background
Background
  • Clean and Diversified Energy Initiative launched in June 2004
  • “Identifying ways to increase the contribution of renewable energy, energy efficiency, and clean energy technologies within the context of the overall energy needs of the West.”
  • Transportation, buildings, electricity, and other needs
goals
Goals
  • 30,000 more MW of clean energy by 2015 (EE, solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, clean coal, advanced natural gas)
  • 20% electricity savings by 2020, relative to reference case
  • Ability to meet transmission needs of the West for the next 25 years.
  • Better position Western energy system to respond to new environmental challenges
clean and diversified energy advisory committee
Clean and Diversified Energy Advisory Committee
  • To identify technically and financially viable policy mechanisms, stressing non-mandatory, incentive-based approaches
  • Formed task forces for specific options such as energy efficiency
    • Consider price, reliability, and the mitigation of environmental impacts of all recommendations
    • Develop energy efficiency recommendations that take into account all types of energy used in buildings, not just electricity
  • Identified cost-effective energy efficiency that can reduce annual load growth in the West from 2% to 0.5% .
task force recommendations state level
Task Force Recommendations – State Level
  • Electricity
    • Require utilities to integrate cost effective DSM into resource planning and procurement
    • Dedicate at least 2% of revenues to energy efficiency (if cost effective (CE))
    • Establish minimum savings targets
      • Recommend 3-5% of projected sales in 2010 (if CE)
      • Recommend 10-15% of projected sales in 2020 (if CE)
        • Decouple
        • Add incentives for implementing CE DSM programs
task force gas
Task Force – Gas
  • Encourage or require utilities to
    • integrate EE into resource planning and procurement
    • pursue EE whenever it is the lowest cost resource option
  • Recommend investing 1.5-2% of revenues on EE
  • Recommend 0.5-1.0% savings per year (if CE)
      • Decouple, add incentives for implementing CE DSM programs
task force building energy codes
Task Force – Building Energy Codes
  • Adopt the 2004 International Energy Conservation Cost, and consider features of CA Title-24
  • Update codes frequently (3-yr cycle suggested)
  • Implement code training and technical assistance for architects, builders and local code inspectors.
  • Establish a “reach code” for state-owned buildings to exceed the standards
  • Establish a regional building code collaborative
others
Others
  • Adopt minimum efficiency standards for appliances not covered by federal standards
  • Establish goals for reducing energy intensity by 2%/yr or greater in state buildings
  • Consider providing tax incentives
  • Decouple and adopt inverted block rates for residential electricity and consider for natural gas
  • Continue and expand education and training
  • Initiate, continue and expand R&D
task force regional initiatives
Task Force – Regional Initiatives
  • Create regional market-transformation organizations
    • Promote energy star, train the building sector, develop targets and standards, promote best practices, and perform R&D.
  • Building energy code collaborative
  • Coordinated appliance standards advocacy
  • Quantify air emission benefits of EE
  • Inclusion of EE in transmission planning
  • Develop a working group to help overcome the barriers to implementing EE in commercial and public buildings.
