SWEEP is a key part of two statewide industrial energy efficiency programs in Colorado and Utah that complement existing utility demand-side management (DSM) programs. In addition SWEEP promotes strong and effective utility industrial efficiency programs throughout the southwest region.
In Colorado, SWEEP leads and coordinates the Colorado Industrial Energy Challenge (CIEC), a program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Colorado Energy Office (CEO), which encourages large and medium-size industrial facilities to set a five-year energy efficiency goal and to track and report progress towards the goal. The program offers public recognition from the Governor's Office, networking events, and training opportunities.
In Utah, SWEEP is part of the Utah Industrial Energy Challenge Program, which is similar to the CIEC program. Utah's program is led by Utah Clean Energy (UCE).
SWEEP is also taking an active role in promoting utility industrial DSM programs in the region, by facilitating sharing of best practices between utilities, and by discussing possible program enhancements directly with the utility industrial DSM program managers.
