3 1.0 Introduction 1.1 Overview Ontario Regulation 397/11 of the Green Energy Act was published in August, This regulation requires all municipalities to develop and publish greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption summary annually on or before July 1 st of each year. In addition, a Corporate Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan (CECDMP) must be completed once every 5 years, the first plan to be published on or before July 1, In response to this requirement, the Town of Orangeville (the Town) has developed a CECDMP (this Plan) to formalize and consolidate its energy management efforts. This plan is specifically intended to help the Town meet a number of objectives, including improving environmental performance, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, lowering energy consumption, improving accountability to taxpayers and reducing operating costs. It also fits within the Town s broader planning context, complementing the Town of Orangeville Strategic Priority Framework and Sustainability Strategy. This plan is endorsed by the Town of Orangeville s senior management team. Energy management has become increasingly important across Ontario municipalities as energy prices rise and interest in reducing our environmental impact continues to be a priority. Responsible energy management planning will allow the Town to develop energy reduction strategies within the constraints of existing operating budgets. Ontario s Long Term Energy Plan predicts that electricity costs will rise an average of 20%, or roughly 4% per year, over the next five years. Natural gas prices, although relatively low compared to historical averages, have begun to rise significantly as illustrated by recent rate increases of in spot market prices through the winter of 2013/2014. This Plan includes the following key elements: A clear corporate vision and policy that includes goals, objectives and strategic priorities for managing energy use. A description of the Town s energy baseline with a summary of past successes and present initiatives. A specific, actionable and prioritized inventory of energy conservation and demand management measures which includes associated estimated cost and energy savings information. The Town intends to revisit and update this Plan every year and publish a revised, endorsed plan five years, as required under the regulation. Page 1 of 30

4 1.2 Scope and Development of the Plan The plan was developed by members of the Town s staff with support and direction from Blue Sky Energy Engineering & Consulting, and I.B.Storey Professional Energy Solutions. The development involved three primary steps: 1. Assessing the Town s current energy consumption and energy management practices 2. Establishing a vision and objectives for energy conservation and demand management 3. Defining measurable and specific actions to achieve the objectives Understanding how the Town currently manages its energy was necessary before a vision for improvement could be defined. Existing energy management efforts were assessed against several broad energy management categories in order to recognize the Town s achievements and inform the development of this Plan s strategic objectives. These energy management categories included: Energy Management Policy, Goals and Commitment; Resources and Accountability; Investment Decisions and Purchasing; Training, Capacity Development & Awareness; Energy Monitoring & Tracking; Opportunity Identification & Project Delivery; and Project and Program Management Once the vision and strategic pillars of the plan were defined, a detailed list of projects was assembled with estimated cost and energy consumption savings figures. The projects were taken from several recently completed facility energy audits, as well as from measures identified by the staff members. The detailed action plan is summarized in the final section of this report and the detailed list of projects can be found in Appendix A. The requirements of Regulation 397/11 of the Green Energy Act specify that the plan is to cover only the built environment (facilities that are heated) which are currently owned and operated by the Town. The full list of Town facilities included in the plan can be found in Table 1 (next page). Street lights, as an exception, have been included in this plan as they are a significant consumer of energy. The sections of the document are presented in the following manner: Ontario s Energy Marketplace The Corporate Energy Conservation Policy The Energy Conservation Team Our Successes Orangeville s Energy Baseline The Energy Conservation Action Plan Page 2 of 30

6 2.0 Ontario s Energy Marketplace 2.1 Energy Supply and Pricing Forecasts for Ontario In 2013, the province of Ontario had a total electricity supply mix of terawatt-hours (TWh) 2, including avoided energy use as a result of conservation. Looking forward, supply requirements are expected to increase by approximately 20% over the next two decades. Acknowledging that energy efficiency is the cheapest source of new energy supply, Ontario s 2013 Long- Term Energy Plan 3 places a strong emphasis on conservation and demand management to avoid adding new generation to the grid. For example: In 2013, conservation represented 5%, or 8.6 TWh, of Ontario s total electricity supply; Over the next 20 years, the Province expects to offset almost all growth in electricity demand through energy efficiency programs and improved codes and standards. This represents a conservation forecast of 30 TWh, or 16% of Ontario s total electricity supply mix by Ontario municipalities are expected to contribute to this conservation target by developing energy management plans and taking action to improve their energy performance. Electricity costs are expected to increase over 20%, or roughly 4% per year, over the next five years. This further supports the need for Ontario municipalities to carefully manage their electricity use. Natural gas prices, although relatively low compared to historical averages, have begun to rise as illustrated by significant increases in spot market prices through the winter of 2013/2014. As a result, Enbridge Gas applied to the Ontario Energy Board for a rate increase of nearly 30%, which was approved in April Although this rate may be subject to change, any upward trend in gas costs will impact municipalities bottom lines. 2.2 Green Energy Act and Regulation 397/11 Ontario Regulation 397/11 of the Green Energy Act was developed to help public agencies, including municipalities, understand and better manage their energy consumption. Under the regulation, the Town is required to develop and publish a five-year corporate energy conservation and demand management plan by July 1, 2014, and update this plan every five years thereafter. Energy conservation and demand management plans are required to include: 2 One Terawatt (tw) = Watts (W) = 10 9 Kilowatts (kw) 3 Ministry of Energy.

8 3.0 The Policy 3.1 The Corporate Energy Management Policy Our Commitment Recognizing our responsibility as leaders of the Town of Orangeville, we are committed to being conscientious stewards of our energy and natural resources. This commitment is beneficial to the environment and both the health and economic wellbeing of the community. The Town of Orangeville is committed to providing the required staff and resources to continuously reduce energy consumption and the related Greenhouse Gas emissions. In addition, we are committed to using energy efficient practices and new technologies throughout our facilities and operations. Our Vision Be a Municipal leader in energy conservation and management of greenhouse gases, spending taxpayer s funds wisely and protecting the environment while delivering outstanding public service to the community. Our Goal Reduce Energy Consumption by 4% over the base year of 2012 by Our Strategic Objectives / Pillars A. Training and Capacity Development B. Energy Monitoring and Tracking C. Energy Efficient Purchasing D. Energy Efficient Standards Page 6 of 30

9 3.2 Overview of the Strategic Objectives PILLAR A: Training and Capacity Development Develop a training program which ensures employees have the appropriate knowledge of energy use and conservation. Improving the skills of the Orangeville team will help empower employees to support the development of a culture of conservation. The training will focus in two key areas: Energy Skills Training (technical training for specific employees) Energy Awareness Training (general training for all staff) PILLAR B: Energy Monitoring and Targeting The practice of energy monitoring and targeting (M&T) provides a systematic approach to gaining and maintaining control over energy consumption, through measurement and analysis, followed by focused actions. The Town will establish indicators for energy conservation that will enable monitoring, reporting and continuous improvement. A system for reporting energy consumption data has been purchased and will be used such that the data can be integrated into existing management processes, planning and budget development. PILLAR C: Energy Efficient Purchasing Develop guidelines for Energy Efficient Purchasing to ensure the acquisition of energy efficient equipment, supplies, and appliances. Energy efficiency will also be incorporated into the large capital purchasing process through the use of life cycle costing. PILLAR D: Energy Efficient Standards Develop Standards for Building operation and control to ensure the best practices are being employed to minimize energy consumption, while maintaining optimal working conditions for the staff and public. Maintenance practices for process equipment and the facilities will also be reviewed and updated to ensure efficient and consistent operation. The new Standards and Operating Procedures will be introduced to the organization through a specifically designed training program. Page 7 of 30

10 4.0 The Energy Conservation Team The Town of Orangeville s Energy Conservation Team has provided the leadership required to achieve significant energy conservation savings across the built environment. The team, described below, will continue to be responsible for delivering the plan s vision, objectives and goals as well as maintaining the Town s focus on energy efficiency in the years to come. Energy Conservation Sponsor: The Energy Conservation Sponsor is responsible for legitimizing the Plan s high-level goals and objectives, keeping abreast of major project activities, and approving resources and funding for the team and its approved projects. This position is ultimately responsible for securing spending authority and resources for the Plan and is therefore the highest ranking management person on the Energy Conservation Team. Finance Champion: The role of the Finance Champion is to provide clear guidance, assistance and support to the Energy Conservation Team on internal and external funding mechanisms and to include the team in relevant decision-making and budget discussions. The Finance Champion will support the use of life cycle costing and discounted cash flow-based assessments for capital projects and will include energy efficiency in procurement criteria where relevant. In addition the Finance Champion will ensure that suppliers offer energy efficient alternatives/options where available and include energy criteria/performance in service contracts. Energy Management Champion: The Energy Management Champion has direct knowledge of the Town s major energy-using facilities and assets and is responsible for developing and maintaining the focus for the Energy Conservation Team. Their role is to coordinate meetings, set agendas, and delegate and manage tasks related to the Energy Conservation Team. This person also helps create and own the vision for the Plan and will help the Plan to maintain momentum, particularly if barriers arise. Page 8 of 30

11 Corporate Energy Conservation Team: The Energy Conservation Team functions on a strategic level to set expectations for each of the facilities, to develop metrics for tracking overall energy improvement, and to build accountability for energy management activities. In addition, this cross-functional team has direct responsibility for the consumption of energy within their respective departments. As a group, the team supports and monitors energy management initiatives (processes, programs, and projects) at the various facilities and across the corporation. Page 9 of 30

12 5.0 Our Successes 5.1 Completed Energy Conservation Measures The Town has completed a number of energy conservation projects over the last ten years which have contributed significantly to energy savings. The projects range from lighting and HVAC retrofits to new thermostats and building controls. A list of over 55 completed energy conservation measures can be found below in Table 2.

15 6.0 Orangeville s Energy Baseline 6.1 Orangeville s Energy Baseline An energy baseline has been compiled to provide a quantitative reference case for comparing the Town s future energy performance. Energy consumption data for 2012 were collected from Orangeville Hydro, Hydro One and Enbridge Gas for each of the Town s facilities, its water and sewage facilities and street lighting accounts. The resulting data set is representative of the Town s current level of energy performance, however, it has not been corrected for yearly weather variations. Table 3 below, presents the Town s baseline energy data by fuel type and in aggregate, expressed in equivalent kilowatt hours (ekwh). The energy consumption figures shown in this table include the facilities listed in Section 1.2 but exclude some smaller accounts including outdoor park lighting, energy used by facilities that are not heated etc. In 2012, the Town s accounts included in this plan consumed 21,483,274 ekwh and were responsible for 2,980 tonnes of associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Approximately two fifths of the energy requirements for the Town of Orangeville are met by natural gas; the primary heating source for most Town facilities. The remaining three fifths (60%) are met by electricity. Page 13 of 30

Please note that street lighting is not shown on this table but would represent 1.4 (10 6 ) kwh for the FIGURE 3: Facility 2012 Energy Consumption (Annual ekwh) Water Pollution Control Plant Well #5 and 5A Town Hall Operations Centre Well #12 (Water Treatment Plant) Dudgeon Reservoir ( and wellhouses for 8C and 8B) Mill Street Library Well #6 Fire Hall South Sector Reservoir Well #7 Well #10 Well 9A/B - Raven Court Well Well #11 Well #10 (Water Treatment Plant) Well #2 Town Building Buena Vista Sewage Pumping Station Young Court Pumping Station Sandringham Lift Station Energy Use by Location (Annual ekwh) Millions Annual ekwh The Recreational Centre is by far the largest consumer, using approximately 7.5 million ekwh per year (representing 61% of the total consumption for the Facilities account centre); The Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) is second, using close to 4.8 million ekwh per year (representing over 60% of the Water and Sewage account centres); The, Wells 5/5A and Town Hall, are third, fourth and fifth, using approximately 2.9 million, 0.9 million and 0.8 million ekwh annually. To put Figure 3 into perspective, it is helpful to compare the top consuming facilities to average benchmarks in Ontario s municipal sector. Figure 4 illustrates the energy intensities (ekwh/ft 2 ) of the Page 15 of 30

18 Town s major facilities ordered from worst (left) to best (right), compared to average benchmarks. The lower the Energy Intensity, the more energy efficient the building, as this is a measure of energy consumption per square foot of conditioned space. The benchmarking data is drawn from Local Authority Services Energy Performance Benchmarking of Ontario s Municipal Sector report. FIGURE 4: Facility Energy Intensity Benchmarks Benchmarks: Facility Energy Intensity (ekwh/ft 2 ) Energy Intensity (ekwh/ft2) Recreation Centre Tony Rose Memorial Town Hall Operations Centre Fire Hall Mill Street Library Town Building 2012 Actual Building Energy Intensity Average Benchmark Energy Intensity The majority of the Town facilities perform very well against other municipal districts and this is in part due to the retrofit work that has already been completed conservation team. The facilities shown in Figure 4 can be categorized into two groups: Better than the Average Benchmark: The Tony Rose, Operations Centre, Fire Hall, Mill Street Library, Town Building have better than average energy intensities (lower than the average benchmark). Worse than Average Benchmark: and Town Hall have worse than average energy intensities (higher than the average benchmark). Page 16 of 30

19 6.2 Current 2014 Energy Procurement and Pricing The Town spent almost $1.7 million dollars in 2012 (baseline year) on energy across all its account centres. The current 2014 electricity and natural gas pricing has risen substantially. The 2014 the rates are summarized in the sections below. Electricity: Electricity is delivered by both Orangeville Hydro and Hydro One. The majority of Town s accounts fall under one of two rate categories: General Service Less than 50 kw: Monthly Fixed Charge = $36.49 Electricity Consumption Charge (Time of Use) = /kwh Regulatory, Debt-retirement = /kwh Global Adjustment = varies (charged per kwh consumed) General Service 50 kw to 4,999 kw (Please note that this service includes a charge for Demand): Monthly Service Charge = $ Demand Charge (shown as Delivery on bill) = ~$6.00/kW Electricity Consumption Charge the large accounts fall into one of the two following categories that varies based on market pricing: o Weighted Average Market Price (WAP) o Hourly Ontario Energy Pricing (HOEP) Regulatory, Debt-retirement = /kwh Global Adjustment = varies (charged per kwh consumed) Natural Gas: The Town s natural gas is supplied by Enbridge Gas and most accounts fall within RATE 6 Commercial and Industrial. The rate breakdown for July 1 st, 2014 is shown below: Customer Charge = $70/month Natural Gas Charge = /m 3 Delivery from Enbridge to the Orangeville Facility: Block 1 (to 500m 3 ) = /m 3 Block 2 ( m 3 ) = /m 3 Block 3 ( m 3 ) = /m 3 Block 4 ( ,050m 3 ) = /m 3 Block 5 (13,051m3 28,300m 3 ) = /m 3 Transportation to Enbridge = /m 3 Page 17 of 30

20 Cost Adjustment = /m 3 This translates to a variable charge of approximately to per m 3 of natural gas consumed. Page 18 of 30

21 7.0 The Energy Conservation Action Plan 7.1 Action Plan List A critical part of any plan is the detailed list of specific actions needed to achieve the desired goals and objectives. The Town of Orangeville has developed a key project list which will help ensure the Town meets the energy reduction goals set out in the Corporate Energy Management Policy (section 3.0). The plan has been divided into four sections to match the four pillars of the Policy: Pillar 1: Training, Capacity Development and Awareness Pillar 2: Energy Monitoring & Targeting Pillar 3: Energy Efficient Purchasing Pillar 4: Energy Efficient Standards The detailed list of project included in the plan, which covers a period from July 2014 to June 2019, can be found in Appendix A. 7.2 Schedule and Forecast The specific projects from the Action Plan (Appendix A) have been summarized with scheduled delivery dates. Using the schedule as a baseline, a cumulative savings graph has been generated to show forecasted annual savings from the conservation measures over time. Please see Figure 5 (next page). It is projected that over $190,000 of annual avoided energy cost will be saved once the projects have been completed. It should be noted that the projections have been calculated in 2014 dollars and do not include expected rises in energy costs. For this reason, the estimate is most likely conservative. The projects which result in the largest savings are in three different departments. The retrofit of the street lighting to LED, the lighting upgrade to both Arenas, and the lighting upgrades at the Waste Water Treatment Plant. Additional projects are underway at the WPCP that will save significant electricity consumption however they have not yet been quantified and therefore have not been included in the plan.
