The Smart Buildings Center hosts a lending “library” of diagnostic tools available to building owners and managers, as well as energy service professionals in Washington State and Oregon, for short term data collection on energy using equipment and systems in commercial and institutional buildings. The SBC can help by loaning a range of data loggers, power meters, lighting loggers, infrared cameras, liquid and air flow measurement devices, and much more. Users can access these tools free of charge for prescribed time periods and capture data on system performance. https://www.smartbuildingscenter.org/tool-library/
Building Operator Certification® (BOC) is the leading training and certification program for building engineers and maintenance personnel. Program graduates make their buildings more comfortable, efficient and environmentally friendly, thanks to skills they master in our classes. And the BOC credential is just as valuable to building owners as it is to operators. Our graduates help their organizations substantially cut operating costs – as much as $20,000 per year. This training can help your organization achieve its strategic energy management goals. To learn more or find a training near you, visit: www.theboc.info
This is the full evaluation report on Puget Sound Energy’s (PSE) Resource Conservation Manager (RCM) program for the 2015 and 2016 program years. Published July 2, 2018.
The Energy Management Assessment (EMA) Tool offers a strategic and confidential analysis of your organization’s current energy management business practices and specific areas of opportunity. The EMA Assessment and other SEM Hub resources can then help you develop or improve your Strategic Energy Management (SEM) practices for your organization.
Northwest utilities and energy efficiency organizations are taking a collaborative approach to Strategic Energy Management. The NW SEM Collaborative was formed in 2011 based on the premise that the region can achieve more working together than can any single utility or organization working alone. The NW SEM Collaborative aims to help energy efficiency program administrators accelerate the adoption of SEM in the industrial and commercial sectors.
This evaluation report focuses on the Efficiency Vermont CEI Pilot, which sought to permanently integrate energy management into facility operations and management. The evaluation independently estimates the pilot’s energy savings as a result of the following four focus areas: capital upgrades, process improvements, predictive maintenance, and employee engagement.

Strategic Energy Management (SEM) programs have expanded over the years in the United States and abroad (CEE 2016). SEM programs vary widely in implementation and scope, but typically involve a longer-term customer engagement to train and embed energy efficient practices. Energy Trust of Oregon (Energy Trust) has been implementing industrial Strategic Energy Management since 2009.
This analysis looks at the 59 SEM customer facilities that were in the sample selected for the Energy Trust’s Production Efficiency Program 2012-2013 impact evaluation and a separate Industrial SEM Process and Impact evaluation. The following questions are investigated:
Energy Trust will introduce you to a cohort of peers in the business world to engage with in your training, growth and support. Plus, you’ll have access to Energy Trust experts who will give you the knowledge and guidance needed to become leaders in energy management.
Improving energy efficiency at your business is one of the easiest ways to reduce operating costs. You can invest more in your business and employees, plus reduce your environmental impact and operate more sustainably. Energy efficiency goes beyond investments in upgrades at your facilities. You can gain even more savings by engaging your staff in energy-saving practices. Energy Trust of Oregon is here to help.
This document was developed for the U.S. Department of Energy Uniform Methods Project (UMP). The UMP provides model protocols for determining energy and demand savings that result from specific energy-efficiency measures implemented through state and utility programs.
