Better Plants

Through the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO), our team supports the Better Plants Program, which encourages manufacturers and water utilities to set long-term goals to achieve significant energy and water intensity improvements over a 10-year period across all their U.S. operations. Organizations participating in the Better Plants Program receive technical assistance, national-level recognition and ongoing support from ORNL’s technical account managers. ORNL coordinates In-Plant Trainings at Better Plants facilities to train plant staff to establish energy management systems, conduct plant assessments, use DOE energy assessment tools, and implement cost-effective projects.
