Terry McGivern MEGS-KT lecture 14th November 2012

  1. 1. FLASHprogrammeand beyondTerry McGivern
  2. 2. 2 Institute for Sustainability• Independent charity led by a world class board representing UK industry, academia and the public sector• Set up to accelerate and facilitate delivery of sustainable communities and cities• Works with many partners to develop and demonstrate innovative, practical solutions to creating greener and more prosperous places to work and live• Shares the knowledge/learning widely to speed up best practice, encourage investment, and actively support social and economic development
  3. 3. 3 Learning and Dissemination• Capture the learning from applied/practical research and demonstration• Utilise “prior knowledge” – don’t reinvent the wheel• Convert into practical, accessible information• Independent and impartial ; well informed/ best practice• Disseminate and share widely to many audiences for both learning and social/economic/environmental improvement• Open access / inclusive
  4. 4. 4 Multiple Audiences /Partners• SME’s (Professions, Trades, Suppliers, Distributors)• Major contractors and consultants• Clients – public and private• Utilities - Energy, water & waste• Local & central government• Academia & research• Trade & Professional Bodies• Third Sector / Community
  5. 5. 5 Institute for SustainabilityThree key programmes• Resource Efficient Buildings - FLASH - FLASH+ - ICAD - RE: Start Local - Climate Market Accelerator (CMA)• Sustainable Infrastructure• Sustainable Transport
  6. 6. 6 Integrated SystemsIntegrated into holistic strategies/planning for delivering lowcarbon /sustainable communities and cities• Total Community Retrofit• Low Carbon London• Smart Cities• Neighbourhood Demo• Future Cities
  7. 7. 7 Logical / progressive journey for SMEs• FLASH – low carbon building / retrofit , micro generation and resource efficiency –developing the solutions and meeting the challenges• FLASH+ - building performance evaluation. Proving what works and what doesnt
  8. 8. 8 Logical / progressive journey for SMEs• Carbon Market Accelerator - facilitating and accelerating the journey to market of innovative products and technologies• RE Start Local - improving local procurement processes and local supply chains for onshore/building renewables• Total Community Retrofit – bringing it all together in holistic, integrated solutions
  9. 9. 9 Low Carbon : Low Energy Sustainable Built Environment• 80% carbon reduction target by 2050• Over 40% of CO2 emissions are from buildings –almost 40% from existing buildings (25% from Housing)• Over 80% of current buildings will still be in use by 2050• Reduce energy consumption in existing building stock and increase use of renewable fuels
  10. 10. 10 Eco-retrofit - Housing Challenge and Opportunityo 20 million + homes in 40 yearso 4 million social; 16 million privateo 600,000 homes a year for at least 30 yearso £500 billion market – huge opportunity
  11. 11. 11UK Renewable Energy Roadmap• the challenge is to bring costs down and increase usage• starting from a low level, UK aims to deliver 15% of energyconsumption from renewable sources by 2020• 8 technologies capable of delivering more than 90% of therenewable energy we need for 2020•Feed in Tariff / Renewable Heat Incentive ; Green Deal & ECO•Build local capacity and supply chains
  12. 12. 12 Incentives/Finance - driving demand• Feed in Tariffs (FiT) – 2010 /11• CERT, CESP, ERDF, Decent Homes, etc. ongoing• Public/Private sector investment – energy efficiency & renewables• Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) – 2012 and 2013• Green Deal (2012), ECO (2013)• Social and Private Housing programmes – community level schemes• Social housing is leading the way - Birmingham - Manchester - Haringey/North London - UK wide
  13. 13. 13 Do feed-in tariffs work? Influence of FITs on annual PV installations in Germany (MWp) Feed-in tariffs (FITs) – source EPIA now used in over 60 countries/states to incentivise uptake of small-scale renewables Germany: annual installed capacity of PV grew by factor of 70 over 7 years In 2009 Germany installed 6GW of PV (equivalent of 3 million Graph - Supporting Solar Photovoltaic Electricity - an argument for FITs (EPIA) installations on homes) Source: Renewable Energy Association
  14. 14. 14 Green Deal Through our ‘Green Deal’, we will encourage home energy efficiencyimprovements paid for by savings fromenergy bills. We will also take measures to improve energy efficiency inbusinesses and public sector buildings. The Coalition: our programme for government (May 2010)
  15. 15. 15 FLASH Low Carbon Building Retrofit• The £10 million FLASH (Facilitation, Learning and Sharing) programme, partfunded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), aims to support astep change in the built environment industry by engaging London based SMEswith the commercial potential of low carbon building/retrofit, renewable energygeneration and resource efficiency•Through the Institute’s strategic partnership with the Technology Strategy Boardbusinesses can access learning from the UK’s leading retrofit demonstratorprojects• FLASH also helps built environment businesses understand how the low carbonagenda can lead to new business and economic advantage . This includesimproving their own operations to help make them more competitive, as well ascontributing to carbon reduction targets

  29. 29. 29 RE: Start Local• current procurement processes (particularly public sector) mitigate againstSMEs•SMEs tend to avoid public procurement because of perceived and actualdifficulties•New low carbon/renewable energy programmes favour major providers andGreen Deal / ECO likely to reinforce•Wide body of goodwill (and self interest) towards more local /SMEprocurement and supply... but it takes concerted effort to achieve•Need for better prepared / better organised local suppliers and supplychains
  30. 30. 30 RE: Start LocalWhats it about ?
  31. 31. 31 RE: Start Local• Clustering of large scale procurers (Councils, HA’s, private Corporates, etc)to create local investment/supply opportunities for SMEs•Grouping of SMEs into cooperatives, local supply clusters etc to bid in forwork and large volume supply•Creation of contractual/commercial frameworks that provide level playingfield for SMEs – Social Value Act 2012, Green Deal, RHI, etc•Focusing on the renewable technologies and hybrids that have maximumopportunity for building scale in local regions – biomass, solar PV/solarthermal, heat pumps etc•Maximising “pre competition” engagement between procurers and SMEsupply chains
  32. 32. 32Climate Market Accelerator• A competition was run as part of the Climate Market Accelerator (CMA) project, which aimsto speed up the time it takes for climate change adaptation and mitigation innovations toreach the market• Market ready and close to market solutions for real world challenges identified bySainsbury’s. 4 competition winners will demonstrate their innovation at a Sainsbury’ssupermarket with the potential to roll out across stores in the UK• Sustainable Innovations Forums are being set up for property owners, investors andmanagers in the following areas: commercial/municipal, residential and retail. Thiscompetition was the first activity undertaken by the Retail Sustainable Innovations Forum, ledby Sainsbury’s- Sainsburys, Tesco. Waitrose, Marks & Spencer etc- Land Securities, Hammerson, Grosvenor, Legal & General, Canary Wharf Group etc- G15 – top 15 major Social Landlords in London/SE ; plus GLA and London Councils
  33. 33. 33 Climate Market Accelerator.Competition challengeSainsbury’s identified two areas where they are still looking for optimal solutions; lighting andwater use.LightingLighting accounts for between approximately 14% and 20% of energy use in stores. Whileinvestments have been made in new, more efficient products and careful design, there ispotential to reduce energy consumption further. Relatively small efficiency savings areimportant – just a few per cent increase in efficiency could result in significant energy savingswhen applied to more than 900 stores.WaterSainsbury’s has already reduced its water consumption by one-third to three million m3 perannum and is looking for ways to reduce this further. Rainwater harvesting is alreadyemployed, with large roof areas providing more grey water than can be used withinstores, where there is still a substantial requirement for clean water, including for cleaningand hot food production areas.
