills in the U.S. and Canada.
This report describes the data and statistical methods used to construct the Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) for metal casting plants. It also explains how the EPIs were developed to provide a plant-level indicator of energy efficiency by working with the metal casting industry. This report is useful if you would like background information on how EPA's ENERGY STAR metal casting plant EPIs were developed. The report presents the individual equations used to develop the EPIs.
The U.S. breakfast cereal industry consumes over $130 million on purchased fuels and electricity annually. This enegy guide discusses the variety of opportunities available at individual plants to reduce energy consumption in a cost-effective manner. The guide includes estimates of expected savings in energy and energy-related costs, based on case study data from real-world applications in breakfast cereal processing facilities and related industries worldwide. Typical measure payback periods and references to further information in the technical literature are also provided, when available.
