Kentucky is a relatively industrialized state, with 44 percent of all energy consumption occurring in the industrial sector (compared to 33 percent for the U.S. as a whole). Kentucky industries have the potential to save millions of dollars by adopting technologies and practices that improve energy efficiency, conserve resources and increase product yields.
The U.S. Department of Energy created the Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) to coordinate national efforts to improve industrial energy efficiency and environmental performance. AMO works with diverse partners that will help U.S. manufacturers succeed.
