U.S. Industrial Energy Efficiency Coalition

IEEC leveraging industrial controls and automation expertise of major automation companies and NEMA.

03/21/2012


Industrial Energy Efficiency Coalition (IEEC), an alliance of industrial controls and automation suppliers, is advocating for new federal policies that encourage manufacturers to implement energy efficiency strategies to boost productivity and sustainability.

With U.S. industries consuming one third of the country’s energy, the industrial sector has a significant opportunity to achieve substantial energy savings of 25% to 30% over the next 25 years by installing new controls and automation technologies. However, current government policies and investments are failing to adequately address these potential energy saving opportunities.

The IEEC was established to leverage its members’ collective expertise in controls and automation to promote processes, best practices, technologies and standards to help ensure the most efficient use of electrical energy by the U.S. industrial sector.

The IEEC is administered by NEMA the association of electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers. Founding members are ABB, Eaton, GE Energy’s Industrial Solutions business, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, and Siemens. Together, these founding members supply an estimated 75 percent of the industrial controls purchased by U.S. companies.

“We are proud to unite with other industry leaders in helping the IEEC advocate for new policies and programs that encourage greater investment in industrial energy management and services,” said Sergio Corbo, chief marketing officer for GE Energy’s Industrial Solutions business. “This will dramatically increase energy efficiency and plant modernization throughout the country’s industrial ecosystems.”
