East Midlands Players 30th January 2009

  1. 1. Presentation to the East Midlands Regional ‘Players’ <It’s the delivery stupid!> <A shared journey to a low carbon future?> Richard Davies Director
  2. 2. Good Morning

  4. 4. quot;Regardless of which route we choose, the world's current predicament limits our maneuvering room. We are experiencing a step-change in the growth rate of energy demand due to population growth and economic development, and Shell estimates that after 2015 supplies of easy-to-access oil and gas will no longer keep up with demand.quot; Jeroen van der Veer, CEO Shell 28th January 2008
  5. 5. Fuels used in E generation/Mtoe Fuel 2003 2007 Coal 31.6 31.9 Oil 0.7 0.8 Gas 24.5 27.5 Nuclear 20.0 14.0 Hydro 0.2 0.4 Other renewables 0.4 0.6 Net imports 0.2 0.4
  6. 6. EU 20/20/20 by 2020 • UK Target = 15% of all energy from renewables by 2020 (cf 1.5% currently) • Suggested that to meet this some 36% of electricity will come from wind by 2020 (onshore & offshore) • ~36% of Electricity = 123,120,000,000 kWh/annum • Or 46,849 MW of wind needed by 2020 (BWEA say 33,000 MW) • Equal to 15,000 x 3MW turbines • 3,750 MW/annum • 1,250 x 3MW turbines/annum • Or 5 per day (weekends off!) for the next 12 years • 2007 saw UK deliver 450 MW (need a 9 fold increase in rate of deployment compared with last year)
  7. 7. DEMAND REDUCTION The heart of the matter • In 2003 final consumption of E was 336,218GWh • In 2007 final consumption of E was 341,945GWh • Up 1.7% or 5,727GWh • All wind projects (on and offshore) in 2007 generated some 5,274GWh of E • This was just 92% of the extra electricity we used over 48 months ending 2007 • Simplistically we are collectively squandering the efforts to DECARBONISE because we are failing to reduce DEMAND
  8. 8. We’re seeking to deliver on the 3Ds: Demand Reduction Decarbonisation Decentralisation
  9. 9. To Address: Climate Change + Energy Security = The Same Actions + Finite Fossil Fuel
  10. 10. To help: deliver on the UK’s commitment to the climate change challenge, whilst helping to ensure that there is a sustainable, secure and affordable supply of energy for everyone. We aim to contribute to these goals in ways that strengthen the economic capability, social capital and reputation of the areas in which we work.
  11. 11. With some principles: 1. We don’t seek to duplicate existing effective activity 2. Seek to develop activity, product & service which meet an unmet need (vacuum test) 3. Aim to inject some regional & sub- regional vision 4. We like portfolio funding (£1 = £5) 5. Don’t like ‘dominant’ contracts (Need to pass the ‘honest broker’ test)
  12. 12. East Midlands population: 4.4 million CO2 : 41 million tonnes Nigeria population: 140 million CO2 : 52 million tonnes
  13. 13. East Midlands & Sustainable Energy LEADERSHIP! ‘If the leader hath no vision the people will perish’ Proverbs 29:18
  14. 14. Case Studies
  15. 15. MPs to taste award-winning beer A Shropshire brewery is to have one of its beers put on sale at the House of Commons. Hobson’s Mild will be the guest beer in the Strangers Bar in the run up to Christmas after a request by MP for Ludlow, Philip Dunne. The beer is brewed in his constituency in Cleobury Mortimer, near Ludlow, and was voted the best in Britain at the Great British Beer Festival in August. The 3.2% drink was described by judges as having quot;plenty of hop characterquot;. It was selected ahead of more than 50 beers, some made by major brewers, in eight different categories. quot;It is good to see a decade of hard work bearing fruit so well in my constituency,quot; Mr Dunne said. The Hobson's Brewery was established in 1993. Story from BBC NEWS: http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/-/1/hi/england/shropshire/7046428.stm © BBC MMVIII
  16. 16. What is it? • £1 million grant scheme (50/50 capital and revenue) • 2 year pilot programme : Apr ’08 – Mar ’10 • partnership between SC and MEA funded via RRZ and AWM • an evolution of Low Carbon Communities for Business • URSUS report
  17. 17. Where? Inside, or serving, the Zone- feasibility and capital grants Staffordshire and Shropshire- feasibility alone
  18. 18. Initial contact with SME Registers with RE:think Energy Efficiency alone - Energy Efficiency & Renewables Exit ineligible or Renewables alone Insufficient potential Exit Energy Assessment Business Link review Sufficient potential Full application form SC credit reference check Not awarded grant Appraisal presented to board awarded grant Exit
  19. 19. Low Carbon Community Overview
  20. 20. LAEP/MEA Summary 1. MEA should never duplicate existing effective sustainable energy and climate change activity within Nottingham & Derbyshire. 2. MEA seeks to establish over a 24 month period (April 2009 – March 2011) and aims for a team of 10 full time staff operating out of two centres. 3. Target gross income at the end of the initial business plan period will be £500k 4. It is the intention of MEA’s operation in the East Midlands to move away from a subscription based service for projects to the model operating in the West Midlands, whereby there is no core funding for MEA from any source. All funding is for the delivery of projects. This intent includes the subscriptions for the Campaign and core services for support through the LAEP 5. MEA will focus on Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire over the initial 24 month period, but if no obvious mechanism for delivering similar activity emerges from other localities within the East Midlands region then MEA may move to provide services over the whole region, given that this maintains or enhances the capability within Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire.
