Resource Efficiency Management (REM) Programs

Since 2001, Sain Engineering Associates, Inc. (SEA) has been the leading small business for providing Resource Efficiency Management (REM) services to federal agencies worldwide.

These full-time, onsite energy professionals help to increase the effectiveness of government energy programs by identifying energy conservation measures to reduce energy and water usage. Our conservation measures are accomplished through the implementation of cost-effective programs and practices derived from a review of available data and processes.

The REM support to the 99th is fantastic. The team is working on very complex issues and providing us with technically sound recommendations. Most importantly, they are looking forward and seeking opportunities to improve operations. SEA REMs are valued professionals who are fully integrated into our team providing the technical knowledge and support our staff simply doesn’t have.
