Energy efficiency has saved large manufacturers in the United States an estimated $2.4 billion in energy costs over the past five years, and could generate over $11 billion in annual energy savings by 2020.

These statistics come from the US Department of Energy’s Better Plants Program, a multi-sector initiative, which includes combined heat and power, to improve the energy efficiency of America’s commercial, residential, and industrial buildings.

Clean Technica reports that 157 companies have partnered with Better Plants, bringing approximately 2,400 manufacturing facilities and 11.4% of America’s manufacturing energy footprint into the program – roughly equal to the entire energy footprint of Tennessee.
