WASHINGTON - On Thursday, April 1, from 2-3 p.m. Eastern time, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Industrial Technologies Program will present a Webcast by Andre de Fontaine, a markets and business strategy fellow at the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, who will discuss the findings from the Center’s forthcoming report, “From Shop Floor to Top Floor: Best Business Practices in Energy Efficiency.” The report describes leading corporate energy efficiency programs, identifies key lessons learned, and details energy efficiency strategy development and implementation through six in-depth case studies of these corporate programs.

The Webcast will give an overview of the motivations driving businesses to adopt more aggressive energy efficiency strategies, and discuss common barriers to implementing organization-wide efficiency initiatives. Insights from the case studies included in the report - which covers efficiency programs at Dow Chemical, United Technologies, IBM, Toyota, PepsiCo, and Best Buy - will also be shared.
