There is an enormous gap in the electric productivity of the nation. If the country achieved the normalized industrial electric productivity of the top ten performing states, the U.S. would save 300,000 gigawatt-hours (GWh) each year, over the lifetime of the efficiency measures. This is the equivalent of 8% of all electric retail sales. Increasing industrial electric productivity is a significant near-term opportunity that can reduce electricity costs, carbon dioxide emissions per unit of output, and increase profits. RMI believes that increasing industrial electric productivity is an untapped source of value, and is important to the longevity of industry in the United States.
