The primary focus of the Industrial EE Network program is
highlighting successful projects and practices. Sometimes all it takes
is the "spark" of seeing another company's achievement to get the wheels
turning at your own shop.
As we close the books on 2013, we thought it would be interesting to have all of our participants submit some memorable projects or practices implemented during this year. No idea it too small and if everyone contributes, we'll have a great
repository of work completed. We're just seeking a "blurb" so it should not be very time intensive. Let's see how many of these we can

Industrial EE Network Director, Rick Marsh, receives "Champion of Energy Efficiency in Industry" Award
The American Council for an
Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) presented four "Champion of Energy
Efficiency Awards" at its biennial Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in
Industry. The awards recognize leadership and accomplishment in the
energy efficiency field. Winners are selected based on demonstrated
excellence in program implementation, research and development, energy
policy, or private sector initiatives. The four winners were nominated by
their peers and selected by a committee of ACEEE’s Board of Directors
from an impressive group of over 75 nominations. Selection criteria were
based on each nominee’s impact, innovation, and leadership in the
energy efficiency field.
"It is an honor to receive this award," said Rick Marsh during the award ceremony. "This recognition speaks to the uniqueness of our program and the void it has filled by uniting manufacturers to drive implementation of energy efficiency measures through peer-to-peer connections. A sincere thank you to my many colleagues from manufacturing and beyond who have actively participated, shared content with others and hosted events at their facilities. Thank you also to the Department of Energy and the Energy Foundation for financial support over the years to execute this work as a resource to manufacturing."

Presentations & Video from the Industrial EE Summit - Online Now
Thank you to the attendees of the Industrial Energy Efficiency Summit event held in Nashville during July. Your participation made this event a great success. Presentations are now online so you can review what you learned. Also, through our partnership with the TN Energy Education Initiative, many of the sessions were video recorded and you can watch the speaker alongside the slide deck. For those unable to make it, we certainly missed you. But you don't have to miss out on the Summit's content.
