Matthew Summy's presentation from America’s Sustainable Future: How U.S. Cities Are Making Energy Work, an invitational conference of public-private partnership efforts from U.S. cities pursuing innovative energy management and smart grid initiatives. The assembled leaders in industry, research and policy-making will explore the diverse energy strategies emerging in Philadelphia and across the United States.

“We’re really looking forward to both learning from the great examples set by other cities represented in the conference, and showing off the groundbreaking work happening right here in Philadelphia,” says Laurie Actman, Viridity Energy’s director of strategic partnerships and public policy.

“With smart ideas and smart policy, we should be able to build support for smart grid projects and microgrids at the federal, state and local level.”"Energy technology is changing at such a rapid pace, it's crucial to examine who's doing it right in smart grid and microgrid projects all around the country," says Eugenie Birch, Penn IUR co-director.

"With the right policy moves—which we'll be exploring at the conference—Philadelphia can be a national leader in energy innovation," noted Susan Wachter, Penn IUR co-director.

  9. 9. Creating Sustainable Urban Cores<br />Building are significant consumers of energy<br />On an annual basis, buildings in the United States consume 39% of America's energy and 68% of its electricity. <br />Buildings contribute to climate change<br /><ul><li>Buildings account for approximately 70% of City of Chicago’s emissions and are the primary target for reducing emissions through the City’s Climate Action Plan.</li></ul>Large commercial and residential buildings dominate downtown Chicago <br /><ul><li>They account for more than 1,000 MW of load
  10. 10. These buildings are vulnerable to high electric rates.</li></ul>Problem Set<br />
  11. 11. Creating Sustainable Urban Cores<br /> Large metropolitan areas such as the City of Chicago do not have the luxury of adding significant, cost-effective local generation.<br /> “Continued implementation of the [Chicago Climate Action] Plan can be reprioritized and accelerated to capture critical economic benefits, such as jobs, increased investment, and decreased costs of living through energy efficiency, clean energy, and sustainable investments.” – Rahm Emanuel transition plan <br />Problem Set<br />
  12. 12. Illinois Smart Buildings Initiative: Leveraging Converging Interests<br />Market Opportunity<br />
  13. 13. Illinois Smart Buildings Initiative:Project Description<br />Creating “smart building” those that incorporate innovative energy efficiency technologies and optimizing building operation with respect to market prices and other signals, is essential to mitigating rising energy costs.<br />The Illinois Smart Buildings Initiative (ISBI) is a multi-property project to install smart grid enabled technologies, capture building use data and refine new sustainable business models. <br /> <br />Approach<br />
  14. 14. Illinois Smart Buildings Initiative:Project Description<br /> The ISBI will be the first multi-building demand response, ancillary services and energy efficiency project in the U.S. <br /><ul><li>The ISBI will demonstrate demand side participation in PJM’s energy, capacity and ancillary service markets using advanced communications, control technology and energy efficient equipment installed in several multi-unit buildings. </li></ul>The ISBI will focus mainly on residential buildings in the first phase (75% residential/25% commercial) to allow for commercial building associations the opportunity to observe and create a business model that works across members.<br />Once the concept is validated it will be scalable and replicable to other buildings.<br />Engagement<br />

  16. 16. Illinois Smart Building Initiative:International Collaboration<br /> The ISBI was developed under a design collaboration between the Illinois Coalition, with support and co-investment from several Korean Consortia members. <br /> The ISBI provides the opportunity for Korean companies to deploy technology solutions and achieve market penetration in Chicago.<br /><ul><li>This includes not only the products required to test market interaction, but also other technology enhancements that will be available as part of ISBI execution.</li></ul> International collaboration is part of our economic development strategy to make Chicago a leader in energy optimization. <br /> We hope to become the center of an service industry related to the new business models that are being developed through the ISBI project. <br />
  17. 17. Illinois Smart Buildings Initiative:Technology Implementation<br /> The ISBI will incorporate the following improvements:<br /><ul><li>Building Energy Management System (BEMS) Integration (Energy Use Monitoring and Control strategies, Device and Equipment Monitoring and Control strategies, etc). A BEMS to control multiple buildings or BEMS to control each building.
  18. 18. Building Automation System (BAS) upgrades and integration to help maximize BEMS opportunities for wholesale market integration.
  19. 19. Network Operation Center (NOC) integration and operation to facilitate BEMS communication with the wholesale electricity markets. The NOC will be located in Chicago.
  20. 20. Home Energy Management (Approximately 10 units in each building).</li></li></ul><li>Illinois Smart Building Initiative:Goals and Benefits<br />Goal: Unlock new revenue streams for buildings, create jobs and showcase new business models.<br /><ul><li>It will open new markets through buildings acting as “virtual” power plants to provide increased power reliability, energy optimization and reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.
  21. 21. It is anticipated that the increased participation of large buildings in PJM’s markets will result in reduced energy prices for other customers in NE Illinois.
  22. 22. It will mitigate high electricity costs by allowing building operators to make better, more informed energy related decisions.
  23. 23. It will provide a funding stream for other energy efficient upgrades. </li></ul>The ISBI will create value through:<br /><ul><li>Provision of ancillary services and balancing for Intermittent renewable resources
  24. 24. Reductions in demand (efficiency)
  25. 25. Load shifting (demand response)
  26. 26. Increase operational capabilities and situational awareness (better building management and efficiency)
  27. 27.
