The US EPA’s ENERGY STAR® Guidelines for Energy Management provide a proven strategy for creating an energy management program focused on continuous improvement of energy performance. This document provides additional information and guidance to make Energy Management a success at an organization. These guidelines are also featured as a resource within the U.S. Department of Energy’s 50001 Ready Navigator tool. The guidelines can be used to gather preliminary information on an energy management system and framework, to better understand Energy Management, and/or to review an energy management program. Primary audiences for this resource include: executives, energy champions, energy teams, sustainability coordinators and executive sponsors.
This Resource Sheet “Business Drivers and the EnMS” is a resource available within the U.S. Department of Energy’s 50001 Ready Navigator tool. It helps users understand how a variety of social, external and internal business drivers impact decisions, and which of these business drivers to consider when developing and pitching an Energy Management System, or EnMS. It also helps organizations think about energy, energy management and improved energy performance within the context of their organization, as well as their current and future business priorities and needs. Primary audiences for this tool include energy champions, executive sponsors and energy teams.
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.
