Extended Benchmarking of Energy Use in Automobile Assembly Plants

Extended Benchmarking of Energy Use in Automobile Assembly Plants

Automobile Assembly Plants Using confidential data provided to Duke from GM, Ford, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, and Nissan this project is estimating the statistical distributions of energy efficiency of the internal operations of U.S. auto assembly plants. This "extended" benchmarking expands on prior work done for the EPA Energy Star program at the whole plant level to sub-plant level operations of body welding, painting and general assembly.
