The bootcamp will offer training on two ORNL-developed free software tools for identifying and quantifying energy savings—MEASUR and VERIFI—and demonstrate diagnostic tools, including infrared cameras, leak detectors, and combustion analyzers.

“Petroleum, chemical, iron and steel, cement, and food and beverage manufacturers contribute more than 50% of CO2 emissions in the U.S. industrial sector and 15% of U.S. economy-wide total emissions,” ORNL’s Thomas Wenning says. “This bootcamp gives plant managers a better understanding of the resources available and approaches for decarbonizing these facilities.”
