U.S. Manufacturing Energy Use and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Analysis

Download the document.

This report documents the energy pathway, from supply through demand, for several of the most energy-intensive manufacturing sectors. It captures step-by-step energy use and losses from offsite sources, onsite generation, and process and nonprocess end uses. A key output of this analysis is the “footprint” that graphically displays energy use and associated greenhouse gas (GHG) combustion emissions across U.S. manufacturing process and nonprocess end uses. Areas of high energy losses and GHG emissions represent central targets of opportunity for more advanced, efficient energy systems.
