Industries in focus

EPA works with individual manufacturing sectors through ENERGY STAR to improve energy efficiency. ENERGY STAR industrial focuses provide a non-competitive environment for EPA and industry corporate energy managers to work together to build unique and helpful energy management tools for the industry.

Participation is voluntary and open to all companies within an industrial sector with production facilities in the U.S. Participating companies use their industrial focus to network among peers and share energy management best practices and techniques.
