Industrial and Process Efficiency Program

Performance-based incentives can help manufacturers and data centers implement energy efficiency and process improvements that will improve productivity and reduce costs.

IPE's goal is to help manufacturers and data centers increase product output and data processing as efficiently as possible. Therefore, incentives are calculated, when appropriate, based on a reduction in energy usage per unit of production or workload.
