Northwest Industrial 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 Triple Point Energy.

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:

An Energy Management Information System (EMIS) is a software tool that stores, analyzes, and displays energy consumption data. The number of commercially-available EMIS tools has increased dramatically over the past ten years, as have the analytical and reporting capabilities of the tools.

Picking your way through the options is complex, especially when the software may need to be accompanied by hardware updates for data gathering. Organizations need to determine how to prepare themselves to select and use the right tool.
