The MEA has formed a team whose goal is to help Maryland manufacturing facilities move forward with energy saving projects. The Maryland Save Energy Now team offers assistance to companies no matter where they are in their pursuit of energy savings. If a company is only starting to evaluate energy savings opportunities, the MEA team will help find an assessor to identify most promising areas of energy savings. If a company has already conducted an energy assessment but has not moved forward with project implementation, MEA team will work with the company to find ways to turn the potential energy savings into reality. The team also offers assistance to manufacturing plants that want to use highly efficient onsite power generation, known as combined heat and power (CHP).

MEA Tours CHP Facility, Promotes New Incentives
The Maryland Save Energy Now team organized a tour of the combined heat and power (CHP) facility at the Johns Hopkins University, Homewood Campus on November 8, 2012.
