Transcript

  • 1. DOE SunShot Initiative Rooftop Solar Challenge Eric Ogle
  • 2. Overview ~10 mins: • SunShot Rooftop Solar Challenge, Phase I summary • Phase I Goals and Partners • Phase I Outcomes • Recent Events • SunShot RSC, Phase II proposal overview ~15 mins: • The Rooftop Solar App
  • 3. SunShot Phase I Summary • The Tennessee SunShot effort was one of 22 projects in the US funded with a DOE Rooftop Solar Challenge grant • DOE estimates that 35% of installation costs are due to non- hardware costs. SunShot goals relate to reducing “soft costs” associated with rooftop solar: – Improve market conditions for Rooftop Solar – Streamline and standardize permitting processes – Reduce market barriers to increase Solar adoption – Facilitate participation of local governments, utilities, and organizations • The Tennessee SunShot effort focused on: – Permitting and interconnection processes – Financing – Planning and zoning issues – Net metering and interconnection standards • The UT team facilitated discussion of issues but the Project Partners made any key decisions…
  • 4. SunShot Goal: Reduce Non-Technical Barriers to Rooftop PV
  • 5. Key Findings • Improvements came from process efficiencies • Streamlined municipal review process • Proposed streamlined parallel process for <10kw • Consistent communications often did not exist among local stakeholders • Change in signature processes cut delays • Financing does not appear to be a deterrent • Current issues include how to value a PV system during property transfers
  • 6. DOE Evaluation of Progress • DOE NREL Solar Metrics market assessments for each jurisdiction submitted at beginning of project (Feb 2012) • Completed with municipalities and distributors, with industry verification • Solar Metrics market assessments perfomed again and submitted to DOE NREL at project end (Feb 2013) • Again, completed with municipalities and distributors, with industry verification • Significant improvements according to DOE NREL Solar market assessments: • 75% improvement in the overall team score
  • 7. Recent Deliverables • A dozen white papers, covering an assortment of Solar related topics, all of which are on the project site at: sites.google.com/site/sunshottn • Recent Franklin water treatment facility case study • Memphis BioWorks parking garage case study • A Rooftop Solar App for iOS and Android devices • Tennessee Solar conference…
  • 8. Tennessee Solar Summit Day 1 • Phase I Jurisdictions • Mobile Application • Breakout sessions • Matt Brown from TVA • Amy Bunton from Pathway • Mayor Talley from Ducktown • Justin Barnes from NCSC • Chattanooga Airport Installation • Ted Wampler Day 2 • Nashville/Davidson County Mayor Karl Dean • John Hopkins from TN Score • Panel facilitated by Bruce Tonn • TenneSEIA’s Gil Hough • State of TN’s Molly Cripps • NCSC’s Justin Barnes • TVA’s Patty West • ICMA session: Integrating Solar into Local Plans • Solar Tour of Chattanooga Airport April 10-11, 2013 – Chattanooga
  • 9. SunShot Phase II Proposal • UT submitted a Phase II concept paper to DOE in January • Essentially propose to extend the Phase I project area to the entire the TVA service region • DOE invited a full proposal, which was submitted on March 21 • Decision expected in mid- to late-May
  • 10. Additional Partners • University of Alabama at Huntsville, Redstone Energy, Mississippi State University, Western Kentucky University, NASEO, Brooks Engineering, Simplikate and Vergence • Association of Tennessee Valley Governments • Five State Energy Offices (TN, MS, AL, NC, KY) • TenneSEIA • NC Solar Center • Sandia National Laboratories • TREEDC • ICMA • TAPA
  • 11. Anticipated Phase II Outcomes • Continue work with partner communities to understand and reduce barriers associated with Solar • Address unique issues in small and rural communities • Work with the planning community to share best practices, model zoning, relaxed constraints, etc. • Work with local governments to prepare for Solar growth • Work with real property professionals to expand knowledge base for valuation of solar properties • Develop case studies, white papers, create Public Service Announcements and educational materials of interest to stakeholders • Should hear from DOE soon.
