Utilities at the cutting edge of DSM planning are implementing Strategic Energy Management (SEM) programs. By equipping C&I customers with powerful tools that help them strategically manage their energy use, utilities realize significant EE savings and deepen their customer relationships.
MEEA, in collaboration with members Xcel Energy and EnerNOC, presented this webinar on SEM best practices and opportunities for Midwest utilities, featuring a case study with Xcel Energy.
On this webinar we discussed:
1. The Value of SEM to Utilities – Understanding how SEM drives increased energy savings from behavioral improvements, more reliable savings from existing capital projects, and deeper customer engagement.
2. Best Practices in SEM Program Design – EnerNOC SEM Practice Lead Chad Gilless will discuss core SEM concepts and present common configurations and options that drive utility program results.
3. Xcel Energy’s Industrial Process Efficiency – Xcel Energy Program Manager Kerry Klemm will present a case study of an award-winning SEM program, the Xcel Energy Process Efficiency program.
