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:
The U.S Department of Energy’s eGuide is a dynamic tool that guides your energy team to build and continually improve your energy management program over time. With three levels for you to choose from to account for your different needs, the new DOE eGuide is designed with the end-user—YOU—in mind.

Use the Energy Opportunity Register to identify & track all energy projects. Track the details of important SEM practices, prioritize energy projects and determine what actions to take, track implementation status of energy projects and SEM practices, plan for persistence of energy savings on energy projects, and provide a critical link between projects implemented and the savings indicated by your energy intensity model.
|An energy policy is a formal plan that helps your organization pursue a high-performance energy portfolio. This course walks through the process of creating an energy policy and provides examples of proven policies implemented by successful organizations.|
|This course takes users through the process of finding, understanding and recording energy data from bills and other sources. It provides tips for organizing data, and an introduction to recording energy baselines used to measure progress.|
This course explains how to create a baseline using simple averaging, single and multi-variable regression. It provides examples, including how to use spreadsheets to develop your organization’s baseline for use in monitoring and tracking performance and data visualization techniques.
