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.
A rapidly growing approach to energy efficiency, strategic energy management (SEM) programs realize savings by using capital in concert with operations and management improvements to facilities. By using various frameworks, evaluators of these programs can estimate reductions in energy consumption before and after program implementation.
In this study, the authors used a simulation approach to test different frameworks and model specifications.
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.
