Whether working to meet corporate sustainability goals, achieve energy cost reduction targets, establish credentials as a “green manufacturer,” or prepare for future regulations on carbon emissions—or all of the above—industrial players are seeking internationally recognized plans for improving their energy efficiency. The Department of Energy’s Superior Energy Performance program is a market-based, globally accepted certification program that provides industrial and commercial facilities with a roadmap for achieving continual improvement in energy efficiency while boosting competitiveness.
This webinar will provide a unique opportunity to get an inside look at the Superior Energy Performance from two important perspectives. As the DOE lead working on the development of the Superior Energy Performance program, Paul Scheihing will offer his insights into the establishment of SEP in partnership with industry in the United States. As environmental manager for Volvo’s New River Valley plant, Stephen Pierett will share his experience as one of the early industrial participants in this groundbreaking program.
The Yale Center for Business and the Environment is pleased to launch our fifth annual online webinar series. This year’s series will continue Blueprint for Efficiency, with an emphasis on the latest developments and opportunities for energy efficiency in the private sector. Through weekly presentations from leaders in the corporate, non-profit, and public-private arenas, we will explore a range of successful models that make the business case for energy efficiency.
This year’s series is a collaboration between the Yale Center for Business and the Environment and the Alliance to Save Energy (ASE). Founded in 1977, the Alliance is a large Washington, D.C. based nonprofit organization that works solely to promote energy efficiency worldwide through research, education and advocacy.
