Public utilities in the Pacific Northwest serve more than 2,000 megawatts of industrial load. As regional demand increases it will become increasingly important for all users of electricity to improve their energy efficiency.
In the past, annual energy efficiency savings in the industrial sector
have been in the 3aMW to 6aMW range. In an effort to significantly improve
upon this performance BPA has launched the ESI program, and all its various
components. BPA set new aggressive goals for the ESI program as shown
below. Energy savings of this magnitude will be a tremendous aid in meeting
the growing energy demand in the region.
In addition, there are significant benefits for both utilities and industrial facilities participating in the ESI program.
Benefits to utilities
The ESI program works with BPA utility customers to deliver cost-effective energy efficiency in all industrial sectors. ESI program staff are experts in industrial sector energy efficiency. They provide technical expertise and resources that may not be available at the utility level to help utilities achieve energy efficiency goals. Program delivery is customized for each utility to assure that utility/end user relationships are maintained, existing utility industrial programs are not impacted and projects are completed to the satisfaction of both utilities and end users.
Benefits to industrial facilities
The ESI program works with industrial facility customers through their local public utility to deliver cost-effective energy efficiency in all industrial sectors. There are a wide variety of program options for industrial users of all sizes and budget levels. By participating you can save money and energy, and may increase productivity and profitability.
ESI program staff are experts in your industry. These professionals provide technical expertise and resources to assure projects meet your quality assurance standards and are completed as planned.
