  7. 7. The Need to Eliminate Heavy Oil PlaNYC sets out to achieve the cleanest air quality of any large U.S. City. Eliminating the use of heavy oil is the single highest-impact step we can take towards this goal.• ~10,000 buildings in NYC use heavy oil• These buildings emit more soot pollution than all cars and trucks in the city combined• No other U.S. city allows heavy oil use for heating and NYC consumption exceeds 40% of total U.S. commercial sector sales• Particulate matter and other pollutant concentrations are greater in neighborhoods with significant heavy oil usage• These pollutants lead to adverse health effects, especially in individuals with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions• Switching from heavy oil to ultra-low sulfur #2 oil or natural gas lowers particulate matter by 80% and heavy metals by 99%NYCleanHeat.org P-7
  8. 8. NYCleanHeat.org P-8
  9. 9. Rule Phasing Out Heavy Oil• On April 21, 2011, after two years of stakeholder engagement, Mayor Bloomberg finalized rules phasing out heavy heating oil. The rules will yield significant near-term public health benefits while minimizing costs to buildings.• The new rules require that: – No new #6 or #4 boilers will be permitted, effective immediately – No #6 oil permit renewals after July 1, 2012 – All boilers must use cleanest fuels (ULS #2 oil, gas, or equivalent) upon retirement or by 2030, whichever is sooner – Compliance waivers will be considered• Near-term health benefits: – More than half of the rule’s health benefits will be realized by 2015 – Each year thereafter: – 130 lives will be saved – 190 hospitalizations will be avoided – 60 emergency room visits will be avoided – 1,500 fewer people will die by 2031NYCleanHeat.org P-9
  10. 10. NYC Moves to Clean• In tandem with developing the rule phasing out heavy oil, the City pursued legislation at the State level and locally to require cleaner classes of #2 and #4 oil. The passage of these laws was an integral part of the overall public health strategy.• State Law Cleaning #2 Oil (A.8642-A/S.1145-C) – Limits the sulfur content of #2 heating oil to 15 parts per million beginning July 1, 2012. – Represents a 99% reduction in sulfur content, down from 2,000 ppm – Will dramatically reduce air emissions from 70% of NYC households that use #2 oil• Local Law Cleaning #4 Oil (LL 43 of 2009) – Limits the sulfur content of #4 heating oil to 1,500 ppm beginning October 1, 2012 – Represents a 50% reduction in sulfur content, down from 3,000 pm – Requires 2% biodiesel admixture in all heating oilsNYCleanHeat.org P - 10
  11. 11. Clean Heat PilotFocused on accelerating the adoption of cleaner fuels• Achieve particulate matter reduction• Realize public health benefits soonerPilot targets:• Morningside Heights Neighborhood• Top #6 oil users• #6 building with immediate access to natural gas from Con Ed and National GridPilot goals:• Identify what works and what needs to be addressed• Gather data to understand what is happening in the market place• Create processes or tools that would be necessary for full implementationNYCleanHeat.org P - 11
  12. 12. Switch to No. 2 oilNot every building can get natural gas • Switch to No. 2 oil while waiting for gas line • New low sulfur No. 4 oil and No. 2 oil closer in price • Reduction in maintenance costs • Reduced oil consumption due to increased boiler efficiency • Issue with oil tankNYCleanHeat.org P - 12
  13. 13. Clean Heat ResourcesNYCleanHeat.org P - 13
  14. 14. Participating Contractors Clean Heat can connect you with qualified contractors, engineers, and vendors Participants will meet professional criteria and agree to program requirements Participants that fail to meet standards will be removedNYCleanHeat.org P - 14

  16. 16. Above: dirty boiler tubes. Below: Clean boiler tuLayers of soot on boiler tubesleads to decreased heat transferNYCleanHeat.org P - 16
  17. 17. EXAMPLE: OPERATING COST COMPARISON ASSUMING A 5% FUEL USAGE REDUCTION WITH NO. 2 OIL COMPARED TO NO. 4 OIL: No. 4 No. 2 Oil Approx. savings (50,000 gallons) (47,500 gallons) with No. 2 oil Fuel Cost $145,250 $145,378 -$128 (according to 2011 averages) Electrical Cost $1,000 $0 $1,000 Boiler Cleaning $1,200 $600 $600 TOTAL $147,450 $145,978 $1472 Based on a conservative estimate of a 5% fuel usage reduction due to improved heat transfer within the boiler and including the effect of the lower energy content of #2 oil[i] Average prices for 2011 according to monthly averages provided by Castle Oil for the months of January to April 2011. The average price difference between No. 2 andNo. 4 oil was $0.15/gallon.[ii] At. $2.91/gallon (price as of April 2011).[iii] At $3.06/gallon (price as of April 2011). NYCleanHeat.org P - 17
  18. 18. Case Studies will strengthen the case toswitch all the way to No. 2 (while waiting forgas line) Manhattan Coop building • Burned 27,000 gallons of #6 oil in winter 2009/2010 • 10% fewer gallons consumed in 2010/2011 despite increase in number of heating degree days • Improved heat transfer in boilerSeeking additional case study information •Looking for buildings and/or contractors to share their storiesNYCleanHeat.org P - 18
  19. 19. Information Resources Five Steps to Clean Heat The following five steps provide a road map for buildings Clean Heat website will be to stop burning #6 fuel oil. A part of a building conversion launched in December there may be opportunities to reduce fuel costs, increase efficiencies, mitigate environmental impacts and lower your building’s operating costs. Website will include case Representatives from Clean Heat re available to help you studies, step-by-step with any or all of the steps that will enable you to move to a cleaner burning fuel guides, and technical resources Step 1. Know when you need to switch Step 2. Understand your options Website will also connect Step 3. Obtain Costs from a qualified contractor buildings with financing Step 4. Connect with your fuel provider and contractor resources Step 5. Evaluate your financing optionsNYCleanHeat.org P - 19
  20. 20. Gas Distribution Upgrades Aggregating properties for conversion to natural gas can lead to economies of scale for system reinforcement and minimize gas connection costs A program manager is needed to coordinate collective action Large building with high fuel usage Large passes utility revenue test; receives Gas Service Application Property service extension for zero cost Moderately sized building fails to Moderately pass revenue test and must pay for Sized cost of service extension Properties Group of buildings converting to gas collectively pass revenue test and Conversion Cluster receive service for zero-costNYCleanHeat.org P - 20

  102. 102. Supportive Housing provides stable housing for some of the mostvulnerable populations; the Supportive Housing Network of NewYork works so that our members can achieve their missions Supportive housing is affordable housing with on-site services and case management staff “The Network” is nonprofit membership organization representing over 200 supportive housing providers across the state www.shnny.org
  103. 103. The Living Green Pilot Program is a result of theNetwork’s Weatherization Assistance Program(WAP) Community Partnership The Network partnered with the Association for Energy Affordability (AEA) to weatherize over 2,500 units of supportive, affordable, and transitional housing in the greater NYC region The Network was committed to expanding the energy saving process beyond WAP construction; did not want the energy saving process to end when construction was complete
  104. 104. Living Green Pilot Program is dedicated to theidea that tenants and staff are integralcomponents in the green retrofit process The Network hired an Environmental Psychologist to help develop a conservation education pilot program “Living Green” was based on the Community Based Social Marketing theory  “Understand tenants attitudes and behaviors towards conservation and develop a building specific program that fits their needs.” Three recently retrofitted buildings were chosen for Living Green Pilot Program  K&L Apartments – Senior Affordable Housing  Mercy Gardens – Supportive Housing for Single Women  Clinton Residence – Supportive Housing for Formerly Homeless Individuals
  105. 105. Each pilot building had a specializedtenant education program Network staff surveyed building staff on perceived tenant habits in building Met with tenants to identify tenant issues in the building and to develop effective educational tactics Focused on conservation issues relevant to each building to develop a four session educational series Created lesson plans and materials for each building; conducted sessions with the help of building staff Awarded tenants for participation; evaluated program with tenants and staff
  106. 106. Lesson plans ranged from climate changepresentations to hands-on, conservationrelated crafts Living Green at K&L Apartments presented images to connect the importance of saving energy to the impacts of climate change Mercy Gardens tenants signed pledges to save water and electricity Clinton Residence residents created magnets for PTAC units and light switch plates
