This report describes the data and statistical methods used to construct the Energy Performance Indicators (EPIs) for fluid milk processing plants. It reviews how the EPIs were developed to provide plant-level indicators of energy performance by working with the dairy industry. The report also presents the individual equations used in the EPI.
Use this tool to determine the ENERGY STAR 1 - 100 energy performance score of your fluid milk and/or yogurt processing plant. The Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) will help your company improve its energy efficiency by comparing your energy performance to similar fluid milk and yogurt processing plants in the United States. 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 ENERGY STAR certification for superior energy performance.
This two page document provides an overview of the ENERGY STAR Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) for Fluid Milk and Yogurt Processing Plants. It describes what types of plants can use the use EPI, the data required to use the EPI, and background on ENERGY STAR certification.
