Unformatted text preview: ty in the low energy intensive aerospace industry which features many of the common barriers described in Appendix A and in first paragraph of this section. However, it is important to note that although the research was conducted in a low energy intensity industry environment, the methods and conclusions are likely easily generalizable to high energy intensity industries as well because the cost incentives to increase process energy efficiency are generally more compelling. Chapter 2 provides background for the thesis in terms of a literature review and details about the testing environment. Chapter 3 presents the hypotheses of the research. Chapter 4 details measurement methodologies and data sources used in the research. Chapter 5, which is the bulk of the document, describes two field experiments used to test the hypotheses and their results in some depth. In addition, the same chapter also provides a short treatment of "right-sizing" equipment and some data that indicates its potential impact on energy usage reduction. Finally, Chapter 6 proposes a framework...
