As part of an ambitious waste and energy-efficiency project, Advanced Components & Systems Division — Joliet Hydraulics, converted the process steam system to electric, ordered a compressed air leak inspection and implemented a regular audit and communication process. The project began in January 2014 and yielded cost savings of about $212,000 by the end of the year, with nearly 2.4 million kWh and over 1,600 metric tons of CO2 emissions avoided. Natural gas savings in the same period were about $41,500, with 320 metric tons of CO2 emissions avoided.

For the enterprise, operational energy intensity decreased 28 percent from 2006 to 2014 and 27.4 percent of our electrical energy was from renewable or alternative sources in 2014.
