Johnson Controls Power Solutions has earned the Department of Energy (DOE)Save Energy Now award.

This award is a recognition for manufacturing Iowa facility, that have implemented significant savings through an energy assessment.

Johnson Controls' Red Oak, Iowa facility saved more than 10,100 million British thermal units (MMBTU) adding up to 9.9 percent of total energy savings. 

"This demonstrates how energy efficiency can help to strengthen this nation's energy security, environmental quality and economic vitality all with technologies and practices that are available today," Zoi said.  

"Save Energy Now" is a national initiative of DOE's Industrial Technologies Program (ITP) to drive a 25 percent reduction in industrial energy intensity over 10 years. Through "Save Energy Now," ITP conducts no-cost energy assessments at U.S. manufacturing facilities to identify ways to reduce energy use in key industrial operations.

"Johnson Controls is committed to sustainability and reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, which is especially important in Power Solutions where we have high energy usage," said Allen Martin, vice president and general manager of the Americas for Johnson Controls Power Solutions. "Red Oak will serve as a best practice as we look to implement similar efficiencies across our manufacturing footprint."
