    Integrating Energy Efficiency & Renewable Electricity Integrating Energy Efficiency & Renewable Electricity Presentation Transcript

    • Integrating Energy Efficiency & Renewable Electricity El t i it Alliance t S Alli to Save E Energy Dr. Dan E. Arvizu Laboratory Director September 2010 NREL is a national laboratory of the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, operated by the Alliance for Sustainable Energy, LLC.
    • Smart Integration of Efficiency & Renewables Accelerating the Transition Buildings Industry Clean Affordable Secure Sustainable Grid Transportation Innovation for Our Energy Future
    • Efficiency as Part of a “Systems” View Community & Industrial Systems Integrated and Sustainable The Built Transportation Environment Systems Integrated Systems Sustainable Design Highly Efficient • Highly Efficient • Integrated Renewables Energy Fuel Flexible Efficiency Distributed & Utility-Scale Renewable Power Renewable Fuels Electricity Generation & Fuel Production Delivery Systems y Systems NATIONAL RENEWABLE ENERGY LABORATORY 3
    • Efficiency Opportunities U.S. Buildings Primary Energy Consumption Computers 4% Cooking 2% Cooking 2% Electronics 8% Ventilation 7% Refrigeration 4% Cooling 14% Commercial  Lighting 27% Water Heating 7% W t H ti 7% Industry Buildings Heating 13% 33% 18% Other 14% Computers 1% Cooking 5% Electronics 8% Wet Clean 7% Residential Refrigeration 8% Transportation Cooling 14% Buildings g Lighting 12% g t g % 28% Water Heating 13% 21% Heating 28% Other 4% Energy use from U.S. residential buildings could power all of France and Sources: U.S. DOE, Buildings Energy Data Book, 2009 and EIA , International Energy Statistics the UK for over one year NATIONAL RENEWABLE ENERGY LABORATORY
    • How Efficiency Leads to  H Effi i L d t More Renewable  More Renewable Generation:  NREL’s new  Research Support Facility Innovation for Our Energy Future
    • The building will achieve LEED Platinum rating but will use 50% less energy th if it were than built to current commercial codes Innovation for Our Energy Future
    • The RSF will increase NREL’s campus square footage by 60% but increase campus energy use by only 6% Innovation for Our Energy Future
    • The RSF’s highly efficient green data center will serve the entire laboratory campus and be a model for others Innovation for Our Energy Future
    • Is a living laboratory where researchers use real-time building performance data to study building energy use. Innovation for Our Energy Future
    • The RSF is a prototype for the future of p yp large-scale, ultra-efficient buildings It will change the way the commercial building industry views energy efficient, high performance office buildings… The reality of ultra-high efficiency buildings: Doable, affordable. Not a concept, but here p, today Innovation for Our Energy Future
    • Integrated Design Cost Transfer Transfer costs from mechanical and  electrical systems to building  architecture NATIONAL RENEWABLE ENERGY LABORATORY
    • NREL RSF Annual Energy Consumption Comparison p 60.0 55.0 50.0 50 0 45.0 40.0 35.0 30.0 u/sqft/Year Heating 25.0 20.0 kBtu 15.0 10.0 Lights 5.0 0.0 00 NREL RSF - ASHRAE - Baseline Proposed LIGHTS TASK LIGHTS SERVER ELEC SERVER COOL SERVER RM FAN PLUG LOADS SPACE HEATING SPACE COOLING PUMPS & AUX VENT FANS DOMEST HOT WATER EXT USAGE NATIONAL RENEWABLE ENERGY LABORATORY
    • Helping utilities with the  H l i tiliti ith th efficiency/renewable  efficiency/renewable generation nexus:  the  Energy Systems Integration  Facility F ilit Innovation for Our Energy Future
    • • The ESIF is planned to be an approximately 220,000-gross-sq. ft. facility p pp y , g q y specially designed to accommodate the critical engineering, testing, optimization, and verification research needed for integrated engineering systems development. • Integrated energy systems and testing technologies include energy efficiency, generation, storage, distribution, and utilization NATIONAL RENEWABLE ENERGY LABORATORY 14
