Energy and Manufacturing Update

Paper on U.S. Energy and Manufacturing
The paper Energy Policy and U.S. Industry Competitiveness, written by Energy Team staff members, was presented at the July 2007 Summer Study on Industrial Energy Efficiency, held by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. This paper provides an overview of energy use by U.S. manufacturers and the impact of rising energy prices on U.S. manufacturing competitiveness, and discusses policies that could help U.S. manufacturers remain competitive in the current energy price environment. An updated version of this report is scheduled for the latter part of 2009.
