Bandwidth Studies

Starting in 2013, AMO developed and refined a consistent methodology for bandwidth studies such that comparisons could be made across the manufacturing sector.  Energy Bandwidth Studies analyze energy use and the potential for energy savings in various processes for selected manufacturing sectors. The studies estimate potential energy savings by calculating differences among the typical energy consumption levels for a specific process and lower consumption levels based on the use of state of the art technology and technology currently under research and development. Bandwidth studies are available for the following sectors,:


Energy consumption among manufacturing facilities is heavily weighted toward larger, more energy-intensive companies. A study estimates the number of manufacturing large energy users (LEUs) in every state by manufacturing sector. Large energy users are defined as manufacturing facilities with total site energy consumption greater than 0.2 TBtu.
