The U.S. Department of Energy’s Better Buildings, Better Plants Program is working with leading manufacturers to improve energy efficiency in the industrial sector. Participating companies set a specific goal, typically to reduce energy intensity 25 percent over a 10-year period across all their U.S. operations. Ingersoll Rand met its goal in 2015, improving energy intensity 26 percent over four years across 36 U.S. facilities.
