Significant decline in energy use and intensity by manufacturers show improvements in both energy efficiency and changes in manufacturing output mix.
The US Energy Information Agency released data March 19th documenting a 17% decrease in total energy consumption by the manufacturing sector from 2002 to 2010.
Manufacturing output only declined by 3% over the same time period.
Interestingly, the decline in consumption was noted for all fuels.
