MSC Becomes a Better Buildings, Better Plants Program Partner

Three members of the MSC team participated in a week-long energy workshop hosted at Oak Ridge National Lab’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility. The workshop delved into various topics such as energy management, process heating, steam, compressed air, and motor-driven systems, alongside an overview of alternative energy solutions. Moreover, attendees gained proficiency in utilizing diagnostic equipment and DOE's complimentary software tools to pinpoint energy conservation prospects and evaluate potential cost reductions. As a result of this workshop, MSC has decided to set ambitious energy, water, waste, and carbon reduction goals by partnering with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE's) Better Buildings, Better Plants Program.

The DOE’s Better Buildings, Better Plants Program is a national partnership initiative to drive significant improvement in energy efficiency across U.S. industry. Through Better Plants, manufacturers and industrial-scale energy end users set ambitious energy savings goals, develop energy management plans, and track and report their annual progress. More than 280 companies and industrial organizations are leading the way on energy efficiency by participating in Better Plants and have collectively saved more than 2.2 quadrillion British thermal units (TBtu) and $10.6 billion in cumulative energy costs as of 2022.”

"Manufacturing Sciences Corporation's commitment to improving its energy productivity by 25% over 10 years establishes the company as a leader in efficiency and helps strengthen the nation’s manufacturing competitiveness,” said Dr. Steve McKnight, Interim Acting Director, Advanced Manufacturing & Industrial Decarbonization Offices, U.S. Department of Energy.
