GLRPPR Sector Resource: Manufacturing Energy and Carbon Footprints

Manufacturing Energy and Carbon Footprints

Energy and Carbon Footprints provide a mapping of energy from supply to end use in manufacturing. They show us where energy is used and lost--and where greenhouse gases (GHGs) are emitted. Footprints are available below for 15 manufacturing sectors (representing 94% of all manufacturing energy use) and for U.S. manufacturing as a whole. Analysis of these footprints is also available in the U.S. Manufacturing Energy Use and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Analysis report. The industries available are: -- All Manufacturing -- Alumina and Aluminum -- Cement -- Chemicals -- Computers, Electronics and Electrical Equipment -- Fabricated Metals -- Food and Beverage -- Forest Products -- Foundries -- Glass -- Iron and Steel -- Machinery -- Petroleum Refining -- Plastics -- Textiles -- Transportation Equipment Each footprint visualizes the flow of energy (in the form of fuel, electricity or steam) to major end uses in manufacturing, including boilers, power generators, process heaters, process coolers, machine-driven equipment, facility HVAC, and lighting.
