  • 4. quot;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.quot; Jeroen van der Veer, CEO Shell 28th January 2008
  • 5. East Midlands population: 4.4 million CO2 : 41 million tonnes Nigeria population: 140 million CO2 : 52 million tonnes
  • 6. The heart of the matter DEMAND REDUCTION • In 2003 final consumption of E was 336,218GWh • In 2007 final consumption of E was 341,945GWh • Up 1.7% or 5,727GWh • All wind projects (on and offshore) in 2007 generated some 5,274GWh of E • This was just 92% of the extra electricity we used over 48 months ending 2007 • Simplistically we are collectively squandering the efforts to DECARBONISE because we are failing to reduce DEMAND
  • 7. 3Ds Demand Reduction Decarbonisation Decentralisation
  • 8. It’s service delivery stupid
  • 9. LAEP/MEA Summary 1. MEA should never duplicate existing effective sustainable energy and climate change activity within Nottingham & Derbyshire. 2. MEA seeks to establish over a 24 month period (April 2009 – March 2011) and aims for a team of 10 full time staff operating out of two centres. 3. Target gross income at the end of the initial business plan period will be £500k 4. It is the intention of MEA’s operation in the East Midlands to move away from a subscription based service for projects to the model operating in the West Midlands, whereby there is no core funding for MEA from any source. All funding is for the delivery of projects. This intent includes the subscriptions for the Campaign and core services for support through the LAEP 5. MEA will focus on Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire over the initial 24 month period, but if no obvious mechanism for delivering similar activity emerges from other localities within the East Midlands region then MEA may move to provide services over the whole region, given that this maintains or enhances the capability within Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire.
