Multifamily housing, comprising both owners and unit occupants, presents a unique challenge in the world of energy efficiency. Strategic Energy Management (SEM) is an innovative approach to saving energy, focusing on engaging coaching and collaborative group workshops, which has been successfully deployed in various commercial sectors. In collaboration with Madison Gas & Electric, this pilot launched in summer 2021 and will continue through 2023.
Key successes of the pilot included:
1) Fostering stronger relationships between utility and customers.
2) The data modeling and support provided by the coaches was well received and will likely result in additional savings.
Aspects of the pilot will be incorporated into the existing Multifamily program offering.
