Growing energy demand
Limited reserves of fossil fuels
Environmental concerns
Now !!!
We are in
Energy
Crisis.
What can we
   do?
Solution
• Reduce energy use
• Develop new energy
How to reduce
 energy use?
Reduce residential
       energy use
• Use the electricity-saving device
• Form awareness of saving energy
• ……
Use the electricity-
 saving device
Form awareness of
  saving energy
Reduce transportation
    energy use
• Use the hydro vehicle
• Use public transportation
• ……
Use the hydro vehicle
Use public transportation
Reduce industrial
       energy use
• High efficient production
• Improve the equipment
• ……
What can be
developed into new
     energy?
The new energy
• Renewable energy
• Nonrenewable energy
---Natural gas, etc.
We should choose
renewable energy if
possible.
Why renewable energy?
Renewable VS Nonrenewable
• Renewable
• ---unlimited, sustainable, clean
• Nonrenewable
• ---limited, expensive
Renewable resources
•   Wind
•   Solar
•   Hydro
•   Waves
•   Biomass
•   ……
Wind
Solar
Hydro
Waves
Biomass
Now you will see a
     case.
A Case of solution to
   energy crisis
    (California)
Generation Capacity in California
          by Source
                      Solar/Wind
            Nuclear       3%       ...
Future Steps/Objectives
                by Mohsen Nazemi, P.E.
           Assistant Deputy Executive Officer

• Accelerate...
• Address Power Plant Emissions Impacts
  on RECLAIM and RTC Prices
• Minimize Use of Existing Diesel-fired
  Emergency Ba...
Conclusion
Facing energy crisis, reducing
energy use and developing
new energy are efficient ways.
Beat it!!!
