U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Samuel W. Bodman on October 12 expanded the DOE’s work to maximize energy efficiency by increasing cooperation among
Specifically, this MOU includes a variety of activities, which aim to assist manufacturing facilities in implementing an energy management program; adopt clean, efficient technologies; and achieve continual energy efficiency and intensity reduction improvements. Through this partnership, DOE seeks to advance President Bush’s Twenty in Ten Initiative, which promotes greater energy security through increased efficiency and diversification of clean energy sources.
“Increasing energy efficiency is not only good practice, but it can also be good business,” Secretary Bodman said. “Today’s agreement between DOE and

“Entering into this partnership with DOE to increase energy efficiency builds on the unique strength of American manufacturers as the world’s leaders in energy efficiency and conservation,” Engler said. “Energy efficiency is an important contributor to our future energy security. Building upon manufacturers’ leadership in this area doesn’t just make energy and economic sense, but common sense.”
DOE offers a wide range of respected tools, training, and other resources that enable manufacturers to identify opportunities for energy savings. If the
