Abstract

Manufacturing energy intensity is a measure of energy consumption per unit of manufacturing output. In this paper, we examine energy intensities in the U.S. Organic Chemicals industry. Process end uses that were included in the model are: process heating, process cooling & refrigeration, machine drive, electro-chemical processes, and other process uses. The main federal database that we used for constructing energy enduse models is the U.S. Energy Information Administration Manufacturing Energy Consumption Survey (MECS). The secondary federal database used is the U.S. Energy Information Administration 860B: Annual Electric Generator Report. The estimates and models are created for the most recent data which is given for 2002. The data for 2006 is still under progress by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
