DOE Launches Second Round of Energy Savings Assessments (11/14/06)

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced that a second round of 250 Industrial Energy Saving Assessments (ESAs) is open for applications by eligible industrial facilities. By providing these assessments, the DOE is working with major manufacturing facilities to identify energy- and money-saving opportunities, primarily by focusing on steam and process heating systems.

Kohler Co. recently completed an Energy Savings Assessment. The assessment focused on reducing the amount of energy used in Kohler's process heating systems for cast iron. Kohler employees were also introduced to and trained on the DOE's Process Heating Assessment and Survey Tool, which is available to companies free of charge to help assess their energy use and identify energy savings opportunities.

The DOE is currently inviting large industries to take part in this national effort. To apply, eligible companies should visit www.eere.energy.gov/industry/saveenergynow.
