  • 6. National Security Concerns  Our growing dependence on unstable parts of the world  Dangerous and costly military commitments connected to energy needs  Vulnerability of energy flows at global choke points
  • 7. Goals of North American Energy Community Independence from unstable authoritarian governments via a full energy mix of pooled resources from US, Canada & Mexico Reduction in fossil fuel emissions, boosting alternatives + efficiency and conservation improvements go green both ways Creating basis for sustainable economic growth for all of North America
  • 8. When Oil Alternatives are Viable Biodiesel * $80 US Corn-based ethanol * $60 Shale Oil $50 Tar sands, Brazilian cane-based ethanol, Gas-to-liquids, Coal-to-liquids $40 Cambridge Energy Research Associates; The Economist. April 22nd, 2006. *Excludes the impact of tax credits
  • 9. Biomass Resource Capacity Available by County
  • 10. Biomass Fuels the Economy Federal Renewable Fuels Standards Impact requiring production of 7.5 billion gallons by 2012.  the reduction of crude oil imports by 2 billion barrels  reduce payments to foreign oil producers by $64 billion.  potential to create 234,840 new jobs in all sectors of the economy  increase household income by $43 billion  add $200 billion to GDP between 2005-2012  create $6 billion in new investment in renewable fuel production facilities
  • 11. Bio-fuel Potential  In U.S.  5.6 billion gallons of ethanol now in production  6 billion gallon capacity under construction  Cellulosic potential is enormous - provided technical challenges are overcome DOE and USDA  goal of replacing 30% of transportation petroleum used in US by 2030
  • 12. Projected Corn Ethanol Production. . . accounts for <10% of motor fuel needs 14 12 Billion gallons 10 8 6 4 2 0 2007/08 2009/10 2011/12 2013/14 2015/16 With credit/tariff W/O credit/tariff USDA analysis
  • 13. Biodiesel Plants CARD: Iowa State University 5/2007
  • 14. Projected Soy Biodiesel Production. . . w/o tax credit (USDA analysis) 800 700 Million gallons 600 500 400 300 200 100 0 2007/08 2009/10 2011/12 2013/14 2015/16 With credit W/O credit USDA analysis
  • 15. The Most Plentiful Resource 275 billion tons of Recoverable Coal
  • 16. Coal is Electrifying  50+% electricity generated from coal in US  Abundant, cheap, widely distributed  Clean coal technologies available now  Carbon capture and sequestration  Can be mixed with biomass to lessen emissions Coal = high rank biomass  Can be gasified and liquified Coal = heavy oil
  • 17. Hydro Power #1 Renewable in North America 1200 1000 800 Fossil/Nuke 600 Other Renew Hydro 400 200 0 Canada US Mexico Total Gigawatt Electricity Generating Capacity (2005)
  • 18. National Center for Hydrogen Technology University of North Dakota Energy and Environmental Research Center
  • 19. Solar Potential is Regional
  • 20. Wind could generate as much as 11 trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity each year on the Great Plains, Great Lakes, Rocky and Appalachian Mountains. 50,000 megawatts in Canada
  • 21. Department of Energy Announces $93 million to Support Wind Energy – April 2009
  • 22. Cross Border Transmission ~ MATL It Can Be Done!
  • 23. Current Transmission in Mexico
  • 24. Barriers & Bottlenecks  Uncertainty about the future  Financial challenges & risk profile of new industries  Materials and construction – Escalating costs and shortages – Contractors running at full capacity  Distribution and transmission – Highly complex, highly integrated  Siting and permitting  TRANSMISSION
  • 25. What Government Can Do  Increase incentives for domestic production of energy, with gradual but steady focus on renewable and clean production  More investment in and incentives for energy efficiency technologies and conservation methods  Early adopter of new technologies, e.g. hydrogen, bio jet fuels  New investment in transmission lines for energy, particularly wind, solar and other renewable forms
  • 26. Communities, Regions & States Take the Initiative • State tax incentives, credits & goals • Community-based energy & economic development initiatives • Multi-jurisidictional energy initiatives, e.g. Plug-In Partners National Campaign Wenatchee, Washington
