Explore the interactive wheel below to discover how Dow energy products and solutions are helping to enhance sources, optimize uses and minimize energy losses for industrial energy users.
The technology to drive gains in industrial efficiency is not a question of “when.” It’s here and now. Currently available efficiency technology could reduce industrial energy use by 15-20 percent in a matter of months. We should know. Dow has been a leader in industrial energy efficiency for decades. We’ve already reduced our own energy intensity by 38 percent and have pledged a further 25 percent reduction by 2015. Our best practices can be adopted by businesses and governments worldwide.

Ensuring our manufacturing economies have a predictable energy supply today is one of the most important factors affecting the ability of the industrial sector to contribute new solutions to the interconnected challenges of energy and climate change in the future. Effective development of existing hydrocarbon supply as well as the incremental substitution of alternatives when appropriate is critical to maintaining a vibrant, healthy industrial sector capable of being an agent for change.
Opportunities for industrial energy users to do much more with much less are a practical reality today. By sharing best practices across sectors, manufacturers have can create a necessary win-win that drives cost from supply chains and assures industry continues to do its part to protect the environment and serve as responsible stewards of global resources. From facility lighting to power transmission to insulation and in a thousand other ways, industrial energy can pay dividends to industrial users not just tomorrow, but now.
Historically, traditional patterns of industrial energy use have often involved the escape of vast amounts of energy, often in the form of waste heat or excess fuel. As one of the world’s largest industrial energy consumers, Dow has pioneered strategies to mitigate and minimize these losses by developing approaches to solutions -- from co-generation to natural gas recapture -- and in the process saving billions of dollars and pointing the way to a more environmentally friendly global manufacturing sector.
