4 Colorado Potential Study Overview Presented by: KEMA

5 New Product Development Update Presented by: George Spargo

6 DSM Roundtable New Product Development Procedure Interested persons may submit new program ideas or proposed revisions to existing programs to the Company in writing (link below). The Company screens and prioritizes all new program ideas for further research and development. Within three months of receipt, the Company will evaluate written DSM program ideas in accordance with the screening process, and report results in written quarterly update. DSM DSM Website provides program idea idea submission forms at: at: Management/Pages/Home.aspx 6

7 Product Development Process Traditional Stage-Gate process that includes team or management review at key decision points: Ideation Framing Design Build Test Launch 7

8 Ideation Objectives Compile ideas for new products from those who are closest to the customers Describe the product concept Filter the most viable ideas that will progress to the framing stage. This stage begins by asking: What idea do you have that will solve a customer concern? Ideas from several sources and provides a brief explanation of the concept in the form of an Idea Napkin. 8

9 Framing Objective: Evaluate the market opportunity of new product ideas This stage begins by asking: What is the opportunity for this idea? The ultimate deliverable of this stage will be a Framing Score, which helps to quantify the value of the idea as compared to others to prioritize work. The information used to score the idea will help define project boundaries, and determine strategic fit from a business, technical and market perspective. Lists are grouped by gas, electric, business and residential. The primary gate decision here is: Does this concept merit spending more development resources? 9

10 Scoring Matrix in Framing Idea 1 Idea 2 Idea 3 TOTAL SCORE (117) # Criteria Weigh Rating rating score rating score rating score 1 Political Request Yes 2 8 Neutral 1 x 8 x 8 x 8 No 0 2 Steady State Growth Potential (GWh) 0 3 Steady State Growth Potential (MCF) 4 Applicable to multiple jurisdictions 5 Speed to Market 6 Longevity of offer (how long until becomes standard) 7 Competencies are in place to fulfill 8 Sales Cycle 9 Market Barriers (technological, press, market education ) 10 Potential Risks Internal (legal, environmental, regulatory, safety) 11 Outsourcing opportunities (nonscoring) High (>5 GWh) 3 Medium (2-5 GWh) 2 Low (<2 GWh) 1 High (>40,000 Dth) 3 x 18 x 18 Medium (10,000-40,000 Dth 2 x 12 Low (<10,000 Dth) states 3 2 states 2 x 8 x 8 x 8 1 state 1 Fast (< 3 months) 3 Average (3-12 months) 2 x 6 x 6 x 6 Slow > 12 months) 1 Long (> 5 years) 3 x 9 x 9 x 9 Medium (2-5 years) 2 Short (<2 years) 1 Definitely 3 x 9 x 9 Somewhat 2 x 6 Not at all 1 Short (<6 months) 3 Average (6-18 months) 2 x 4 x 4 x 4 Long (> 18 months) 1 Limited 3 x 6 Some 2 x 4 Many 1 x 2 Limited 3 x 6 x 6 Some 2 x 4 Many 1 Definitely x Somewhat x x Not at all 10

11 Design Objectives Refine and validate assumptions made in the Framing stage More clearly define the product and opportunity Process/Deliverables The process to obtain any legal approvals or meet any regulations begins here. The deliverables of this stage are high-level requirements, a product case (in certain situations) and a design-to-build presentation to management. The primary gate decision is: Should we commit the resources/dollars to build? 11

12 Build Objectives at this stage: All high-level requirements are broken down to detailed requirements Project plans are written in order to accomplish physical development of the product and systems. Preliminary launch planning also begins. The deliverables of this stage are a testable product (if applicable), approval from required legislative groups, appropriate contracts written and signed, personnel trained, and necessary collateral developed. The primary gate decision is, Is it ready to commit to testing and probable launch? 12

13 Test Many of our DSM products do not require a concept test, they just need to pass the benefit-to-cost tests which are done back in the design or build stages. User requirements, usage scenarios and new operational processes can be tested for flow-through. This is sometimes informally done in the Build Stage. The primary gate decision is, Are we ready to proceed with product launch? 13

14 Launch The process moves to launch phase once: Product, systems and processes have been tested/fixed/retested Personnel has been trained Collateral has been developed Objectives Stabilize all processes Transition the new product into product life cycle Execute launching the product The deliverables are a complete launch checklist, product case document (if applicable), and marketing plan The primary decision is, Is everything ready from beginning to end that will enable this product to be successful? 14

17 Passive Solar Spaces Design and construction features that capture solar energy for home heating Offsets gas or electric space heating Typical features include: Large southern glass exposure Limited non-southern glass exposure Sun shading to limit off-season heat gains Trombe wall mass thermal storage 17

18 Passive Solar Spaces- Performance & Economics Modeled with common CO new home HERS 100 Max savings = 18.4 Dth/yr (~18%); -235 kwh; => $160/yr Capital incremental $5, year life 30% Federal tax credit => $1,500 credit on $5,000 $10/Dth gas cost => $184/yr savings Simple payback = $3,500/ $160 => 22 yr Potential rebate => $500 (similar to HE Furnace $/%) Simple payback after rebate = $3,000/$160 = 19 yr 18

19 Solar Water Heating Domestic water heating using thermal collectors System: Collectors, pump, closed loop heating with non-toxic anti-freeze, storage tank, controls, alternative hot water heater, roof mounted System for one home for family of four Capital cost $3,000 - $5,000 Base use = 20 Dth/yr gas Solar Fraction = 0.6 => 12 Dth/yr saved 19

20 Solar Water Heating-Economics 20 year life 30% Federal tax credit => $900 credit on $3,000 $10/Dth gas cost => $120/yr savings Simple payback = $2,100/ $120 => 18 yr Potential rebate => $300 (similar to HW Htg $/%) Simple payback after rebate = $1,800/$120 = 15 yr Next Step: Do not go forward with current assumptions. 20

21 Ground-Source Heat Pumps Taps into the earth s relatively constant temperature. Moves heat from the home into the earth in the summer, and moves heat from the earth into the home in the winter. Underground piping loops are installed and heat is moved via water or brine pumped through the system. Provides O&M savings with low maintenance. Analysis considered only for cooling season, as heating season use results in fuel switching (increased electric use for decreased gas use). Looking at option for residential and small business prescriptive rebate. 21

22 Ground-Source Heat Pumps- Economics Residential capital costs range from $8,000-$10,000 Commercial capital costs can range from $400,000 to $2,300,000. Baseline is a 13 SEER refrigerated A/C unit 291 gen kwh saved and 0.44 gen kw saved on the cooling side per unit. TRC = tbd Next Step: Recommend moving forward with development 22

23 Whole House Ventilation Fans Used in climates with large day and night time temperature swings to reduce air conditioner use. Multiple California utilities have prescriptive rebates ranging from $75 to $250 per unit. Fan runs when outside temp is below AC set point. Typical unit is 1,000 CFM, uses watts. Energy savings range from 20% to 50% of AC use (330 to 790 kwh for average house). 23

24 Whole House Ventilation Fans- Economics 10 year life Installed costs: $750-$1,650 $0.10/kWh customer savings ($79/year) Customer simple payback = $750 / $79 => 9.5 yr TRC using most optimistic numbers (highest savings and lowest costs) = 0.29 Next Step: Do not go forward with current assumptions. 24

25 Automated Energy Audits Nearly paperless process for home energy auditing Automated: Enrollment (on-line), assignment to Auditor Data prep for Auditor name, address, energy history Field input via portable computer/pca Prescribed ECMs, analytics Some flexibility with custom conditions Automated analytics, formatting, presentation, print files File transfers to ReCAP, customer Billing preps data files 25

26 Automated Energy Audits - Benefits Uniformity of appearance, content, quality Searchable database for analytics, opportunities More competitive conditions for Auditors More audits, information, opportunities => more impacts ~ 2,000 audits/yr in MN & CO combined Efficiency of multiple data handling processes 26

27 Automated Energy Audits - Costs Find appropriate system (not known at this time) Develop own system $250k - $500k Sponsor development of custom system/ownership rights Pay per use of system developed or existing Next Step: Recommend moving forward with development 27
