Bernie Kotlier - Energy Efficiency

  1. 1. REDUCING ENERGY COSTS Green Energy Solutions for Community, Corporate, and Industrial Facilities <ul><li>Bernie Kotlier </li></ul><ul><ul><li>IBEW-NECA / LMCC California </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Commerce, California </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>March 17, 2010 </li></ul></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>The Case for Green Energy </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cost of Energy (Electricity) Keeps Rising </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Climate Disruption, Including Water Supply </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>National Security / Energy Independence </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Job Creation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Stronger Economy </li></ul></ul>GREEN ENERGY
  3. 3. <ul><li>Driving Forces - Examples: </li></ul><ul><li>California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) Goals </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ALL New Construction ZERO Net Energy by </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2020 Residential </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2030 Commercial </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Likely to be a Model for the U.S. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For Federal ARRA Funded Projects </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Creates Jobs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Trackable, Reportable Employment Data </li></ul></ul>GREEN ENERGY
  4. 4. <ul><li>Green Energy </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Electricity is a Dominant Theme in Green Energy Because Electricity is the Common Thread and Form in the New Sustainable Energy Economy. Some Key Sources: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Photovoltaic Solar Electricity (“PV”) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wind Electrical Energy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Solar Thermal Electrical Generation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Electrical Energy Efficiency (EE), and … </li></ul></ul>GREEN ENERGY
  5. 5. <ul><li>The Opportunities </li></ul><ul><li>Most Compelling: COST SAVINGS. Numerous Opportunities; Some Applications: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Distributed Solar PV for Homes, Businesses, and Institutions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Energy Auditing of Buildings </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Applying Energy Efficiency Measures to Buildings Such as Highly Efficient Lighting and Lighting Control Systems </li></ul></ul>GREEN ENERGY
  6. 6. <ul><li>In the Proper Order </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A) Energy Audit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>B) Energy Efficiency (EE) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>C) Renewable Energy (RE) </li></ul></ul>GREEN ENERGY
  7. 7. <ul><li>Energy Audits are 1st Because </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We Need to Understand the Facility, its Energy Related Systems, Usage, and Costs BEFORE We Make Any Changes. Make Sense? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Would You Like Your Doctor to Operate on You Without Tests and Diagnosis? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If Your Car is Running Poorly Should the Engine be Replaced Before it is Diagnosed? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>And Then … Should the Most or Least Expensive Measures be Considered First? </li></ul></ul>GREEN ENERGY
  8. 8. <ul><li>Makes Perfect Sense, Yet … </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Solar PV Jobs and Other Energy Related Retrofit Work is Often Done Without First Doing a Comprehensive Facilities Energy Audit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Prospective Energy Savings are Not always Being Realized to Full Potential Because Property Owners and Managers Do Not Always Have All the Energy Information they Need to Make the Best Decisions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Energy Audit is the Diagnostic Tool that Provides the Comprehensive Data Required to Reduce Costs and Obtain the Best Return on Investment </li></ul></ul>GREEN ENERGY
  9. 9. <ul><li>And Energy Efficiency is a </li></ul><ul><li>Key Factor </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Facility Energy Efficiency (EE) is Making Interior and Exterior Electrical, Mechanical and Building Envelope Systems Work in a Highly Efficient Manner. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many EE Measures are Less Expensive Than Providing More Power from the Grid or from Distributed Generation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The Least Expensive Kilowatt is the One We Don’t Use! </li></ul></ul>GREEN ENERGY
  10. 10. Why Energy Audits? <ul><ul><li>$Billions in Federal Stimulus for EE projects </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Utility, and State incentives for EE projects </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>EE Costs Only 2.5 - 3.0 Cents / KWH </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Energy Auditing <ul><ul><li>Audits Conducted by Expert Contractors </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Two Phases </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Screening Survey – Identify the Savings Opportunities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Preliminary Energy Assessment (PEA) - Data Capture </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Quick introduction and summary, today </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. About Energy Assessments <ul><ul><li>Goals of facility energy assessment: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Find likely opportunities to save energy and save money </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Maybe retrofit or replace equipment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Make informed decisions </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Why Energy Assessments? <ul><li>Identify high-return energy efficiency upgrades: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce energy/overhead costs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Improved Operational Efficiency </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increase productivity via better indoor environment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increase building asset value … </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increased Asset Value </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>EE Upgrades </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Why Energy Assessments? <ul><li>INCREASED ASSET VALUE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Source: EPA “ENERGY STAR Buildings Partnership” Documentation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$1 invested >> </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>$2 – $3 increased value </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increased Asset Value </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>EE Upgrades </li></ul></ul>
