Title:
Energy Benchmarking Analysis: A study to identify energy benchmarks for Minnesota’s manufacturers

Abstract:
The Minnesota Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP) believes that energy benchmarks can provide manufacturing facilities with necessary energy use information and persuade them to implement energy efficiency opportunities as a means to remain competitive among their peers. Therefore, MnTAP proposed to use customer and energy data collected as part of the Industrial Conservation Market Analysis study to develop manufacturing facility energy benchmarks. The resulting benchmarks provide a starting point to quickly quantify and compare the relative efficiency of industrial facilities to subsector peers.
