The U.S. Department of Energy is convening three regional dialogue meetings on Industrial Energy Efficiency & Combined Heat and Power: Southeast, January 24, 2013; Northeast-MidAtlantic, March 13, 2013; Western, October 29, 2013.
 
These Regional Dialogue Meetings will focus on developing and implementing state best practice policies and investment models that address the multiple barriers to greater investment in industrial energy efficiency and combined heat and power (CHP). Building on the August 30, 2012 Executive Order, the Department of Energy is fostering “a national dialogue through ongoing regional workshops to encourage the adoption of best practice policies and investment models that overcome the numerous barriers to investment, provide public information on the benefits of unlocking investment in industrial energy efficiency, and use existing Federal authorities that can support these investments.”  On June 21, the Department of Energy held the Midwest Regional Dialogue; to learn more, visit http://www1.eere.energy.gov/seeaction/pastevents.html
 
The industrial sector accounts for over 30 percent of all energy consumed in the United States, and for many manufacturers, energy costs affect overall competitiveness. While our manufacturing facilities have made progress at becoming more energy efficient over the past several decades, there is an opportunity to accelerate and expand this improvement with investments to reduce energy use through more efficient manufacturing processes and facilities and the expanded use of CHP. Accelerating these investments in our Nation’s factories can improve the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturing, lower energy costs, free up future capital for businesses to invest, reduce air pollution, and create jobs.
