South Carolina is home to a diverse manufacturing base with more than 3,500 industries. The manufacturing sector in South Carolina accounts for approximately 40% of the energy consumed in the state. The South Carolina Manufacturing Extension Program (SCMEP) and South Carolina Energy Office (SCEO) have partnered to help the state’s industrial sector reduce its energy intensity by 2.5 percent annually.
The project was funded as one of 23 state and 5 regional awards presented by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE’s) Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO; formerly the Industrial Technologies Program) in 2009. The overall objective was to improve the operational energy efficiency of South Carolina manufacturers, ultimately improving their competiveness and their bottom line. To achieve this goal, SCEO and SCMEP delivered Industrial Assessment Center- and Energy Savings Assessment-style energy assessments to small- and medium-sized manufacturers throughout the state. In addition, the team conducted training for industrial stakeholders to provide them with the skills to identify and implement energy efficiency improvements and reduce waste in their facilities.
