Nine companies recently certified under the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Superior Energy Performance Program (SEP) have demonstrated an average energy performance improvement of 10% in the first 18 months of implementing SEP with an average payback of 1.7 years. These and other results were communicated in a paper presented at the July 2013 Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Industry hosted by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy and are now provided in a Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) report Assessing the Costs and Benefits of the Superior Energy Performance Program. The results lend considerable weight to the best practice theory of Systematic Energy Management.
