  1. 1. A presentation for USGBC South Florida June, June 2010 Local Government EECBG Implementation
  2. 2. WRT Approach: Sustainable Comprehensive Planning pp p g
  3. 3. WRT Team: CTG Energetics g SOLUTIONS FOR SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS & COMMUNITIES Energy Sustainable Design Commissioning Sustainable Facilities S i bl F ili i Sustainable Communities Climate Change LEED www.ctg
  4. 4. Biloxi’s Energy Strategy: An Opportunity gy gy pp y Size: 46.5 Square Miles Population: +/- 50,000
  5. 5. Biloxi’s Energy Strategy: An Opportunity gy gy pp y What Motivated Biloxi: • A new Comprehensive Plan • Federal funding available to the City – Biloxi allotted $209,000 • Energy planning considered good fiscal management f l • Greater environmental awareness
  6. 6. Biloxi’s Energy Strategy: An Opportunity gy gy pp y
  7. 7. Biloxi’s Energy Strategy: An Opportunity gy gy pp y Lifecycle of the Built Environment - Where do you start your energy planning? Planning Design & Construction Sustainable Facilities Goal Setting/ Visioning Sustainable Design Support Management Baselines, Metrics & Indicators Energy Analysis Sustainable Facilities Assessment Sustainability Analysis Green Building Rating Systems Energy Auditing Climate Action Plans Commissioning Retro-Commissioning Energy Master Plans M&V Protocols Monitoring and Verification Climate Entitlement Support Customized Web-Based Tools Strategy development
  8. 8. Biloxi’s Energy Strategy: Getting Started gy gy g Planning Considerations: EECBG Program Eligible Activities 1. Preparing the Energy Strategy • Only first year is for planning 2. 3. Technical Consulting Services Building Audits 4. Financial Incentive Programs • Leverage your $$$ – jump start 5. 5 Energy Effi i E Efficiency R t fit Retrofits 6. Building & Facilities Programs broader sustainability planning 7. Transportation Programs 8. Building Codes & Inspections • Create a broad working g p g group 9. Energy Distribution 10. 10 Material Conservation P M t i lC ti Programs for input 11. Management of Methane & GHG 12. Traffic Signals & Street Lighting • Establish working goals ASAP 13. Renewable Energy Technologies on Government Buildings based b d on planning scale and l i l d 14. O Other Ideas budget
  9. 9. Biloxi’s Energy Strategy: Getting Started gy gy g • EECBG Eligible Activities for Biloxi’s gy Strategy: – Completing the Energy Strategy (EECS) – Public Building Audits – Energy Efficiency Retrofits – Building & Facilities Programs – Transportation Programs – Traffic Signals & Street Lighting
  10. 10. Biloxi’s Energy Strategy: Completing the Work gy gy p g How to get it done! • 120 day clock – create an aggressive schedule • “Don’t reinvent the wheel” – Chicago model • Have your team in place with experienced advisors • Gather data and resources prior to beginning if p possible – especially on establishing a baseline p y g of energy consumption
  11. 11. Biloxi’s Energy Strategy: Completing the Work gy gy p g Communication with the Department of Energy (DOE) • Electronic communication very important • Be flexible with change Be aware of Federal reporting requirements – regular activity sheets
  12. 12. Biloxi’s Energy Strategy: Crossing the Finish Line gy gy g Attachment D: • Executive Summary of EECS • Four Pages & Six Questions • Goals, Implementation, Coordination, and Monitoring Biloxi’s Attachment D is currently being reviewed by DOE
  13. 13. Biloxi’s Energy Strategy: Crossing the Finish Line gy gy g Emphasis on Timelines & EECBG Performance Metrics: Measureable Results 1.Energy Saved 1E S d 2.Renewable Energy Capacity Installed Biloxi’s activities is in four p phases: 3.GHG Emissions Reduced 4.Funds Leveraged • Phase 1: EECS Preparation 5.Jobs Created / Saved • Phase 2: Building Audits/Retrofits • Phase 3: Monitoring • Phase 4: Expand Improvements p p EECS to be completed within first 120 days Phases 1 3 are to be completed in 24 months (End of 2011) 1-3 Phase 4, transportation improvements, and regional utility coordination are ongoing
  14. 14. Biloxi Energy Strategy: Lessons Learned gy gy • Prepare ahead! • Use Experienced Technical Advisors for Improved Results • Think of the EECS as a catalyst/beginning for more comprehensive sustainable planning • Balance bigger systems solutions with small, no cost/low cost actions
  15. 15. Biloxi Energy Strategy: Planning Resources gy gy g • US Department of Energy (DOE): • US DOE: gy g State profiles are here: • US Energy Information Administration: Information on State resources and consumption • Open Energy Information: • DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory: www nrel gov/ Mapping (solar, wind, biomass, etc.) by State • Portfolio Manager: Tracking T ki energy consumption over time i i • Pew Center on Global Climate Change: Information on l i l i around the Country f i legislation d h C
