Industrial Strategic Energy Management


By focusing on people and processes rather than just equipment upgrades, ComEd's Strategic Energy Management (SEM) program motivates employees to consider behavioral and operational changes that lead to long-lasting energy savings without significant capital investments! The program includes a year-long series of workshops and coaching sessions focused on identifying and implementing operational and behavioral changes. Energy models are created for selected sites to monitor energy performance over the program year.

Energy Savings Through Engagement


SEM helps clients achieve energy savings by engaging the entire facility. The process is designed to:

  • Establish organizational commitment

  • Plan and implement energy efficiency best practices and projects, from no-cost opportunities to larger capital investments

  • Measure, monitor, and report on savings

In addition to the direct cost savings from reduced energy use, ComEd also offers various incentives for participating companies.
