Industrial Superior Energy Performance

Industrial Superior Energy Performance

The Industrial Superior Energy Performance (SEP) Accelerator is designed to demonstrate cost savings from implementing SEP enterprise-wide and ratepayer-funded energy efficiency programs for industrial facilities. Through the SEP ratepayer-funded Accelerator, partners including utilities and energy efficiency program administrators agree to work towards deployment of SEP to manufacturers across their service territories. Enterprise-wide offers partners are manufacturers implementing ISO 50001 and SEP across a corporation, business unit, or multiple plants.

Get Involved

Better Buildings programs host interactive webinars featuring a variety of topics exploring cost-effective ways to integrate energy savings into their daily building operations. 

Better Buildings SWAP
