Transcript of "Good Practice Summary. Mid West Regional Authority. Michael Bell"

  1. 1. Good Practice Summary Mid West Regional Authority April 2013, Finland
  2. 2. Good Practice Proposal Innovative Financing and Operation of Small Scale Biomass Energy Supply and Energy Efficiency Upgrades in Public Facilities
  3. 3. Potential • Biomass presents strong potential to significantly reduce the heating bill for public body facilities as a whole and to bring the heating and hot water portion of each site’s energy consumption to zero carbon emissions. To date, financial restrictions on public bodies in the MWRA has significantly deterred uptake of Renewable Energy Systems (RES), including Biomass. The innovative financial model developed by the Tipperary Energy Agency offers public bodies the opportunity to reduce their annual energy costs along with their carbon footprint, without the need for significant capital investment. The benefits of this risk removal model for the authority have been successfully demonstrated in four case studies within the region to date (Nenagh Leisure Centre, Thurles Leisure Centre, LIT Tipperary and Coolbawn Water Treatment Facility).
  4. 4. Problems Addressed • Capital costs of investment • Project risk factors • Lack of demonstration of successfully implemented, alternative financial models • Lack of market demand for energy service companies • Public private partnerships are rare in the energy supply market
  5. 5. Key Aspects • Energy Services Contract (ESCO) • Three to five year heat supply, operate and maintain contract • Alternative model is where the local authority can sign a long term (5 to 15yr) energy supply contract • Risk analysis scenarios • Energy efficiency measures • Liability for and maintenance of physical assets • Liability for the use of backup fuels • Liability and impact of energy demand change
  6. 6. Nenagh & Thurles Leisure Centres Biomass Heat supply
