  • AFT – world leader in biogas analysis and cleaning, proprietary technology and experience = pure pipeline grade, cost-effective biomethane ( “renewable natural gas” [RNG], with unmatched 10-year guarantee; 300 projects worldwide). AES project development arm: U.S. and international energy project development and marketing expertise.
  • Biogas opportunity: billions of gallon equivalents/y.r; > 20 percent of current motor fuel market Sweden producing 20 percent of vehicle fuel right now In 2007, biomass-produced electricity in California totaled 6,236 gigawatt-hours (GWh) or 2.1 percent of the state's total system power . A total of 132 operating biomass power plants, with an installed capacity about 1,000 megawatts, are in California. ( California Natural Gas Data and Statistics ) Biorem reports a potential biogas market of $3.68 billion in North America. Biogas sources: WWTP, landfill, agricultural and industrial treatments (breweries, etc.)—seeing more digesters every year Tipping point – from petroleum to natural gas motor fuel — bridge fuel to renewable resources. Based on recent discoveries, first time in U.S. history we have > 100 years of gas, with proven reserves and price stability thru 2035 (US EIA – below $8.50/MMBtu) Natural gas with proven availability and cost stability means increased investment in RNG is CNG from renewable sources, so it uses the same infrastructure as CNG from conventional fossil gas sources
  • We can produce RNG -- the greenest fuel available – in every region of the U.S. for a buck less a gallon (< $2/GGE) than gasoline or diesel without government subsidies. According to the Picken ’s Plan, the U.S. spent $475 billion on foreign oil in 2008 33 percent of that went to power our heavy truck and bus fleet.
  • car/truck/bus fuel, LEEDs/green building, home – displace propane, heating oil, electric If the U.S. were to achieve its full potential (8,000 anaerobic digesters), then the total generating capacity would be around 2 percent of all electricity production ( Industrial Fuels and Power ). The methane in renewable biogas could displace as much as 10-15 percent of current fossil natural gas use by 2025-2035 ( American Biogas Council ).
  • Biogas is GHG-negative : when burned in place of a fossil fuel, carbon-neutral biogas reduces our GHG footprint Positive byproducts: compost, fertilizer, CO2 and nutrients for greenhouses, algae-energy production Clean water: prevents manure run-off into streams, shellfish beds Local economic stimulus: makes dairy and cattle operations more viable, provides local energy and construction and manufacturing jobs For PNW audience : AFT is a PNW (or WA) based company, with deep local ties and growing employee base
  • Conversion incentives: NATGAS Act before Congress will provide additional incentives to convert vehicles, etc. Air and water quality: grants, markets for emissions and effluent trading Ag grants: for digesters, rural development thru USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, USDA Rural Development
  • Sustainable mission: cleaner water, more profitable dairy, renewable waste-to-energy model Dairy operations generating significant manure waste, stored in lagoons until able to spread on fields. Releasing methane gas, 23 times more destructive than biogas Currently generates 450kw electricity with 1/3 of gas, flares the rest Conventional stranded biogas model: just getting by financially (expensive, high-maintenance biogas engine; modest power income); operating under ag air quality exemption Other interesting stats: Biogas recovery systems are technically feasible at more than 8,000 U.S. dairy and swine operations. Systems at these facilities have the potential to collectively generate more than 13 million megawatt-hours (MWh) per year and displace about 1,670 megawatts (MW) of fossil fuel-fired generation. In 2004, Agstar reported that at the time, swine and dairy operations had the capacity to produce $500 million worth of electricity annually .
  • Conclusion: AES pays more for biogas than Qualco nets from electric gen Timeline: <six months from contract to production of RNG Partnering: compression, RNG storage, fueling system, conversion assistance, maintenance, gas quality guarantee
