Plant-wide energy assessments identify overall energy use in manufacturing processes which can account for 10 percent or more of an industry's total operating costs and highlight opportunities for best energy management practices for industry, including the adoption of new, efficient technologies. BestPractices works with companies to characterize findings and document savings that can be replicated in other facilities and other industries for multiplied savings.

On average, the findings from a single assessment can be replicated in at least seven other facilities with equivalent systems and energy use. For a relatively low initial investment, companies that participate in assessments can expect to realize a minimum of $1 million in savings annually from energy costs, waste reduction, and increased productivity usually with a payback of less than 18 months.
