  2. 2. 2 Agenda ETCleanFuels’ 2010 Founding Partners: 1. Who is the East Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition? 2. Projects Examples  E85 (& B20) Stations – Nearby and Not-so-nearby  Outreach & Education Work  Leading the Way with Cellulosic Ethanol – UTBI & Genera Energy 3. The EV Project – Particulars and the Need-to-know 4. More EV + Solar Work
  3. 3. 3  8-yr old nonprofit in East TN  Designated member of U.S. DOE Clean Cities Program (~90)  Direct fleet & fuel supplier interaction; meetings; workshops; presentations; adult & K-12 education; multiple newsletters  Focused on transp. sector change: diversify away from oil & use less! Who is ETCleanFuels?
  4. 4. 4 TN E85 & B20 Stations – We Help  E85 stations – 33 public stations  B20 stations – 32 public stations (most public B20 in U.S.) Most stations thanks to state funding, ETCleanFuels work, or stations alone.
  5. 5. 5  State (through TDOT) offers highway incentive program: If station will place “E85” (or “B20”) on their sign, TDOT will erect blue “biofuel” sign… on all 4 exit signs Getting smart – Let ‘em Know
  6. 6. 6 (Not policy, but partnership + progress) I-75 Green Corridor Project  Add 10 E85 & 15 B20 public pumps @ 200 mile intervals  Enable driving all the way from Sault Ste. Marie, MI to Miami, FL on your biofuel  1,786 miles – will be the longest biofuels corridor in U.S.  Displace 1.7+ MGY of petroleum  Proposed I-40 last year… didn’t win

  8. 8. 8 K-12 School Presentations • Presentations focus on relaying the basics & importance of alt fuels and fuel economy • ’06-’07 = 700 students reached • ’07-’08 = 1,700 students reached • ’08-’09 = 3,600 students reached • ‘09-’10 = 4,990 students reached • “1st Graders for Clean Fuels” - hits all 5 of the senses through an interactive presentation • “Clean Fuels Jeopardy!” a hit! “The Oil Timeline” for younger kids
  9. 9. 9  Demonstration Scale Cellulosic Ethanol Biorefinery  Switchgrass farmer incentive program  Biomass Innovation Park  Technology demonstrations  Tennessee Biomass Supply Co-op  Seed production capacity Building a Biomass Industry in TN www.GeneraEnergy.net www.UTbioenergy.org Biomass
  10. 10. 10 Demonstration Scale Cellulosic Ethanol Biorefinery • Collaboration between Genera Energy and DuPont Danisco Cellulosic Ethanol (DDCE) • Vonore, Tennessee: Niles Ferry Industrial Park, Monroe County, 32 acre site • 250,000 GPY demo plant and Process Development Unit (PDU) pilot plant • Optimized as precursor to commercial facility; long-term operation as R&D facility • Started operations December 2009 • Multiple feedstocks: cob & switchgrass Copyright 2010, Genera Energy LLC, NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION
  11. 11. 11 Tennessee Switchgrass Experience • Contracting with local farmers to produce 6,000 acres of switchgrass – Nearly 3,000 acres harvested in 2009 – Added >3,000 acres in 2010 – 1,000 acres improved varieties • UT/Genera contract with local farmers – ~$450/ac/yr for 3 years – We provide seed, technical expertise – Separate storage contracts – Yield-based component in 2010 • Averaging about 8 tons/ac by 3rd year – Harvesting ~2 tons in year 1 – ~5 tons in year 2 – ~8 tons year 3 and beyond
