Domestic Carbon Emissions Joint Learning Programme Session I 15th October 2009

  1. 1. Scaling up cuts in domestic carbon emissions <Structure of JLP> Phil Newcombe Associate Project Manager
  2. 2. • What’s good? (Best Practice) • Who can help us? (Provider Landscape) • What can we deliver? (Plan) • What else do we need? (leadership, £, regulation, knowledge?)
  3. 3. Scaling up cuts in domestic carbon emissions <Introduction to MEA> Richard Davies Director
  4. 4. Good Morning
  5. 5. We’re seeking to deliver on the 3Ds: Demand Reduction Decarbonisation Decentralisation
  6. 6. Scaling up cuts in domestic carbon emissions <WHY?> Richard Davies Director
  7. 7. ‘We have an addiction to fossil fuels, and it’s not sustainable. The developed world gets 80% of its energy from fossil fuels; Britain, 90%. And this is unsustainable for three reasons. First, easily- accessible fossil fuels will at some point run out, so we’ll eventually have to get our energy from someplace else. Second, burning fossil fuels is having a measurable and very-probably dangerous effect on the climate. Avoiding dangerous climate change motivates an immediate change from our current use of fossil fuels. Third, even if we don’t care about climate change, a drastic reduction in Britain’s fossil fuel consumption would seem a wise move if we care about security of supply: continued rapid use of the oil and gas reserves will otherwise soon force fossil-addicted Britain to depend on imports from untrustworthy foreigners.’ Professor David MacKay FRS Chief Scientific Adviser to DECC see www.withouthotair.com
  8. 8. ‘The best scientific projections indicate that we have very little time left - indeed, less than one hundred months - in which to alter our behaviour drastically. Although I wish it were otherwise, I fear we have reached the point when if we do too little, too late to tackle this problem, the consequences could be catastrophic.’
  9. 9. "Regardless of which route we choose, the world's current predicament limits our maneuvering room. We are experiencing a step-change in the growth rate of energy demand due to population growth and economic development, and Shell estimates that after 2015 supplies of easy-to-access oil and gas will no longer keep up with demand." Jeroen van der Veer, CEO Shell 28th January 2008
  10. 10. Climate Change Act Targets • 1990 baseline of CO2 emissions was approximately 590 million tons of CO2. • An 80% reduction is based on the minimum reductions necessary to avoid causing catastrophic and permanent changes to the climate • 80% of 590m tons = 118 million tonnes. • The UK level of CO2 emissions (1.76 tonnes/capita cf. ~10 tonnes today) hasn’t been that low since…… when?

  16. 16. <It’s the delivery stupid!>
  17. 17. ‘The public discussion of energy options tends to be intensely emotional, polarized, mistrustful, and destructive. Every option is strongly opposed: the public seem to be anti- wind, anti-coal, anti-waste-to-energy, anti-tidal-barrage, anti-fuel-duty, and anti-nuclear.’ David MacKay FRS Anti compact fluorescent lighting, anti cavity wall insulation, anti condensing boilers…..
  18. 18. Questions • Too much rhetoric & not enough action? • Are organisations taking climate change seriously? • Is lack of progress simply because no-one is ACCOUNTABLE • How do we create more WILLFUL INDIVIDUALS and LEADERS? • Do LSPs understand what the potential is?
  19. 19. Scaling up cuts in domestic carbon emissions <Blue Book: Energy Descent> Richard Davies Director
  20. 20. Sub Title If you don’t know where you are going you are almost certain to end up there.
  21. 21. Questions • How many organisations, localities or LSPs have an understanding of the DESTINATION & ROUTE MAP? • Who should be deciding on what options are most appropriate? Central Govt. / LSPs / Elected Members…… • Is this much too complex for ‘lay-people’?
  22. 22. Scaling up cuts in domestic carbon emissions <History & Existing Homes> Richard Davies Director
  23. 23. The Great ………. Refurb In February 2009 Ed Milliband announced that by 2050 all British homes will be near carbon zero. Is now the right time for ???? to step forward & seek to be the first place in the UK to deliver this in existing homes?
  24. 24. Planning for new Policy & Programmes How can localities benefit from what DECC are planning. Community Energy Saving Programme, Feed In Tariffs, Heat & Energy Saving Strategy
  25. 25. Unfair Share: Maximise Uptake Ensure that ???? know what Sustainable Energy & Climate Change services are available in their locality and then consume them or promote the consumption of them.
  26. 26. The Art of the Possible…… Explore what has been achieved within the system as it is. Why can’t ???? replicate examples of ‘Good Enough Practice’. The Domestic Energy Support of Kirklees, the Biomass Uptake of Barnsley, the Leadership of Woking………
  27. 27. • What’s good? (Best Practice) • Who can help us? (Provider Landscape) • What can we deliver? (Plan) • What else do we need? (leadership, £, regulation, knowledge?)
  28. 28. Questions? • Wait for clarity OR make a plan & go for it? • What is the role of the LSP in this? • How is your own home? • Where does the money come from?
  29. 29. Scaling up cuts in domestic carbon emissions <New Build> Richard Davies Director
  30. 30. • What’s good? (Best Practice) • Who can help us? (Provider Landscape) • What can we deliver? (Plan) • What else do we need? (leadership, £, regulation, knowledge?)
  31. 31. Questions • 2016 is not very far away – should we be encouraging local architects, builders and developers to try out some of the technologies? • How can we maximise the ‘Green Collar Jobs’ dimension of this ambition? • Do any of you have examples of good practice?
  32. 32. Scaling up cuts in domestic carbon emissions <Let’s not forget FUEL POVERTY> Richard Davies Director
  33. 33. Affordable Warmth Eradicate ‘Fuel Poverty’ Maximise share of support e.g. Warmfront, CERT, Community Energy Saving Programme etc Place Based approach – Affordable Warmth Community
  34. 34. • What’s good? (Best Practice) • Who can help us? (Provider Landscape) • What can we deliver? (Plan) • What else do we need? (leadership, £, regulation, knowledge?)
  35. 35. Questions • How could your organisation help reduce FUEL POVERTY? • What is the role of an LSP? • Who in the region is accountable for FUEL POVERTY? • How could we better spend the existing resources?
  36. 36. Scaling up cuts in domestic carbon emissions <Microgeneration> Richard Davies Director

  44. 44. Questions • How can we accelerate the uptake of MICROGENERATION? • Examples of what works? • What might the ‘supply chain’ opportunities be for our locality? • How might we engage the Economic Development Group of the LSP?
  45. 45. “Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood... Make big plans; aim high in hope and work.” Daniel Hudson Burnham 1846-1912 “Search all the parks in all your cities; you'll find no statues of committees.” David Ogilvy 1911-1999
  46. 46. “Leaving mobile phone chargers plugged in” is often held up as an example of a behavioural ecocrime, with people who switch their chargers off being praised for “doing their bit.” The truth is that a typical mobile phone charger consumes just 0.01 kWh per day. The amount of energy saved by switching off the phone charger, 0.01 kWh, is exactly the same as the energy used by driving an average car for one second. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t switch phone chargers off. But don’t be duped by the mantra “every little helps.” Obsessively switching off the phone-charger is like bailing the Titanic with a teaspoon. Do switch it off, but please be aware how tiny a gesture it is. David MacKay ‘Sustainable Energy Without the Hot Air’ www.withouthotair.com
