Potential for industrial energy efficiency technology to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions


Journal Article

The industrial portion of a Department of Energy study that assessed the potential for energy-efficient technologies to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions in the United States is described. The objectives of this portion of the study were: to assess the contribution that an effort to move efficient technology into the industrial market could make to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2010; and to describe the role of research and development in providing a stream of advanced technologies after 2010 that can continue to reduce industrial energy intensity and greenhouse gas emissions. Examples of advanced technologies that could contribute to saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions beyond 2010 are presented.
