Industry: Critical to National Energy Policy

2004 Energy Use*

  • Uses more energy than any other single sector; >1/3 of U.S. energy consumption

  • Accounts for more than 40% of U.S.natural gas demand

  • Accounts for 28% of U.S. electricity demand

  • Produces approximately 30% of U.S greenhouse gas emissions







Residential 21.1%

*Includes electricity losses

Challenges for energy intensive industries l.jpg
Challenges for Energy-Intensive Industries

  • International technology/cost competition

  • Uncertain environmental constraints

  • Limited access to LT investment capital

  • Uncertain long-term economics

  • Natural gas prices and supply

    • Henry Hub spot price on November 8 2005, was $11.89/MMBtu

  • “Many companies have been unable to pass higher energy costs on to their customers, which has sharply reduced their profit margins” National Energy Policy, pages 2-4

ITP Strategies

  • Near-Term (0 – 2 years):

  • Redirect TD to pursue natural gas saving opportunities via:

    • Technology and market assessments

    • Application guides explaining opportunities, implementation strategies, permitting issues, etc.

    • Training and education

  • Longer-Term (>2 years):Significant process changes and permitting required

    • Explore opportunities in FE and other EERE technologies

    • Conduct applied R&D for industrial applications

Technology delivery resources l.jpg
Technology Delivery Resources

  • DOE-supported energy assessments (IAC,CTA,PWA)

  • Qualified specialists

  • Energy efficiency trainingfor plant staff

  • Energy analysis software tools

  • Case studies and information
