Arkansas Energy Office


Energy management tools and resources are available for design professionals, owners and managers of industrial facilities. For example, energy assessments of plants' steam systems can identify opportunities for substantial savings. Effective energy management can reduce utility bills and optimize energy use. 

The Department of Energy's Industrial Technologies Program can help industry use energy more efficiently. Arkansas-specific information includes:

  • economic indicators and a snap shot of industrial energy use
  • links on training opportunities to help improve industrial energy consumption
  • list of contacts to experts who can provide services and resources to help reduce energy consumption
Arkansas Industrial Energy Assessment Project
