Procter & Gamble - 2010
Julia Li spent her summer at Procter & Gamble, a prominent Fortune 500 multinational corporation that strives to provide consumer products of superior quality and value. Li is a LEED accredited professional with a Master's degree in Architecture. She is currently an MBA student at the Foster School of Business, University of Washington.
The focus of Li's work at P&G was on the Pringles plant in Jackson, Tennessee. The plant, which manufactures Pringles for all of North America, is one of the plants with the highest levels of energy consumption at P&G. Working with the plant's construction and facilities technical engineer manager, Li determined areas of low-hanging fruit as well as future opportunities. She identified potential savings in HVAC by coating the roof with a high reflectivity product and electricity reductions through lighting retrofits and vending misers. Amongst many big picture savings ideas, she explored areas such as biomass boilers and variable frequency drives.
In total, Li found opportunities at the Jackson plant that could cut approximately 18 million kWh of electricity and avoid 17,500 tons of CO2 emissions. P&G looks to explore these potentials in earnest. In addition, she discovered and implemented a state administered incentive program new to the Jackson plant. The plant will receive $100 per kW reduced during peak demand periods for future sustainability projects.
Where is she now?
Li is now a strategist at Wunderman.
