# Energy Baseline Methodologies for Industrial Facilities

The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) contracted with EnerNOC Utility Solutions to provide definition to the process for establishing and documenting energy baselines for industrial facilities. Energy baselines are foundational to a robust energy management program, however, industrial facility energy baseline methodologies are neither well known nor consistently implemented. The paper describes a straightforward six-step process suitable for use by facility staff. Using this process facilities can effectively monitor and manage their energy performance.
