Who should attend:

Employees responsible for managing energy consumption. In some cases organizations have a designated energy manager and a team of employees who help that person. Those team members are also a prime audience. A wider range of positions also can benefit from the information, including:

  • Maintenance – shift mechanics and electricians
  • Production – operators, supervisors and process stewards
  • Engineering – area engineers, process engineer and design engineering
  • Plant Subject-Matter Experts/Owners – HVAC, compressed air, electrical, etc.
  • EHS/ABS/Project Management/Six Sigma
  • Shipping and Receiving
  • Management – plant and corporate

The Department of Energy (DOE) will provide a description of its Better Plants program, including resources that can enhance your company's ability to improve energy performance. These resources include training, a diagnostic equipment loan program, a technology transfer initiative, and an online tool to facilitate implementation of the ISO 50001 standard. This webinar will also help you gain a deeper understanding of the Better Plants program and its value proposition for manufacturers.
