On May 5, 2005, the cement industry participated in EPA's 2005 Annual ENERGY STAR Focus on Energy Efficiency in Cement Manufacturing at California Portland Cement Company's Rillito, Arizona plant. Participants considered methods for improving energy management in cement manufacturing from making the business case for strategic management to understanding the breadth of a corporate energy management program. Discussion also covered the ongoing development of an ENERGY STAR plant energy performance indicator to gauge the energy efficiency of a cement plant. For more information, contact Betsy Dutrow.

EPA Announces Availability of ENERGY STAR Energy Performance Indicator for Auto Assembly Plants
EPA and Argonne National Laboratory, with the support of the auto manufacturers have produced a viable model for evaluating the energy efficiency of auto assembly plants. The energy performance indicator (EPI), developed through EPA's ENERGY STAR Focus on Energy Efficiency in Auto Manufacturing, is the first of its kind for a manufacturing industry. Using the EPI, the energy efficiency of auto assembly plants now can be evaluated using several basic pieces of information about a plant. Copies of the EPI will be available for download from the ENERGY STAR website in late May 2005. For more information, contact Betsy Dutrow.

April, 2005
The DOE Industrial Technologies Program (ITP) is making a Plant-Wide Assessment (PWA) award to the California Portland Cement Company for a Plant-Wide Energy Efficiency Assessment at the Arizona Portland Cement Plant. This PWA will analyze the current energy usage and opportunities of three plant areas - cement manufacturing, process optimization, and operation efficiencies; electrical power distribution and lighting opportunities; and compressor air operation - to identify opportunities to improve energy efficiency, and develop an implementation plan. More information on Plant-Wide Energy Efficiency Assessments is available online.
