Title: U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Industrial Programs and Their Impacts

Abstract

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Industrial Technologies Program (ITP) has been working with industry since 1976 to encourage the development and adoption of new, energy-efficient technologies. ITP has helped industry not only use energy and materials more efficiently but also improve environmental performance, product quality, and productivity. To help ITP determine the impacts of its programs, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) periodically reviews and analyzes ITP program benefits. PNNL contacts vendors and users of ITP-sponsored technologies that have been commercialized, estimates the number of units that have penetrated the market, conducts engineering analyses to estimate energy savings from the new technologies, and estimates air pollution and carbon emission reductions. This paper discusses the results of the most recent PNNL review (conducted in 2005). From 1976-2004, the commercialized technologies from ITP’s research and development (R&D) programs and other activities have cumulatively saved 4.72 quadrillion Btu, with a net cost savings of $23.1 billion.

  • The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Industrial Technologies Program (ITP), within the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, has been working with industry since 1976 to encourage the development and adoption of new, energy-efficient technologies. ITP’s cost-shared research, development and demonstration (RD&D), technology transfer, and information-sharing efforts have helped industry not only use energy and materials more efficiently, but also improve environmental performance, enhance product quality, and increase productivity. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) annually reviews and analyzes the benefits of ITP programs and documents these benefits in the DOE Impacts Report to help ITP determine the impact ofmore » its programs. PNNL contacts vendors and users of ITP-sponsored technologies that have been commercialized, estimates the number of units that have penetrated the market, and conducts engineering analysis, in conjunction with the vendors/users, to estimate energy savings and other non-energy benefits associated with the technologies. Estimates of air pollution and carbon emission reductions are then determined (based on the fuel savings and process changes that have environmental benefits). In addition, PNNL investigated the status of emerging technologies, which are expected to result in a commercialized product within 2-3 years. This paper will discuss the results of the PNNL 2003 review.« less
  • The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE'S) Office of Industrial technologies (OIT), within the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, has been working with industry since 1976 to encourage the development and adoption of new, energy-efficient technologies. OIT'S cost-shared research, development and demonstration (RD&D), technology transfer, and information-sharing efforts have helped industry not only use energy and materials more efficiently but also improve environmental performance, enhance product quality, and increase productivity. to help OIT determine the impact of it's programs, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) conducts a periodic review and analysis of the historical benefits of OIT programs. PNNLmore » contacts vendors and users of OIT-sponsored technologies that have been commercialized, estimates the number of units that have penetrated the market, and conducts engineering analysis, in conjunction with the vendors/users, to estimate energy savings associated with the new technologies. Estimates of air pollution and carbon emission reductions are then estimated (based on energy savings as well as process changes that have environmental benefits). PNNL also estimates non-energy benefits, such as reductions in labor costs, waste handling costs, etc. This paper will discuss the results of the most recent PNNL review (conducted in 2000).« less
