Energy efficiency through best practices

Owens Corning is a manufacturer of glass fiber for buildings and has made energy efficiency a key focus area. The company integrates best practices in energy management into its day-to-day operations. Energy efficiency is the subject of ongoing discussions not only among managers, energy teams and staff, but also with customers, suppliers and utilities. To reduce overall energy use, each plant in the company has an energy leader who is also part of a company-wide energy team. Team members stay in close contact about ways to further improve industrial energy efficiency. Individual plants meter their energy-using systems to help track actual usage. Metering and submetering help to keep plants informed about where additional conservation strategies are needed. Plant energy teams often work with local utilities and others to implement energy-saving improvements.
