Northeast Strategic Energy Management Collaborative 2020: Pathways Towards Integration
Commercial and industrial sectors in the Northeast region account for roughly 45 percent of energy use and carbon emissions. In recent years, Strategic Energy Management (SEM) has served to manage this energy use, and to drive operational and behavioral improvements. The SEM pathway encourages cost savings, decarbonization, and the overall integration of energy decisions into general business operations. The Northeast Strategic Energy Management (SEM) Collaborative 2020 will provide an opportunity to learn and participate in discussions about the practices, policies, and processes that contribute to continued SEM success in the Northeast region. Opportunities for integrating SEM with other important energy efficiency programs and activities will be explored with key stakeholders, including energy efficiency program administrators, implementation experts, and federal program representatives.
