About The Strategic Energy Management (SEM) Offering

Strategic Energy Management

SEM is our long-term, whole facility, and campus approach. Offered through the PEP and HEEP programs, it provides no-cost services to achieve several goals:

  • Implement best practices around energy management
  • Improve the energy efficiency of your facilities
  • Work towards larger decarbonization goals
  • And save your department time and money

SEM extends the PEP and HEEP programs and allows your organization to delve further into energy management with ongoing support from both CLEAResult and your peers. SEM works to create lasting changes that serve your organization and your facility for ongoing energy savings and carbon reduction.

How Does it Work?

SEM offers no-cost services using a holistic, whole-facility approach, taking in building features and providing real solutions. SEM focuses on no- and low-cost energy-saving opportunities, including:

  • Behavioral changes: Simple improvements like lighting adjustments, checking set points, and making sure roof doors aren’t left open.
  • Retro-commissioning: Ensure that building systems such as heating, cooling, and variable frequency drives are calibrated and running to specifications.
  • Operations and maintenance: Improve building performance with routine maintenance like cleaning filters, changing coils, roof inspections and sealing air leaks.
