Energy Efficiency for Small and Medium-Sized Manufacturers

Small and medium sized manufacturers (SMM) face a unique set of challenges when it comes to managing energy use. Expertise in energy-efficient operations may not exist in the organization and employees may already have a very full plate helping the company run smoothly. Managing energy may seem like one more task on a long list of things that must be done.

But that need not be the case. With a little education and support from ENERGY STAR a small or medium sized manufacturing company can improve the energy efficiency of its operations thereby increasing profit margins, securing a more competitive position in the market place and reducing its environmental impact.
