The Asphalt Pavement Production focus is a coordination between EPA's ENERGY STAR program, the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), and U.S. asphalt pavement producers to reduce energy consumption and costs at the plant level through proven practices and technologies.  Participants in the focus will be able to join peer group conference calls, attend an annual ENERGY STAR Industrial meeting, have access to ENERGY STAR tools, and contribute to development of the Asphalt Pavement Production Energy Guide. This focus launched in November 2019.

Benefits of participating

  • Learn strategies to reduce fuel and electricity costs in a peer network.
  • Co-brand your energy program with ENERGY STAR, one of the most recognizable brands in the U.S.
  • Network with leading manufacturers on best practices in energy management.
  • Receive public recognition from ENERGY STAR for your energy efficiency achievements.

Focus Activities

Asphalt Plant Energy Performance Peer Exchange (APEX) Program

Companies participating in the Asphalt Pavement Production focus can join APEX calls hosted jointly by NAPA and ENERGY STAR where participants share energy management tips and learn more about energy efficiency at asphalt mix plants.

Asphalt Pavement Production Plant Energy Guide

An energy guide is being developed for this industry which will consolidate energy management best practices and proven technologies for asphalt pavement production plants. Energy guides are reviewed by an internationally recognized expert on industrial energy efficiency. Input from focus participants is incorporated in the development process to provide a useful tool for facilities.

Collaboration with the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA)

ENERGY STAR is collaborating with NAPA on this industrial focus to better connect with the industry and provide resources for asphalt plants across the nation. More information on NAPA can be found on NAPA's website.

Other Activities for Participants

Join ENERGY STAR’s Industrial Partnership

Many manufacturers, including well recognized companies within their industries, are ENERGY STAR partners. ENERGY STAR partners voluntarily commit to track energy and implement an energy management program. Learn more here.

Find Hidden Energy Treasures

An Energy Treasure Hunt engages employees in identifying low cost or no cost energy saving opportunities by focusing on improving the day-to-day operations of existing equipment. Learn more here.

Help Your Plant Set Goals and Earn Recognition

The ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry is an energy management tool that helps companies set plant energy performance improvement goals. Sites that achieve the ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry are recognized by the EPA for their leadership in reducing energy intensity. Learn more here.
