Detroit Diesel Verifies $37 Million in Energy Savings with SEP

Daimler’s Detroit Diesel Corporation facility earned Platinum certification in the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Superior Energy Performance® (SEP™) program. The facility implemented a robust energy management system in compliance with ISO 50001 and used SEP to quantify its energy performance improvement. Through SEP, the facility demonstrated a 32.5% energy performance improvement and $37 million in energy cost savings over 10 years. These impressive energy and cost savings garnered attention and support from management, all the way up to Detroit Diesel’s parent company, Daimler, in Germany. The video describes how the automotive manufacturer manages energy and uses SEP to track progress, verify savings, and build confidence for future investments in resource efficiency measures that can stimulate growth and create jobs.

Achieving the Three C’s of Measuring and Reporting Energy Efficiency Improvements: Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency

Achieving the Three C’s of Measuring and Reporting Energy Efficiency Improvements: Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency

Because energy savings represent the absence of energy use, it is impossible to directly measure energy efficiency impacts; the credibility of the reported data is only as sound as the measurement and verification (M&V) processes, methodologies, and data that are used. Using the three C’s—Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency—builds confidence in the M&V processes, methodologies, and protocols, and thus in the reported results.
