The Quiet Giant: Energy Efficiency Ready to Roar!

  1. 1. The Quiet Giant:Energy Efficiency Ready to Roar!<br />World Energy Technologies Summit<br />March 18, 2010<br />Kateri Callahan, President<br />Alliance to Save Energy<br />
  2. 2. Presentation Overview<br />About the Alliance<br />A Quiet History of Huge Success<br />Game Changers: Setting the Stage for the Decade of Energy Efficiency<br />Ready to Roar: Energy Efficiency as the “First Fuel”<br />
  3. 3. What is the Alliance to Save Energy? <br /><ul><li>Non-profit organization headquartered in U.S.; operations world-wide
  4. 4. Led by Senator Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Peter Darbee, President and CEO of Pacific Gas and Electric
  5. 5. Includes 10 Members of Congress – Bi-Cameral; Bi-Partisan
  6. 6. Also includes environmental, consumer, and trade association heads, state and local policy makers, corporate executives</li></li></ul><li>Working with and Across All Sectors of the Economy <br /><ul><li> ~170 companies, organizations, and institutions in Associates Program

  8. 8. Initiatives underway in research, policy advocacy, education, technology deployment, market transformation and communications</li></li></ul><li>A Quiet History of Success<br />
  9. 9. Game Changers: Global Imperatives…<br />Climate Change:<br /> Energy use directly linked to <br /> GHG emissions..the U.S. example:<br /><ul><li>Security:Unchecked growth in energy demand can:
  10. 10. Accelerate fossil fuel depletion
  11. 11. Increase our reliance on foreign sources of energy
  12. 12. Economy:
  13. 13. Energy waste comes at high costs: “Business as usual” energy use will waste more than $1.2 trillion in the U.S. between now and 2020 in the U.S. alone – and this does not include transportation energy consumption!</li></li></ul><li>Source: McKinsey Global Institute<br />Game Changers: Understanding the Enormous Potential for Savings……<br />
  14. 14. Game Changers: Leadership by Example<br />Through energy efficiency alone, Walmart...<br /><ul><li> saving 250 million kwh/year in the U.S. (enough to power 23,000 homes)
  15. 15. …has reduced energy load by approximately 15-20% </li></ul>Learning Resulted in New Sustainability Goals:<br />- Reduce GHG emissions at existing stores 20% by 2012<br />- Long-term: 100% powered by renewable energy<br />- Zero-waste operations<br />- Sustainable product selection<br />- Sustainability/efficiency criteria for supplies and vendors around the world<br />EE technologies are helping Walmart get there NOW:<br />- Daylighting<br />- Efficient HVAC<br />- White Roofs- Lighting Retrofits<br /><ul><li>Fuel efficient vehicles…and more!</li></li></ul><li>Game Changers: Leadership by Example <br />Since 1994:<br />Energy intensity reduced by 22% (Btu/pound of product)<br />1,600 trillion Btu saved  <br />Prevented 86 million metric tons of CO2 from entering atmosphere<br />$5 billion in energy savings achieved<br />Equivalent to the electricity needed to power all the residential homes in California for one year!<br />
  16. 16. Game Changers:<br />Increasing Utility Sector Investment<br />Source: Consortium for Energy Efficiency, 2009 Annual Report<br />
  17. 17. Game Changers: Federal InvestmentStimulus: $65B Related to Energy Efficiency<br />Funding in Millions of US Dollars<br />
  18. 18. Game Changers: Global Investment <br />EE: THE BEST INVESTMENT ??<br />Global revenues from climate-related businesses rose by 75 percent in 2008 to $530 billion<br />Climate-related business revenue could exceed $2 trillion by 2020 <br />Energy efficiency recorded the highest investment return at 30%<br />GOVERNMENTS AROUND THE WORLD SEEM TO THINK SO…<br />Energy efficiency will receive $184 billion (53%) of the $350 billion in <br />global green stimulus funds <br />Source: HSBC Global Research Report, September 2009<br />
  19. 19. Requirements to “Roar”: Public Policy Infrastructure<br /><ul><li>To lock in savings for consumers and businesses
  20. 20. To achieve market penetration
  21. 21. To gain foothold in market</li></ul>To encourage technological innovation<br />
  22. 22.

Bingaman, Murkowski, Menendez introduce Appliance Standards Bill (NEEE)<br />Bilateral agreement: U.S.-China Energy Efficiency Action Plan<br />House passes American Clean Energy and Security Act (ACES)<br />House passes $75B Jobs bill<br />Sens. Kerry and Boxer introduce Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act (CEJAPA)<br />Sens. Merkley & Pryor introduce Building Star<br />
  23. 23. Roaring into the Decade: Forecast for U.S. Policy - 2010 <br />Clean Energy Legislation w/ Strong EE <br />Building Codes & Appliance Standards<br />Innovative Financing Mechanisms<br />Significant Funding from Allowances <br />New Jobs Bill<br />Loan Guaranties<br />Workforce Training<br />Residential Retrofit Rebates<br />Commercial Retrofit Rebates<br />Significant FY 2010 Appropriations<br />Binding International Climate Treaties???<br />
