Transcript of "Solar and Energy Efficiency: Moving Towards and Integrated Approach"

  1. 1. Solar and Energy Efficiency: Moving Toward an Integrated Approach? Andrew McAllister CCSE - Director of Programs September 29, 2009
  2. 2. Finance & Incentives: Enabling Widespread Adoption <ul><li>Current adoption rates of clean energy projects will not come close to meeting CA’s 2020 greenhouse gas goals. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CPUC Target: 13 million residential retrofits statewide by 2020 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Property owners are accustomed to paying utility bills in simple monthly increments. </li></ul><ul><li>Financing levels the playing field, allows proactive individual decisions. </li></ul><ul><li>Incentives help with cost-effectiveness </li></ul><ul><li>However, programs increasingly require energy efficiency alongside solar. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Property-Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Financing Programs <ul><li>CEC State Energy Program (SEP) will provide support to local governments for PACE program development. SEP-funded PACE programs must focus first on efficiency: </li></ul><ul><li>Building Assessment (HERS or other) identifies potential measures </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Test-in / Test-out to verify performance improvement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consumption reductions required for financing eligibility </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Or , prescriptive list of basic measures </li></ul><ul><li>Financing for PV contingent on meeting EE requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Contractors: What does this business model look like? </li></ul>
  4. 4. CA Solar Initiative Energy Efficiency Requirements
  5. 11. Solar and Energy Efficiency: Natural Partners <ul><li>Integration can improve property owner cash flow relative to PV-only </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Improved risk profile of project portfolio </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Should translate to lower cost of capital over time </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CCSE survey of solar customers in SDG&E territory </li></ul><ul><ul><li>N = ~5000 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>614 respondents </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>85% of respondents have installed or plan to install at least 1 EE upgrade </li></ul></ul>
  6. 12. Reasons Apply to Solar and EE….
  7. 15. Marketplace Evolution needed <ul><li>Programs moving towards integration – by fiat and common sense </li></ul><ul><li>Solar installers generally not providing broad EE services </li></ul><ul><li>Nascent “building performance” ecosystem needs “stimulus!” </li></ul><ul><li>Customers need help with EE value proposition, and execution </li></ul><ul><li>Streamlined, robust financing programs key for broad adoption </li></ul>
  8. 16. Messages to Local Gov’ts <ul><li>Energy-related stimulus $$: 100M+ to SD region…. Can leverage for long-term impact </li></ul><ul><li>Reserve some $$ for community-wide activities: revolving funds, basic retrofit assistance, program planning, housing stock assessment…. </li></ul><ul><li>Workforce: Need to develop a critical mass of clean-energy professionals to scale up </li></ul><ul><li>Cities benefit from regional coordination </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Context: SANDAG and the Regional Energy Strategy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Collaborate, pool resources with other jurisdictions </li></ul></ul><ul><li>PACE financing is key component of long-term game plan </li></ul>
