A New Benchmark of Energy Performance for Energy Management in U.S. and Canadian Integrated Steel Plants
Repository Usage Stats
ENERGY STAR® supports businesses and consumers by making it easier to save money and protect the climate through superior energy efficiency. A key ENERGY STAR energy management tool for industry is the plant Energy Performance Indicator (EPI), which provides a bird’s-eye view of a plant’s sector-specific plant-level energy use via a functional relationship between the level of energy use and the level and type of various production activities, material input’s quality, and external factors. This paper describes the development of the first EPI for evaluating the energy performance of integrated steel mills in the U.S. and Canada.
