Finding Low- and No-Cost Opportunities

Low-and no-cost opportunities include shutting off lights and equipment when not needed, repairing leaks in compressed air systems, adjusting equipment settings, and other measures. MillerCoors, Toyota, and other leading companies have developed a process to periodically organize teams of employees to look for these types of energy saving opportunities.

This presentation, given to CIEC participants in January 2016, provides an excellent overview of the benefits and process (often referred to as “energy treasure hunt”) of looking for low-cost energy saving opportunities. The EPA Energy Star program has also developed this useful guide to conducting energy treasure hunts.
