Throughout 2017, many ENERGY STAR certified plants will be hosting events at their facilities to showcase their energy-saving strategies that are delivering top energy performance. For more information on which plants are hosting events, see www.energystar.gov/industrialshowcase,

Since 2006, ENERGY STAR has certified manufacturing plants that reach the top 25 percent of energy performance for their industries nationwide each year. ENERGY STAR certified plants must have their energy performance independently verified. Plants from the automotive, cement manufacturing, corn refining, food processing, glass manufacturing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and petroleum refining industries are among those that qualified in 2016.
