LUYANDO CUEVAS, José Raúl; ZABALOY, María Florencia; GUZOWSKI, Carina  and  ALVARADO LAGUNAS, Elías. Exploratory Study on Energy Efficiency for Companies in the Monterrey Metropolitan Area. Secuencia [online]. 2021, n.111, e1863.  Epub Sep 27, 2021. ISSN 2395-8464.

The industrial sector is one of the largest energy consumers worldwide and therefore, one of the most polluting. Using energy efficiency (EE) measures in this sector therefore provides broad economic and environmental benefits. In this context, the article examines the degree of implementation of EE measures in a sample of companies located in the Monterrey Metropolitan Area, in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Its main contribution is a diagnosis that could be useful for designing and implementing state EE programs and actions. The results show that large and medium-sized companies are those that most identify and implement EE measures, focusing their efforts on staff training. The main barriers faced by the companies surveyed are information and financing, particularly in the case of small companies.

Keywords : energy efficiency; industry; barriers; Monterrey; Mexico.
