NFPA's DOE Initiative for Energy Efficiency

A series of articles describing NFPA’s actions focused on the development of a program within the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) that can fund and focus on energy efficiency improvements using fluid power technology. The envisioned program would be partly research-focused, helping to develop new energy efficient fluid power technologies, and partly education-focused, helping to improve the design and maintenance of existing fluid power systems with current technologies and techniques.

Part 1: Setting the Stage

Part 2: Introducing Fluid Power to the Department of Energy

Part 3: Determining the Energy Consumption of Fluid Power Systems

Part 4: Connecting Fluid Power to the U.S. Department of Energy

Part 5: Facing the Challenge of Assessing the Inefficient Industrial Use of Fluid Power

Part 6: Detecting and Correcting Inefficiencies in Hydraulic Systems

Part 7: Getting Engaged with the U.S. Council of Competitiveness

Part 8: Technologies Driving the U.S. to Our Energy Future
