Strategic Energy Management

Strategic Energy Management—or SEM—is our holistic approach to managing energy usage, with a focus on continuous efficiency improvements that enable heightened facility performance and increased cost savings.

SEM changes the way entire facilities use energy—for the better

With Strategic Energy Management, our focus is on simple and accessible low- to no-cost energy practices. SEM is designed to create a collective culture of continuous efficiency improvement—from plant floor workers to top management and leadership. Beyond energy efficiency gains, our approach improves productivity, product quality, and overall facility operations both in commercial spaces and industrial facilities.

The SEM process empowers facility teams, managers, and staff to impact energy consumption through behavioral and operational changes. Our people-centric approach enables us to build roadmaps to success that engage company staff on all levels, encouraging them to collect accurate operational information, decision-making criteria, and energy utilization information. Thanks to our industry-leading experience executing SEM programs nationwide, we understand the needs of utilities and end-use consumers backwards and forwards. Our program is equipped to deliver on energy savings, cost reductions, and environmental benefits with every implementation.

Our proven methodology is designed for seamless integration with existing initiatives, including Six Sigma, kaizen and ISO 9000.
