Detroit Dieselís Engine Manufacturing Center in Redford MI has been recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as one of the first manufacturing facilities to meet the Energy Star Challenge for Industry.
Under the EPAís Energy Star Challenge for Industry, manufacturing sites establish an energy intensity baseline, set a 10% reduction goal within five years or less, implement energy efficiency projects, track energy use, and verify their savings.
Detroit Dieselís Engine Manufacturing Center exceeded the EPAís reduction goal by reducing its energy intensity by 17% within one year. Detroit Diesel has been an Energy Star partner since 2009.
In addition, the facility was also recognized for Outstanding Achievement at the DTE Energy and The Engineering Society of Detroitís Energy Conference and Exhibition for the Industrial Sustainable Energy Program of the Year. This award recognizes the Michigan-based industrial company that has made the most contributions in the area of energy conservation.
