This database aims to help decision makers identify technologies and measures that improve productivity and profits while reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions in industry, and assist companies in assessing the cost-effectiveness of energy efficiency investment options.
The Industrial Efficiency Technology Database is among the Institute for Industrial Productivity's package of databases on technology, policy, financing and supply chain initiatives that are publicly available and offered free of charge, as part of our mandate to increase industrial energy productivity in energy-intensive sectors.
Currently the database covers information on the cement, iron and steel and pulp and paper sectors as well as on electric motor driven systems, which are included as a cross-sectoral topic. Work is underway on glass industry and information will be available shortly. The information contained in the database is primarily compiled from a wide array of publicly available sources and published literature. In some cases, this information is supplemented by the knowledge and opinions of IIP's expert network.
