The Alliance to Save Energy today applauded U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu’s decision to allocate $256 million in economic recovery funds to increase energy efficiency efforts in the U.S. industrial sector. The funds were made available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).

"Secretary Chu’s industrial energy efficiency initiative represents an important step toward reducing energy consumption in U.S. manufacturing and information technology industries, which in turn will – as the secretary himself has stated – create jobs, speed development of clean technologies, and raise U.S. productivity in the industrial sector while curbing harmful greenhouse gas emissions," said Alliance Vice President Jeff Harris.

The ARRA funding will be channeled into three industrial sector areas: combined heat and power (CHP) and district energy; research and development (R&D) for energy efficiency improvements in information and communication technology; and advanced materials research and development. The advanced materials research and development projects will be used to support advanced clean energy technologies and energy-intensive processes. R&D will be aimed at fuel flexibility programs, CHP technologies, energy intensive processes, and nano-materials and nano-manufacturing.
