Caterpillar manages hundreds of facilities worldwide, all of which require energy. Some of these operations, especially our manufacturing sites, are energy intensive. To reduce our energy consumption and our GHG emissions, we are improving energy efficiency, investing in alternative and renewable power generation sources, and considering new technologies as they become available. Likewise, we are making other environmental improvements to conserve water and manage waste.
Our enterprise energy management team builds awareness, encourages action and develops improvements in energy efficiency and alternative/renewable power generation. These solutions include purchasing renewable energy certificates and installing renewable energy sources, such as photovoltaics (PV) or a microgrid installation that combines PV with battery storage to supplement and offset electricity generated with diesel fuel at an off-grid location. One significant contribution to alternative energy consumption is the operation of combined heat and power (CHP) systems to power several manufacturing facilities. The energy management team evaluates opportunities for replication of CHP, PV and microgrids at other locations. We also continue to assess new ways to upgrade systems and make facilities more efficient.
