Northwest SEM Collaborative

Working together to further industrial efficiency

The Collaborative builds on the simple idea that the region can do more to further industrial Strategic Energy Management (SEM) together than any single utility, organization or association can do on its own.

Participants include a wide range of energy professionals from organizations including BC Hydro, Bonneville Power Administration, Energy Trust of Oregon, Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE), Idaho Power, PacificCorp, Puget Sound Energy, Snohomish PUD, U.S. Department of Energy Advanced Manufacturing Office, Cascade Energy, Ecova, EnerNoc, and CLEAResult.

This group meets regularly to discuss and share ideas on how to best guide energy-intensive industries in the Northwest in their efforts to achieve greater energy efficiency. Watch the video below to learn more:
