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 walks users through how to find, read and record energy data from bills and other sources. It provides tips for organizing data and an introduction to energy baselines for use in measuring progress.|
This course explains how to create a baseline using simple averaging, single and multi variable regression. It provides several examples and how to use spreadsheets to complete your organizations baseline for use in monitoring and tracking performance.
|This course gives an introduction to setting goals and a step by step process for setting meaningful Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for tracking performance. It introduces the energy intensity KPI and the benefits of using it to strengthen your energy management program.|
|This course presents the importance of a monitoring, targeting, and reporting system to good energy performance. It provides commercial and industrial examples of effective 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 workbook explores the two key elements of a successful T&M programme: it provides guidance for senior executives on setting energy reduction targets; and it is also a practical guide to systems that can be used to monitor energy use for managers who are responsible for their business energy management.
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.
