3 Business Energy Efficiency Customer s View Roy M. Palk, Esq. August 29, 2012

4 Presentation Segments 1. Overview of Business Energy Use 2. Retail Billing Components 3. Usage Management Techniques 4. Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) 5. Energy Efficiency Standards 6. Net Metering 7. Monitoring and Verifying Results 8. Summary

5 Overview of Business Energy Use Manufacturing Industry Sector Examples (By NAICS Codes) Energy Intensive Manufacturing: Metals, Paper, Chemicals, Petroleum Non-Intensive Manufacturing: Electronics, components, appliances Balance of Manufacturing Sectors: Apparel, Printing, Wood products, Misc. Mfg.

6 Key Terms Related to C&I Energy Consumption Energy Intensity - the quantity of energy required per unit output or activity, so that using less energy to produce a product reduces the intensity Energy Efficiency - improves when a given level of service is provided with reduced amounts of energy inputs or services are enhanced for a given amount of energy input

7 Retail Billing Components 1. Demand total amount of power consumed within a given time frame, e.g. 15 minutes (related to capacity investment) 2. Energy KWH consumed 3. Facilities Charge May be related to dedicated facilities invested by the utility to serve a particular load

8 Retail Billing Components - Continued 4.Minimum Bill a monthly amount billed to the customer to cover the fixed costs of the utility such as when a location is not in production 5. Other Charges Taxes, Environmental Surcharges, Fuel Adjustment Charges, etc.

9 Usage Management Techniques 1. Practices depend on the type and schedule of production 2. Staging to control the demand (see time interval reference above) 3. Power Factor Correction (capacitors and PF corrected motors) 4. Waste heat recovery, self generation 5. Renegotiating Power Contracts to fit changed production schedules

10 Research Incentives 1. Federal and State Tax Incentives cfm 2. Renewable energy credits (create and sell of purchase to offset emissions) 3. Net Metering

11 Energy Efficiency Standards 1. Check state, federal and industry standards/requirements for new equipment installations ASHRAE 90.1 for commercial heating and air conditioning 2. The Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA) established Federal energy conservation standards for commercial heating, air conditioning, and water heater equipment (in re to number 1 above)

12 Monitoring and Verifying Results 1. Performance Contracting split benefit approach 2. Identifying particularly large users of energy with in a facility and installing controls 3. Virtually real-time dashboard monitoring 4. Controlling energy demand against the utility s tariff, TOU demand and energy tariffs

13 Summary 1. Energy intensity is lessening while energy efficiency is increasing due to a slower economy and better equipment. (EIA) 2. A shift in new power generation, resulting in higher power costs, will place more emphasis on energy efficiency.

16 Cost Drivers In the Changing Utility Environment August 29,

17 Industry Overview By 2030, the electric industry will need to make a total investment of approximately $1.5 trillion Includes generation, transmission and distribution by IOUs, coops and public power entities Investments will be made to: Replace aging plant Respond to environmental regulations Improve reliability Integrate renewable into the mix Meet new customer expectations August 29,

18 Coal Plant Retirements Total Projected Coal Retirements: 41 GW Source: Energy Velocity, 2011 IRPs August 29,

19 Industry Overview Transforming America's Power Industry: The Investment Challenge , the Brattle Group prepared for the Edison Foundation August 29,

20 Industry Overview New, complex regulations in multiple areas: EPA Environmental regulations Mandatory reliability standards Financial regulations stemming from Dodd-Frank Renewable Mandates New era of integrated resource planning RTO requirements Legislative changes New regulations drive increased compliance requirements and increase costs??? $$ $ August 29,

21 2015 Smart Meter Penetration (in % of users) Total US AMI Penetration: 8.7% 13 million meters (2010) 65 million meters (2015) Source: FERC 2010 Advanced Metering and Demand Response Survey, Institute for Energy Efficiency August 29,

22 Industry Overview Electronic age has increased focus on interruptions and need for improved reliability Time of use Competing suppliers Green Power Supply Load driven solutions Pay as you go Cost focused in a time when rates are rising Energy Efficiency GE Nucleus Changing Customer needs and expectations August 29,

23 Summary We are experiencing a rising cost environment driven by multiple pressures on a capital intensive industry Over the next 20 years, we will see growth in plant, that will be subject to risks in capital cost, financing cost, new regulations At the same time, customer expectations are changing, and new elements are being introduced on the load side which can create uncertainties August 29,

24 Energy Audits August 29,

25 Understand Your Regions Cost Drivers and Cost Structure CAISO $12 B Other WECC $35 B MISO/PJM West $77 B SPP $19 B NYISO $4 B PJM $18 B ISO-NE $11 B ERCOT $5 B Southeast $2 B Total Projected Transmission Investment through 2030: $240B - $320B (2011$) $12B - $16B per year Map shows only projects with minimum cost of $100M or greater. -Of $180 B shown here, about $70B are competing (overlapping) projects -Does not include annual baseline transmission for reliability Source: The Brattle Group, Energy Velocity August 29,

26 Energy Audits Evaluate Each Component of Your Power Bill Facilities Charge Demand Charge Energy Charge Power Factor Penalty Other Cost August 29,
