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.
The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) contracted with Portland Energy Conservation, Inc. (PECI) to help provide clarity on the range of Commercial Energy Management and Information Systems (EMIS) available and their respective feature sets. EMIS are software tools that store, analyze, and display energy use or building systems data. A wide variety of EMIS is available, and have shown promise for supporting nonresidential utility energy efficiency programs.The output of this work is an EMIS inventory that details the functionality of fourteen EMIS. The overarching objective of the inventory is to document EMIS features that can support utility programs and financial transactions for energy efficiency.
