MEEA Webinar: Better Buildings, Better Plants - Schneider Electric Company Spotlight

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Better Buildings, Better Plants Program is a voluntary partnership initiative to drive significant energy efficiency improvement across U.S. industry. More than 140 leading manufacturers are partnering with DOE through Better Plants to improve efficiency, cut energy costs and carbon emissions. Through this program, leading manufacturers partner with DOE to improve their energy intensity by 25% over ten years, develop energy management plans, and track and report their annual progress.

Schneider Electric now has five manufacturing facilities certified in the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Superior Energy Performance™ (SEP) program and ISO 50001. SEP provides guidance, tools, and protocols for any facilities that wish to gain deeper, more sustained savings from ISO 50001 and complements DOE’s Better Buildings, Better Plants program. This webinar took a deeper look into the Better Buildings, Better Plants program and Schneider Electric’s industrial efficiency accomplishments. Edwin Willhite, Regional Facility Manager for Schneider Electric, presented on the company's participation in Better Plants and ISO 50001, along with a review of recent company energy efficiency initiatives and involvement in SEP.
