A snapshot of AMO’s Sankey diagram depicting the flow of energy throughout the entire U.S. manufacturing sector
AMO has released Manufacturing Energy Sankey Diagrams which map the flow of energy supply, demand, and losses in the U.S. manufacturing sector. The diagrams use weighted energy flow lines to illustrate the magnitude of energy consumption and losses. In one succinct image, one diagram shows the complete pathway from primary energy consumption to energy applied directly to plant operations. Three additional Sankey diagrams illustrate U.S. manufacturing: 1) onsite-generated energy, 2) process energy, and 3) non-process energy.
