  • 1. HUD Workshop: Capacity Building Solar Electric Technologies Photovoltaics (PV) Sandra Begay-Campbell Sandia National Laboratories Principal Member of the Technical Staff Sandia is a multiprogram laboratory operated by Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin Company, for the United States Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration under contract DE-AC-04-94AL85000.
  • 2. Building-Integrated PV (BIPV) 2
  • 3. PV Solar Resource Flat Plate, Facing South, Latitude Tilt Data and maps from the Renewable Resources Data Center at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory 3
  • 4. Simple Direct Drive PV System Graphics from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory 4
  • 5. Simple DC PV System with Battery Storage Graphics from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory 5
  • 6. AC PV System with Inverter Graphics from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory 6
  • 7. Utility-Connected (Grid-Tied) Utility-Connected (Grid-Tied) PV System Graphics from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory 7
  • 8. Hybrid PV/Generator System Graphics from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory 8
  • 9. Simple PV house system System • Array • Inverter • Utility Interface/Control • Meters • Storage batteries (optional) 9
  • 10. A process of technology implementation A process of technology implementation over several housing development projects is recommended. Each set of recommendations are ranked from very cost efficient approaches to conventional technology demonstrations to advanced technology demonstrations. It is understood that additional funding will be needed for first cost of many technologies and energy efficient features. The model process developed would provide a progression of lessons learned which have been implemented by Sandia’s military customers. 10
  • 11. Energy load (demand) reduction Specific features are recommended for energy use reduction: • Programmable thermostats R-38 attic insulation R-19 exterior insulation • High-efficiency compact fluorescent lighting • Basic Clothes Line • White (or as close to white) roofing with 3-foot overhangs • High-efficiency refrigerator and Energy STAR rated appliances • Advanced solar control double glazed windows • Downsized SEER 15.0, variable speed, & 2-ton air conditioner with field-verified cooling-coil airflow. • OR High efficiency swamp cooler, such as a Master COOL evaporative unit • Solar hot-water systems • Photovoltaic (PV) systems Based on the existing HUD standard for cost per home & infrastructure cost allocation, many of these features may not be included in existing budgets. 11
  • 12. Training for the new homeowners is also recommended These model homes should be implemented for energy use monitoring. • One or two homes would feature the latest techniques recommended and the other would serve as the conventional home. • The goal would be how much energy could be saved without factoring in the cost of the energy efficiency features. • A close match of home owner and energy use between the zero energy home(s) and conventional home should be implemented. The monitoring and analysis be used to demonstrate the use of these zero energy features to HUD homeowners & other constituents. . 12
  • 13. Training for the new homeowners is also recommended Along with other training provided, new homeowner training should include: • energy conservation • peak energy management • energy use based on energy interdependencies (mini-grid system which could include metering) Information and training would provide a progression of lessons learned, not only for the homeowner, but for other constituencies. 13
  • 14. Federal renewable energy grants DOE Renewable Energy Development on Tribal Lands • Competitive solicitation depending on congressional appropriations • Sandia technical assistance is provided to the awardees USDA Rural Utility Service – Rural Business Development • New grant to assist farmers, ranchers, & small rural businesses in • buying renewable energy systems • making energy efficiency improvements Sandia is interested in a long-range process of technology implementation for managing life-cycle cost to meet tribal housing needs 14
  • 15. Sandia’s technical assistance to tribes As part of the TEP team, Sandia’s activities and responsibilities include the following: • Program technical support • Project-specific technical support • Capacity building in Indian Country • Publications and outreach • Student Internship Specific support as requested by the tribes (grantees): • Ramona Band of Cahuilla • Hualapai Nation Sandia field visit to Hualapai Earth Ship • Navajo Nation facility with interns • Hopi Nation • Laguna Pueblo Tribal Energy Projects are showcased at the annual DOE TEP Project Review, November 17 – 20, 2008, Denver, CO 15
