The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy has accepted Gorell Windows & Doors into its "Save Energy Now Leader” program. As a participant, the Pennsylvania-based vinyl replacement window manufacturer has pledged to reduce its energy intensity—and associated carbon emissions—by at least 25 percent over the next 10 years.

As part of the DOE program, Gorell has agreed to establish energy use and energy intensity baselines, and to develop an energy management plan over the next 12 months. As a Save Energy Now Leader, the manufacturer will report its energy intensity, energy use data and achievements annually to the DOE. Gorell is one of only 105 companies in the country that have signed up to participate thus far.

By setting ambitious energy reduction targets, Save Energy Now Leader companies will help create demand for energy-efficient manufacturing technology today and into the future, according to DOE. “Supporting the development of the latest industrial technologies plays an important role in helping U.S. industry to lead the world in energy efficiency and productivity,” says U.S. Secretary of Energy Chu. “Working together with American manufacturing and IT industries, we will be able to create new jobs, reduce industrial energy use and limit damaging greenhouse gas emissions.”
