CalPortland wins Better Plants award for reducing energy intensity by 28%

The US Department of Energy (USDoE) has recognised Better Plants partner CalPortland for achieving their energy intensity reduction goal of 28% since 2010.

The Better Plants programme, part of the USDoE’s Better Buildings Initiative, works with manufacturers and water wastewater treatment agencies to boost their competitiveness through improvements in energy efficiency.

The company was formally recognised at the Better Plants conference, where chief energy engineer William Jerald accepted the award. As part of the broader Better Buildings Initiative, the partners voluntarily set a long-term goal, typically to reduce energy intensity by 25% over a ten year period across all their US operations.

Jerald said: “This is a genuine tribute to the ongoing commitment by our employees through our company’s comprehensive energy management culture.”

CalPortland utilised USDoE programmes and software tools to help identify energy savings and accelerate investment in energy efficiency technologies and practices. Additionally, the company has performed USDoE training sessions driving cost savings and the sharing of solutions that helped achieve energy intensity reduction.

Daniel R. Simmons, assistant secretary for energy efficiency and renewable energy, says: “Their leadership and willingness to share solutions demonstrates what’s possible and provides an energy efficiency roadmap for the rest of industry to follow.”
