U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Plants Industry Partners Save $9.3 Billion in Energy Costs

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released the Fall 2021 Better Buildings, Better Plants progress update. The report highlights more than 250 manufacturers and water utilities that have introduced energy efficiency and decarbonization measures, cumulatively saving more than $9 billion in energy costs and 1.9 quadrillion British thermal units (Btus) — more energy than the state of Wisconsin consumes in a year. The Better Buildings, Better Plants Program aims to decarbonize the industrial sector and the progress and success of its partners achievements will help accelerate the Biden-Harris Administration’s climate goals of a net-zero economy by 2050. 

“The industrial sector is one of the hardest to decarbonize, but America’s market leaders are leaning into the challenge to deliver cleaner air for all,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. “DOE’s Better Buildings, Better Plants Program is helping industry partners develop, implement, and share cutting-edge technologies and practices that save energy and money, protect our environment, and increase our nation’s competitiveness.”
