Strategic Energy Management (SEM) Consulting
SEM is about reducing your energy intensity by putting in place continual improvement processes to lower your energy consumed per square foot or per unit of production. All forms of SEM start with understanding or developing your energy policy. Once the policy is set, the next step is often to conduct a thorough energy assessment. Depending on your level of commitment and desire, this assessment can cover your entire facility and put the building blocks in place for SEM, or can be specific to a process or group of processes that is being considered for an upgrade.

We consider all types of energy improvement part of an SEM program and view the process as a pyramid, with SEM as the foundation. As you climb the pyramid, energy management improves with new processes and procedures in place for sustained year-over-year savings.
Any building or industrial facility can decide how important energy is to their bottom line and begin working on SEM. Our approach is to meet our clients’ needs using a mix of methods, processes, tools, trainings, consulting and site visits. We offer a variety of energy services to help you get started.
