With a foreword by the Hon. Charles D. McConnell, former assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy, the book provides a clear understanding of both scope of the opportunity and the available methodologies for capturing energy savings.

Divided into two sections, the book provides both management and technical recommendations. The management section offers guidance on how to design and implement energy management programs, with advice on the organizational design, human interaction, and technical aspects of energy management. The second section deals with the technical aspects of significant process equipment and systems, seen through the lens of energy efficiency as well as process requirements.
