A webcast that focuses on implementing corporate energy management systems is the next installment in the DOE's Industrial Technologies Program's Thursday webcast series.

Scheduled for June 3 at 2 p.m. ET, "Implementing a Corporate Energy Management System" will be presented by Steve Schultz, 3M Co.'s corporate energy manager, and Ken Roden, Nissan North America's energy team facilitator.

According to the DOE, Schultz and Roden will address the impact of having executive management's support and senior management's participation in implementing energy-efficiency projects, establishing cross-functional teams within an organization, and utilizing external resources to achieve energy goals. The webcast also will discuss the significance of active employee engagement in energy-efficiency projects and the value of recognizing achievements and communicating successes as key components in creating a corporate culture of energy efficiency.

Both 3M and Nissan North America have partnered with ITP as "Save Energy Now" Leader Companies, pledging to reduce their facilities' energy intensity 25 percent in 10 years.
