E3: Helping Manufacturers Improve Sustainability

Commitment by

Duke Energy Corporation

In 2012, Duke Energy committed to expanding participation in the Economy, Energy and Environment (E3) program with E3 partners, to include Indiana and Kentucky, and to offer energy assessments to an additional 45 manufacturing companies by the end of 2014. The E3 program helps US manufacturing customers become more environmentally and economically sustainable by providing lean production assessments and training, energy assessments, waste assessments, financial counseling, and additional services. As a partner in E3, Duke previously completed energy assessments for 12 manufacturing firms spread across Ohio, North Carolina and South Carolina. Duke Energy's expansion and scaling of the program will result in close to 4.4 million kWh saved and a cost-savings of approximately $640,200 for manufacturers.
