Strategic Energy Management (SEM) is a system of organizational practices, policies, and processes that creates persistent energy savings by integrating energy management into business practices – just like you would with quality assurance, safety, or productivity. SEM focuses on changes in daily operations that engage staff at all levels of an organization in energy efficiency activities.
Northwest utilities and SEM practitioners recognize the need for a set of common resources and best practices to guide businesses in strategically managing their energy. As a result, the region works together to build market capability, awareness and demand for SEM through SEM Hub and the NW SEM Collaborative. Together, we are improving efficiency via reliable savings for participants around the region.
