In September 2007, the US Department of Energy (DOE) and China's National Development Reform Committee (NDRC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to increase cooperation and energy efficiency in China's industrial sector, which accounts for 70% of energy demand. Under the MOU, a DOE team of industrial energy efficiency experts and an NDRC counterpart team will conduct on-site audits of plant production processes and energy systems at up to 12 facilities from the top 1000 energy enterprises in China. DOE will provide tools to conduct the plant audits and train factory personnel on plant audit techniques. DOE will also conduct a comparison study of the Chinese enterprises and US manufacturing plants to identify differences in best practices.
