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.
