SEDAC helps facilities, communities, and agencies become more energy efficient by providing long-range energy planning. This may involve an in-depth energy assessment, economic analysis, and a detailed report to help you decide where to direct your efforts over the next five years.

SEDAC provides recommendations that help you prioritize energy efficiency strategies. We recommend implementing solutions that will achieve high energy savings at low cost. Consider implementing particular types of energy efficiency improvements across a range of buildings, rather than building by building. Large organizations may realize economies of scale by ordering materials and equipment in bulk, as well as reducing administrative overhead costs by implementing relatively few large projects as opposed to many small projects.
