The Industrial Energy Consumers of America (IECA) supports domestic and global action to address the threat of climate change, including actions by the UNFCCC. Domestic and global policy must assure that U.S. manufacturing companies have a level playing field with global competitors. We support cost-effective action and welcomes the opportunity to work with policymakers. GHG reductions within the manufacturing sector can best be achieved through technology improvements and its incorporation into manufacturing production facilities. IECA is strongly supportive of energy efficiency, the use of cogeneration, recovery of waste to energy, building renewable energy production inside-the-fence line, the purchase of renewable energy and demand response.
