  • 1. The  Future  of  Energy     at  CMN   Sarah  Jeglum   EDF  Climate  Corps  Fellow   Summer  2012  
  • 2. Who am I?•  Work  history:  newspaper   delivering,  fence  building,  Gre   changing,  firefighGng,   newspaper  ediGng  •  Bachelor  of  Arts  in  journalism   from  the  University  of   Washington,  SeaMle,  WA  •  Candidate  for  Master’s  in   Business  AdministraGon  from   the  University  of  Washington  •  Hired  by  the  EDF  Climate  Corps   in  spring  2012    
  • 3. Agenda•  Background     –  Standing  commitment  to  sustainability   –  BHAGs  •  Building  the  foundaGon   –  Establishing  a  “green  team”  •  Developing  a  plan  •  ExecuGng  the  plan   –  Low-­‐hanging  fruit   –  Medium-­‐  and  long-­‐term  projects     –  Green  revolving  funds   –  IncenGves  &  grants  •  Wrap-­‐up  &  quesGons  
  • 4. CMN’s commitment to a sustainable campus1993  Established   2007  Sustainable   2008    Development   Signed  ACUPCC  InsGtute     to  neutralize   GHG  emissions   Completed  GHG   2009   on  campus   emissions   inventory   SubmiMed   2011   2009-­‐2010   Since  2008,  new   Installed  2.4  kW   Climate  AcGon   campus  buildings   wind  turbine  on   Plan  outlining   have  been  built   campus   planned  acGons   to  energy   to  reduce  GHG   efficient   emissions   standards  
  • 5. Big, Hairy, Audacious Goals (BHAGs)•  According  to  ACUPCC,  CMN  commits  to:     –  100%  reducGon  in  purchased  electricity  emissions   by  2020   –  “Strong  consideraGon”  of  a  50%  reducGon  in  GHG   emissions  by  2020  •  Carbon  neutrality  &  energy  independence,  in   keeping  with  the  more  than  12,000-­‐year-­‐old   tribal  value  of  sustainability  
  • 6. Laying a foundation for successAccording  to  EnergyStar,  “organizaGons  with  energy  programs   that  achieve  success  have  senior-­‐level  support,  sufficient   energy  program  staff,  and  management  structures  that   empower  staff  to  address  energy  efficiency  issues  directly.”    
  • 7. Laying a foundation for successBenchmarking  What  is?   Building  a  team     What  should  be?   Making  a  plan  Current  energy  usage     What  could  be?  Consistent  tracking   Who  are  the  stakeholders?      Regular  reporGng   Who  is  accountable?   What  are  our  goals?     How  will  the  team   What  resources  do  we   operate?   need  in  order  to  meet     them?     What  is  the  first  step?     “A  journey  of  a  thousand  miles  begins  with  a  single  step.”    —Lao-­‐tzu    
  • 8. Building a campus “green team” (or whatever)•  Energy  team  is  responsible  for:   –  Planning   –  Benchmarking   –  ImplemenGng   –  Monitoring     –  EvaluaGng    •  Includes  a  variety  of  stakeholders     –  Students   –  Faculty/staff   –  OperaGons/maintenance   –  SDI  representaGve   –  AdministraGon  •  Designate  an  team  leader  who  will:     –  Recruit,  engage  and  maintain  team  members   –  Coordinate  meeGngs  and  facilitate  acGon   –  Be  accountable  and  commiMed  to  the  energy  management  plan     “One  person  with  a  belief  is  equal  to  99  who  have  only  interests.”  –John  Stewart  Mill  
  • 9. Developing an Energy Management Plan “If  someone  drops  a  $1,000  on  your  porch,  you  don’t  know  what   to  do  with  it  so  you  start  spending  it.  You  have  to  have  a  plan.”        —Bill  Plamann,  Wisconsin’s  Focus  on  Energy  
  • 10.

  • 11. Where are we now? •  ExisGng  ACUPCC  commitments   •  In  order  to  accomplish  your  BHAGs,   Set   you  have  to  set  SMART  goals   Energy   Savings   –  Specific:  “We  want  to  reduce  our  electricity   Goals   consumpGon  in  all  CMN  Keshena  campus   buildings  by  10%.”       Complete  Verify  the   UGlity  History   –  Measurable:  “We  want  to  reduce  our  electricity   &  Equipment   Impact   Usage   consumpGon  by  10%  compared  to  the   InformaGon   2010-­‐2011  fiscal  year.”     –  A>ainable:  Start  with  10%  and  go  from  there;  if   it  looks  like  you  will  exceed  your  target,  set  a   new  one.     Implement   Develop  your   your  Energy   Energy   –  Relevant:  We  can  control  usage  but  not  the  cost   Management   Plan   Management   Plan   of  uGliGes,  so  sepng  a  target  to  reduce  cost   would  be  difficult  to  achieve.   –  Time-­‐bound:  “We  want  to  reduce  our  electricity   consumpGon  in  all  CMN  Keshena  campus   building  by  10%  by  the  end  of  fiscal  year  2013.”
