WAUPACA – Waupaca Foundry Inc. was one of 14 companies recently recognized for its decarbonization, energy and water and waste efficiency efforts by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Better Building Initiative at its Better Buildings, Better Plants Summit.

This is the third year Waupaca Foundry has been recognized as one of the DOE’s Better Plant recipients.

Marco Gonzalez, energy manager at Waupaca Foundry, said the award shows the company’s commitment to innovation and sustainability.

“This was a great job done by the electrical maintenance team and a good example that small projects can also have a big impact,” he said.

The award was specifically for Waupaca Foundry’s Plant 23 SMART Control System, a ventilation management system designed to optimize energy use and improve workplace conditions.

DOE’s Better Buildings Initiative partners with leaders in the public and private sectors to advance next-generation solutions, promote climate leadership and support workforce development.

U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm said since 2011, DOE’s Better Buildings Initiative has helped pave the way for cost-effective energy efficiency and decarbonization solutions across America’s building sector.

She said more than 250 Better Plants partners have saved energy, equivalent to more than $9 billion in cost savings.
