US industry wastes too much energy?

With wasted electricity accounting for nearly 25 percent of their total energy consumption, industries in the US need a lot more help in cutting their energy use and improving their efficiency, a new industrial coalition says.

The policies and investment decisions being made today “do not adequately address energy savings opportunities in the industrial sector,” according to the Industrial Energy Efficiency Coalition (IEEC).

Not surprisingly, the group’s founding members specialize in control and automation technologies designed to improve energy efficiency. Among them: ABB, Eaton, GE, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric and Siemens, which together provide about 75 percent of the industrial controls bought by US companies.
