  1. 1. A+ for Energy ® Energy Educator Training Conferences Sponsored by BP, Presented in Partnership with The NEED Project and NREL The Great Lakes Energy Story Illinois, Ohio, and Indiana
  2. 2. The Illinois Energy Story <ul><li>A central location and well-developed infrastructure make Illinois a key transportation hub for energy supplies moving throughout the Midwest. </li></ul><ul><li>Illinois accounts for roughly one-tenth of total nuclear-powered electricity generation in the United States. </li></ul><ul><li>Illinois leads the Midwest in refining capacity. </li></ul><ul><li>Illinois is one of the top producers of ethanol in the Nation. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Indiana Energy Story <ul><li>As one of the nation’s top corn-producing states, Indiana has significant ethanol production potential. </li></ul><ul><li>The BP Products refinery in Whiting has the largest processing capacity of any refinery outside of the Gulf Coast region. </li></ul><ul><li>Industrial sector consumption contributes to the State’s high total and per capita energy consumption. </li></ul><ul><li>Almost all of Indiana’s electricity generation is fueled by coal. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Ohio Energy Story <ul><li>Ohio’s industrial sector energy consumption ranks among the highest in the nation. </li></ul><ul><li>Ohio has the second-highest refining capacity in the Midwest, after Illinois. </li></ul><ul><li>A proposed pipeline from the Rocky Mountains could increase Ohio’s total natural gas supply in the near future. </li></ul><ul><li>In August 2003, a transmission failure in Ohio led to the largest blackout in North American history, affecting over 50 million people. </li></ul><ul><li>Coal typically fuels about nine-tenths of net electricity generation in Ohio. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Great Lakes State Data <ul><li>Illinois Population: 12.9 million (4 th in U.S.) </li></ul><ul><li>Indiana Population: 6.3 million (14 th ) </li></ul><ul><li>Ohio Population: 11.5 million (6 th ) </li></ul><ul><li>Major industries: refining, chemicals, glass, metals, steel, agriculture. Ohio ranks among the highest in industrial energy consumption. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Coal <ul><li>Ohio imports more than 2/3 rd of it’s coal from other states and generates 9/10 ths of its electricity from coal. </li></ul><ul><li>Although Illinois represents 1/10 th of the nation’s goal reserves, it does not rank as high in coal production due to geologic conditions, surface development, and the high-sulfur content of the coal. </li></ul><ul><li>Indiana’s moderate coal reserves produce most of the State’s electricity. Indiana’s use of coal in coke plants, which service the State’s steel industry, is the top in the nation. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Oil and Natural Gas <ul><li>Illinois, Ohio, and Indiana all have minimal to moderate oil and gas reserves mainly located in the Illinois Basin. </li></ul><ul><li>The region has substantial refining capacity with the BP Whiting Refinery having the largest capacity outside of the Gulf Coast. </li></ul><ul><li>The region consumes substantial oil and natural gas for transportation, heating, and electricity generation. For example, 2/3 rds of Indiana homes are heated with natural gas. </li></ul><ul><li>Illinois, although a small producer of natural gas, is the hub for substantial natural gas supply transport in the U.S. and ranks 2 nd to Michigan for gas storage capability. </li></ul>

  9. 9. Illinois Energy Map
  10. 10. Indiana Energy Map
  11. 11. Electricity <ul><li>Prices for electricity in the Great Lakes are below the national average of 10.24 cents/kWh. (Illinois 9.9, Indiana 7.95, Ohio 9.16). </li></ul><ul><li>Generation is high with 11,224 million mWh in Indiana; 15,701 million mWh in Illinois, and 13,091 million mWh in Ohio. Illinois ranks 1 st in Nuclear Generation in the U.S. with nearly 50% of its electricity from uranium. </li></ul><ul><li>Other generating sources include coal, natural gas, and hydropower. Renewable potential is high – especially for offshore wind on Lake Erie (Ohio). </li></ul>
  12. 12. Biomass/BioFuels <ul><li>Region is rich in agriculture with substantial corn and soybean capability for ethanol and biodiesel production. </li></ul><ul><li>Illinois has 7 ethanol plants and 17,744 alternative fuel vehicles licensed in the state. </li></ul><ul><li>Ohio has 1 ethanol plant and 12,022 AFVs. </li></ul><ul><li>Indiana has 7 ethanol plants and 7,940 AFVs. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Consumption <ul><li>Region among the highest in the U.S. for per capita consumption of total energy. National rankings: Ohio (22 nd ), Illinois (33 rd ), and Indiana (8 th ). </li></ul><ul><li>Region consumes 11,209 trillion Btus of energy. (Ohio 4,082 trillion; Indiana 2,905 trillion; and Illinois 4,122 trillion). </li></ul><ul><li>Heavy consumption is related to heavy industry energy use for energy intensive industries – steel, refining, chemicals. </li></ul>
  14. 14. The Future <ul><li>Significant Energy Efficiency policies in place throughout the region. </li></ul><ul><li>Substantial industrial energy use activities in place to reduce energy intensity in the industrial process. </li></ul><ul><li>Renewables development in wind and solar with incentives in place for solar and wind development. </li></ul><ul><li>Significant capability for agri-energy development with feedstocks for transportation fuels and electricity generation. </li></ul><ul><li>Utilities integrating demand-side management, real time pricing, and load-shedding programs. </li></ul>
