The Institute for Industrial Productivity (IIP) was one of the sponsors of the 2011 California France Forum on Energy Efficiency Technologies (CaFFEET) where IIP's Executive Director, Jigar V. Shah, was the keynote speaker. CaFFEET's aim was to bring together industrialists and experts in the seven levers which can be used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in industry. The seven levers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are: 1) energy efficiency, 2) on-site renewable energy, 3) fuel switching, 4) energy storage, 5) demand response, 6) carbon offsets, and 7) green electricity purchase. The conference discussed barriers to low carbon plants and strategies to overcome them.
