Operationalizing Energy Efficiency in Manufacturing

The presentation highlights the “energy efficiency “journey our organization has embraced and the continuous improvement we are driving into the future. The project scope includes a global manufacturing and engineering company.

In 2017, we leveraged a partnership with the Department of Energy and began to deploy the Energy Treasure Hunt methodology across our global footprint. Over the past 18 months, we have been operationalizing the key lessons learned from our Energy Treasure Hunt experience. This involves us developing and deploying “Energy Efficiency Operating Standards” across the enterprise.

Integration of energy efficiency standards into our processes and operational philosophy is a critical tool in our Sustainability strategy.
