Boeing’s Energy Management Program Leverages EPA Energy Star Resources to Improve
This article will describe the energy management system improvements made at the Boeing Company through its participation the Energy Star industrial partnership program. All improvements were based on the Energy Star guidelines: making a commitment; assessing performance and setting goals; creating an action plan; implementing the action plan; evaluating progress; reassessing; and recognizing achievements. Key among these were: formalizing a corporate energy policy; establishment of corporate energy and environmental goals; requiring each major site to develop improvement plans and projects to achieve those goals; creating a targeted energy conservation project investment fund to support the implementation of those projects; expanding energy bill payment and data collection service across all facilities; establishing a corporate-wide conservation scorecard system for monitoring progress; and improving internal recognition and communication processes. The success of Boeing’s efforts was borne out by their achievement of the 2011 Energy Star partner of the year award for energy management.
