Development of ENERGY STAR Energy Performance Indicator for Integrated Steel Mills

Last Updated: 01-18-2021

This report describes the data and statistical methods used to construct the Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) for integrated steel mills. It also explains how the EPI was developed to provide a plant-level indicator of energy efficiency by working with the steel industry. This report is useful if you would like background information on how EPA's ENERGY STAR Integrated Steel Mill EPI was developed. The report presents the individual equations used to develop the EPI.

Integrated Steel Plant EPI

Last Updated: 01-18-2021

Use this tool to determine the ENERGY STAR 1 - 100 energy performance indicator score of your integrated steel plant. The Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) will help your company improve its energy efficiency by comparing your energy performance to similar integrated steel plants in the U.S. and Canada. 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.
