Energy audits at 180 industrial plants revealed that they were missing out on savings of more than 750,000 MWH/year.
The audits found that insulation could bring reductions of 500,000 tonnes of global warming CO2 to the plants. That is roughly equivalent to the annual gas emissions of 110,000 cars.
180 plants have used the audits since 2010. The research, published yesterday (11 May), gives a picture of how much energy is being wasted.
But three out of four of the industrial clients have already or plan to act to improve their insulation, according to the EIIF.

Such investments will be paid back after one or two years through the cost savings from greater efficiency. At least € 23.5 million could be saved, the EIFF said.
