EM&V Best Practices & Recommendations for Industrial SEM Programs

Strategic Energy Management (SEM) is a relatively new energy efficiency strategy that has demonstrated the ability to capture comprehensive savings from large industrial and commercial facilities. SEM program designs focus on achieving energy savings from continuous improvement of operational control of equipment, processes and systems as a practice to help customers and program administrators realize the savings potential.

The purpose of this report produced by the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP) is to provide energy efficiency program planners, evaluators, and regulators with information on the issues related to evaluation of savings and cost-effectiveness based on some of the current experience associated with evaluation and implementation of Strategic Energy Management, including consideration of associated non-energy benefits.
