Strategic Energy Management

We’re the SEM experts with over 1,500 facilities engaged since 2009.


What is SEM?

Strategic energy management (SEM) is a long-term approach to energy efficiency that includes setting goals, tracking progress, and reporting results. It is a living, evolving program that changes with time and energy demands. In taking on this process, you’ll commit to changing the way you use energy and empowering others to do the same.


An SEM program is an especially crucial part of EE efforts in large industrial, institutional, agricultural and commercial organizations, specifically those with yearly energy usage of three million kWh or greater.


Currently, we have:
