The Michigan Energy Forum will explore new developments in Residential Energy Management, exploring the recent explosion of commercially available technologies and firms offering them to consumers. While commercial energy management is a multi-billion dollar industry, residential energy management has lagged far behind. Three years ago, the few consumers who were interested in residential energy management had to buy hundreds of dollars worth of home automation controls from niche online retailers unless they were lucky enough to participate in pilot programs offered by electrical utility companies testing "smart home" and "demand response" programs. Today, television commercials invite consumers to lease the devices they need to control smart lights, plugs, thermostats and appliances including washers, dryers, thermostats, and water heaters, all for a flat monthly fee from firms such Cable TV giant Comcast, home security giant ADT, and new home automation firms such as Vivint. The MEF will explore these and other technologies that are now, or may soon be, commercially available to help manage and reduce, residential energy consumption.

Transcript

  • 1. Michigan Energy Forum: Energy Management Technologies September 12, 2013
  • 2. Demand Response Capable Products Jump-starting the Smart Grid Tom Catania Executive in Residence Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise
  • 3. 3 0% 20% 40% 60% 80% 100% 0% 20% 40% 60% 80% 100% Pe rce ntage of Ye ar LoadFactor(%) Electric Generation Distribution A sset 5% 5% = ~400 hrs/yr 75% 90% (8,760 hrs) distribution generation VALUE OF DEMAND RESPONSE: LOWER PEAK DEMAND REDUCES INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS 25% of distribution & 10% of generation assets (transmission is similar), worth of 100s of billions of dollars, are needed less than 400 hrs/year! Hourly Loads as Fraction of Peak, Sorted from Highest to Lowest
  • 4. 4 FERC’s estimated 20 percent reduction in peak demand “if realized, can reduce significantly the number of power plants needed to meet peak demand and thereby reduce carbon emissions by as much as 1.2 billion tons of carbon annually…” Cutting demand by a few minutes or seconds also could let the U.S. grid cheaply incorporate renewable sources like wind and solar that otherwise would need backup from plants that stayed idle most of the time…If the electrical grid were 5% more efficient it could displace the equivalent of 42 coal-fire power plants. Jon Wellinghoff, Chairman, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), testimony before the Committee on Environment and Public Works, United States Senate, August 2009 The Smart Grid empowers consumers to control their own carbon footprints. North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), “Electric Industry Concerns on the Reliability Impacts of Climate Change Initiatives," November 2008 Don’t take my word for it:
  • 5. What does a smart/connected appliance do? • It knows what time of day it is • By default it performs a variety of functions outside of peak periods – Defrosting of a refrigerator – Washing dishes – Washing or drying clothes – Self –cleaning an oven • It educates consumers about their product’s energy use and gives them options and explains the consequences • It allows for remote monitoring and controlling of a product • It provides one touch energy management • It can interpret and react to information about and from a utility • It leaves the decision about product operation in the hands of the consumer 13 September 2013 5
  • 6. 6 Key Policy Elements Needed to Drive Ubiquitous Smart Appliances- 5% Allowance against Energy Star level for demand response capable appliance  Manufacturer Product Cost Savings Sufficient to Materially Defray Cost of Adding Demand Response Capability – 5% Allowance Against Energy Star  Energy Star is a Voluntary Program with High Public Recognition and Flexibility  This allowance was a lynch-pin to achieving voluntary agreement to higher efficiency standards  Natural connection between this new connected appliance capability and utility consumer appliance rebates, because system benefits now even greater than traditional individual product efficiency  Can be readily integrated with National Peak Demand Reduction Target and Integrates well with national efforts to expand renewables and growing addition of electric vehicles 13 September 2013 The Size of the Prize is 300 gigawatts of peak demand reduction and a substantial fraction of that total in daily callable demand that can be served through episodic renewables
  • 7. 7 This is Real!  April 29, 2013 Whirlpool Corporation Reaffirms Commitment to Smart Home Solutions Flagship brand puts home management in the palm of your hand with smart appliances  BENTON HARBOR, Mich., April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global appliance leader Whirlpool Corporation (NYSE: WHR) continues its legacy of leadership in sustainability with the launch of a line of smart appliances with 6th Sense Live™ technology. The company's flagship Whirlpool brand will make smart home management a reality this month in the Chicagoland area with the release of a suite of smart appliances along with a free mysmartappliances app which is available in the iTunes app store now. 13 September 2013
  • 8. EPA has just completed the Connected Refrigerator Specification and Test Procedures that must be met to earn the 5% allowance Other appliances and products will follow 13 September 2013
  • 9. ENERGY STORAGE
  • 10. 0 200 400 600 800 1000 2012 2017 2022 2027 2032 2037 QuadrillionBTU World Energy Demand ENERGY DEMAND WILL GROW MORE THAN 50% OVER THE NEXT 30 YEARS. Source: www.eia.gov
  • 11. EXISTING ELECTRIC GRIDS ARE AGING AND BECOMING LESS RELIABLE.
  • 12. 2013: VENEZUELA LOSES 70% OF ITS POWER 2012: HURRICANE SANDY AFFECTS 8M IN N.E. USA : DROUGHT & FAILURES AFFECT 620M IN INDIA : STORMS AFFECT 3.8M IN MIDWESTERN USA : MUNITIONS ACCIDENT LEAVES CYPRUS DARK 2011: 9M ARE LEFT WITHOUT POWER IN CHILE : 5M IN CALIFORNIA & ARIZONA LOSE POWER : HURRICANE IRENE LEAVES 5M IN DARK : 53M BRAZILIANS ARE LEFT WITHOUT POWER IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN HERE
  • 13. The Need for Energy Storage FOSSIL FUELS ARE NOT THE ANSWER.
  • 14. RENEWABLE ENERGY IS ONLY PART OF THE SOLUTION The Need for Energy Storage
  • 15. ENERGY STORAGE IS THE MISSING LINK
  • 16. • GERMANY • EUROPE • USA: CALIFORNIA • CHINA • CANADA • AUSTRALIA • ISLAND NATIONS • SOUTH AMERICA • AFRICA • INDIA $20 BILLION / YR MARKET BY 2020 A RAPIDLY GROWING CLEAN TECH SECTOR
  • 17. Load shifting & capital asset deferral Renewable firming & ramp rate control Microgrids & building efficiency Frequency regulation 0 1 2 3 4 Power(kW) One Day Solar Generation in Lanai, HI Demand Solar APPLICATIONS RESIDENTIAL APPLICATIONS
  • 18. HOME ENERGY INDEPENDENCE 70% of energy is generated when nobody is home to use it. An energy storage system can more than double self- consumption of clean, home- generated power
  • 19. RESIDENTIAL ENERGY STORAGE OPTIONS • 6X Cost • 3x Energy • 2x Life • 5x smaller • Min. Maint. Lead Acid Lithium-Ion
  • 20. OSE SPIDER9 TECHNOLOGY
