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:
Online-sem.com helps you implement Strategic Energy Management (SEM) at your facility and within your organization. On the website you can access online training modules, find tools and resources, and track your progress through the training.
|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.
|This course explains how clear goals can help you work together toward a vision to accomplish greater savings. It presents a step-by-step method to set and achieve energy goals, targets, projects and action plans.|
|During this course you will learn how to set goals and measure results, including a step-by-step process for setting and documenting meaningful Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for tracking performance. You’ll learn about the energy-intensity KPI and the benefits of using it to strengthen your energy management program.|
|The importance of a monitoring, targeting, and reporting system to optimize and maintain best possible energy performance is the focus of this course. It includes examples of effective commercial and industrial monitoring techniques.|
This technology guide explores monitoring and targeting techniques, and shows how organisations can adopt an appropriate level of monitoring and targeting in a way which will help them to save energy and cut costs.
This document outlines recommended methodologies to establish the baseline energy models at a whole-facility or subsystem level, and ultimately quantify energy savings associated with the implementation of multiple energy efficiency measures (EEMs) over a defined performance period.
