  39. 39. Renewable Energy Opportunities in the Trump Era US Cleantech Market Intelligence Webinar 15 March 2018 Mark T. Sweeney, Esq. Hodgson Russ LLP
  40. 40. § The President’s rejection of Climate Change and aggressive rollback of the Obama Administration’s policies and regulations aimed at combating Climate Change have put the future of renewable development at the forefront of U.S. Energy policy. § Similarly, the President’s close ties to the Oil and Gas Industry plus his strong support for coal has ignited concerns regarding the federal government’s continued support or critical elements of renewable energy financing, tax credits and other subsidies and altering wholesale power markets to benefit coal and nuclear generation. Trump Energy Policy Fundamentals
  41. 41. § Climate change is no longer a fundamental danger shaping energy policy § US withdrawal from Paris Climate Accord § Intent to rescind the Clean Power Plan § Eliminating this driver of policy has resulted in the rollback of federal environmental regulations aimed a combatting the effects of climate change § Free of the need to address this danger, the federal government has opened federal lands previously declared off-limits for oil and gas exploration § “We have ended the war on American energy – and we have ended the war on beautiful, clean coal.” President Trump’s State of the Union speech The Fall of Climate Change
  42. 42. § Utility sector does not like the uncertainty and market turmoil that Trump’s policies creates. § Could affect the utilities views on the fuel mix for generation in extended term § Replacement of the Clean Power Plan § EPA directed to develop new regulations to replace Clean Power plan § This is a complex regulatory exercise that may take years to complete and will likely be litigated for even longer § By setting much weaker CO2 targets for states, coal plants could be tweaked with modest improvements only and eliminating the need to add renewable power or convert to natural gas. Risks to Renewable Energy
  43. 43. § Tarriffs on Solar Panels, Steel and other commodities needed to achieve standards set by States § Puts further pressure on marginally economic projects § Lifting of Ban on drilling in the Artic Wildlife Refuge in Alaska § Dept. of Interior must identify lands in the 1.5 million acres of the refuge along the coastal plain for leases § Estimates show that 5 to 16 billion barrels of oil are contained there Risks to Renewables (Cont’d)
  44. 44. § Market forces and the need for Investor Owned utilities to provide electricity to rate payers at regulated rates have and continues to drive out coal fired generation § Data shows that investor owned utilities expect to continue to retire coal-fired generation and that there is virtually no expectation to add more coal capacity in the next decade. Utility Dive 2018 Survey § Utilities plan out power mix changes significantly in advance and the largest sectors for continued growth remain as follows: § utility scale solar and wind, § distributed generation and storage, and § natural gas. § Production Tax Credits and Investment Tax Credits were preserved in the round out of the President’s tax cut bill. Will Coal Trump Renewables?
  45. 45. Policy Changes Imapct?
  46. 46. § State and Regional efforts to maintain environmental and renewable energy policies are expected to continue and even increase § 29 states have adopted standard requiring utilities to meet targets for increased reliance on renewable fuels § California: 33% by 2020, 40% by 2024 and 50% by 2030 § New York: 50% by 2030 § Market forces will also soften the impact of such moves § Utilities are overwhelmingly opposed to attempts to reshape wholesale power markets and its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on grid resilience was rejected by FERC § DOE refuses to use emergency authority under the Federal Power Act to keep uneconomic coal plants in operation. Utility Dive, Feb. 20, 2018 Will Coal Trump Renewables (cont’d)
  47. 47. § Large investments in Renewables continue Wind and Solar Growth

  49. 49. Achieving Resiliency: How Microgrids are Changing the Face of Energy Delivery US Cleantech Market Intelligence Webinar 15 March 2018 Daniel A. Spitzer, Esq Hodgson Russ LLP
  50. 50. The Need for Resliency § For those in America to whom Climate Change was an abstract discussion, Superstorm Sandy made the worst scenario real. § During Sandy, over 8.5 million people lost light or heat (DOE 2012); over 1.1 million customers lost power in New York City alone (NYS 2100 Commission 2013). § But university campuses, housing projects and individual buildings that had installed a “microgrid,” an integrated system of power generation and distribution able to separate itself from the main electric grid and operate on its own, even though the main electric grid failed. Why Microgrids? Why Now?
  51. 51. What is a Microgrid? § A microgrid is a smaller version of the electric grid, indeed the first electric systems built by Edison were one power plant and its customers. The most common definition, is “a group of interconnected loads and distributed energy resources within clearly defined electrical boundaries that acts as a single controllable entity with respect to the grid and that connects and disconnects from such grid to enable it to operate in both grid-connected or `island’ mode.” (DOE 2011). § There are three types of microgrids: standalone systems in remote areas, systems covering a single building, and those covering a unified set of properties, such as a college campus or residential development.
  52. 52. Microgrids Integrate Different Types of Generation With Advanced Power Management Systems To Serve A Geographically Limited Area
  53. 53. Microgrids Support The New Business Model § There is a renewed deregulation across the American electric industry, that is restructuring how utility companies raise revenue. The basic model of the utility business – a regulated monopoly protected from competition – is under assault as various states push electric utilities from their traditional commodity-based model, which maximizes profits by maximizing investment in utility-owned infrastructure and increasing energy sales, to a service-provider model, with revenue based on service provided and generating and other system assets owned by the customers or third-parties
  54. 54. New Model of Electric Service
  55. 55. The Rise of Microgrids § Microgrids can also help address the grid stability issues (maintaining the required synchronization of current and voltage, balancing loads with available power) that are presented by adding significant volumes of wind and solar to power grids, because of the very different nature of these variable generating sources compared with traditional thermal generation sources. Utilities worldwide have identified difficulties in handling inflows of renewable resources.
  56. 56. MICROGRID FINANCES § Since microgrids can sell energy back to the grid, will they be regulated as utilities? If so, what level of regulatory oversight will be applied? Will they have regulated tariffs, or will revenue levels in non-single owner setups be left to the users? § How will continuing service be assured if third-parties own the microgrid? Will there be quality of service requirements for microgrids backed by third-party insurance, or will utilities have to pick up service under “Provider-of-Last-Resort” rules? The Barriers – Legal and Regulatory – Are Greater than the TechnicalIssues
  57. 57. MICROGRID FINANCES § Will regulators allow microgrids to sell services to the grid on an equal basis with any other customer – i.e., no discrimination. § If microgrids can sell energy and grid stability services, how will the market operate? § If the effort to decarbonize is serious, will a social cost of carbon be included so that DG based microgrids can compete with natural gas based microgrids? The Barriers – Legal and Regulatory
  58. 58. MICROGRID IMPLEMENTATION § The interplay between the local utility and the microgrid remains uncertain, at best, and clear regulations outlining the relationship are essential to attract third-party investment. - Will the utility be expected to provide backup power? If so, how will tariffs be set at reasonable rates? - Can microgrids connect a neighborhood using existing power lines? If so, at what cost? Can the microgrid use utility right-of-ways? - Microgrids take customers away from utilities; utilities assert they have to be compensated for assets constructed for those customers but now no longer needed – so-called “stranded assets.” Will the microgrids have to compensate the utility for stranded assets? The Barriers – Utility/Microgrid Relationships
  59. 59. MICROGRID FINANCES § Advances in microgrid deployment will require financial innovations as well as regulatory certainty. For example, Schneider Electric is promoting a no- money down microgrid installation. The ability to craft financial solutions, and potentially securitize packages of microgrid loans, is certainly more difficult than with solar given the uniqueness of each installation, but represents the type of advance that can significantly reduce cost and promote new installations. Financial Barriers
