Industrial processes use about one-third of all energy in the United States, more than any other sector of the economy, but current policies and investments do not adequately address energy savings opportunities in this sector. The Industrial Energy Efficiency Coalition (IEEC) is an alliance of companies seeking to leverage their expertise and track record in industrial controls and automation to promote continuous energy efficiency improvements. The IEEC seeks to promote processes, methods, best practices, technologies and metrics to improve energy efficiency throughout industrial production.
The current membership (Eaton, GE, Rockwell, Schneider Electric, and Siemens) represents approximately 75% of the market for industrial controls and automation in the United States with over 830 plants employing in excess of 34,000 people. However, their impact is much greater, with member companies supplying products that are used by a large portion of the U.S. manufacturing base – 331,000 establishments employing 12 million people.
The IEEC unites the efforts of leaders in technologies and solutions for industry in order to further their common goals: to provide leadership in the promotion and implementation of energy efficiency in industry while accelerating growth opportunities for its members.
