    • Biological Processing: potential for materials synthesis, chemical catalysis, and materials synthesized at the nanoscale


    Industrial energy efficiency u s policy initiatives opportunities

    Industrial Related R&D in the U.S. Department of Energy

    • Office of Fossil Energy: Carbon Sequestration R&D and Initiatives

    In 2009, industry accounted for slightly more than ¼ of U.S. carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from energy consumption (5,405 million metric tons per EIA data).

    Recovery Act funds were allocated to more than 25 projects that capture and sequester CO2 emissions from industrial sources (e.g., cement plants, chemical plants, refineries, paper mills, and manufacturing facilities) into underground formations.

    Three large-scale projects are expected to capture and store a total of 6.5 million tons of CO2 per year, and increase domestic production of oil by more than 10 million barrels of oil per year by September 2015.

    Another seven projects seek ways to convert captured industrial CO2 emissions into useful products, e.g., fuel, plastics, cement, and fertilizers.

    Numerical simulation of geologic carbon sequestration: the ability to simulate CO2 flow and transport in deep subsurface formations is critical for assessing injectivity, capacity, trapping mechanisms, brine displacement, and long-term impacts of injected CO2.

    Industrial energy efficiency u s policy initiatives opportunities

    DOE's 26 university-based Industrial Assessment Centers (IACs) conduct energy assessments of small and medium-size plants* at no charge.

    Faculty-led teams of engineering students conduct the assessmentsas training for careers in industrial energy efficiency.

    IACs serve up to 300 plants per year (under 1 TBtu/yr or 25ktoe/yr) and typically identify savings of 8% to 10% or $115,000/plant (181,000 BRL/plant)

    Energy Management: Small/Medium Plant Assessments

    Industrial Assessment Centers

    eere.energy.gov/industry/bestpractices/iacs.html

    * IAC plants typically have gross annual sales of less than $100 million, fewer than 500 plant employees, and annual energy bills less than $2 million.

    Section I: US DOE’s Industrial Technologies Program


    Energy management iac transition and deployment

    Energy Management: IAC Transition and Deployment

    • Who benefits?

    • IACs focus on an underserved sector – small to medium companies with no technical staff that has energy analysis as a primary duty

    • IAC grads are in demand – nearly 60% have jobs in energy fields before they leave

    Why it works

    • IAC students follow-up 60 days after the assessment report and debrief to assist with implementation

    • Implementation saves companies money and promotes a culture of energy efficiency – lays the foundation for additional technology deployment and continuous improvement


    Monitoring and measuring results

    Monitoring and Measuring Results

    • DOE monitors and measures results from its industrial energy efficiency programs.

    • Administers consistent and reliable collection and recording systems

    -- McKinsey Quarterly, 2008

    • Upstream suppliers may account for 2-4 times greater energy use.

      • Opportunities are often dispersed and difficult to tap with limited resources.

    • ITP resources can assist buyer companies in working with their suppliers to capture these energy and carbon reduction opportunities.

      • Improves sustainability, reduces risk,builds partnership with suppliers

    Bottom line

    Bottom Line

    Energy efficiency is our cleanest, cheapest energy resource.

    U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, Testimony to U.S. Senate, 2010.

    Energy efficiency improvements exist in all sectors, but some of the biggest are in industry and transport

    U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, 2009

    The potential to increase [industrial] efficiency is huge—the sector could reduce energy use by 14% to 22% by 2020 by using financially attractive technologies.

    Excerpt from National Research Council report Real Prospects for Energy Efficiency in the United States, 2009

    Existing technologies with an attractive internal rate of return can cut the growth in global energy demand by half or more within 15 years.
