Country Policy Summary: United States (Federal)

The industrial sector accounts for about one-third of total GHG emissions in the United States. Industrial energy efficiency in the US has improved substantially over the past 30 years; however, there are still significant opportunities for energy savings. While overall energy efficiency is lower in the US compared to other OECD countries, the energy intensity of the manufacturing sector has been falling and is now comparable to that in the EU-12. The figure opposite illustrates the breakdown of final energy consumption by industry sub-sector (300 Mt of oil equivalent in 2008).
