Use the Integrated Steel Plant EPI to assess how efficiently a mill uses energy, relative to similar mills in the United States and Canada. The 1 - 100 ENERGY STAR score enables a quick understanding of how a mill is performing. Mills receiving a score of 75 or higher are eligible to earn ENERGY STAR certification. For more information on how to seek ENERGY STAR certification for integrated steel mills in the U.S., see www.energystar.gov/plants.
