White House Executive Order in Stride with New MEEA Initiative

The President today issued an Executive Order highlighting the White House’s commitment to providing resources to promote expanded implementation of energy efficiency and combined heat and power in the industrial sector. This is good news for the Midwest given its base of industrial customers and the jobs that can be created through increased industrial output.

MEEA is positioned to assist the White House and the various Federal agencies, including Dept of Energy, EPA, Dept of Agriculture and others, in reaching industrial customers as well as convening the regional dialogue between Federal, State, utilities and manufacturers. The timing of the Order is also good as MEEA will soon be launching the Midwest Industrial Initiative to be a resource for utilities and manufacturers to better understand the value of efficiency and CHP, as well as promote related case studies, best practices, and emerging technologies.
