Evaluation of Energy Savings Resulting from Strategic Energy Management (SEM) for NEEA

The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) has been working with the Northwest Food Processors Association to rally members to achieve energy savings through Strategic Energy Management. In 2013, Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) stopped active support of Strategic Energy Management (SEM) programs in Northwest food processor facilities. After exiting, NEEA began monitoring activities associated with diffusion of the program outside of these facilities. To support this monitoring activity, the Northwest Food Processors Association (NWFPA) agreed to share annual data from its members. NEEA selected Energy 350 to quantify the resulting energy savings.  This was done using a top down regression model approach to normalize energy use for variables such as weather, production, etc.
