Ghg reduction what s required of the electric sector
GHG Reduction: What’s Required of the Electric Sector?

  • 169 MMT of total reductions needed to reach the 2020 target of 427 MMT

  • CARB’s Draft Scoping Plan describes several incremental reduction measures that could impact PG&E if adopted:

CSI existing program targets are expected to contribute an additional 2.1 MMT


Pg e compliance exposure remains uncertain
PG&E Compliance Exposure Remains Uncertain

  • CARB continues to develop its AB32 recommendations but PG&E has limited direct GHG emissions

  • PG&E has been focused on reducing its direct and indirect emissions


Pg e continues to emphasize energy efficiency
PG&E Continues to Emphasize Energy Efficiency

  • PG&E’s EE programs have contributed significant savings and are expected to provide even more in the next decade

    • Over 1,000 MW of installed energy efficiency projects in the last 5 years

    • An additional 1,050 MW expected over the next 3 years

  • CARB’s EE targets rely on ambitious government action, technology advancement, market transformation, and unprecedented customer adoption and rebate levels

  • CHP as a GHG reduction measure is uncertain

    • CHP must have true efficiency advantages and be matched against existing thermal load to achieve reductions

    • Based on currently available information, it’s questionable whether efficient CHP capacity exists for the 30,000 GWh described in the Draft Scoping Plan


Pg e will reach and exceed 20 renewables
PG&E Will Reach and Exceed 20% Renewables

  • PG&E has 24% RPS eligible resources under contract for future delivery

  • Pursuing power contracts with diverse energy technologies

  • Seeking new supply options both within and outside of state

  • Key components to achieving RPS targets remain elusive

    • Extension of ITC and PTC

    • Transmission improvements

    • Expedited permitting approvals

    • Developer performance and timing consistent with contract

Given the challenges with reaching 20% RPS, is 33% achievable by 2020?


Pg e s role in a california cap and trade
PG&E’s Role in a California Cap-and-Trade

  • PG&E will focus on mitigating significant increases in costs to its customers that may arise in a cap-and-trade

  • Compliance will result mostly from:

    • Role as a “first deliverer” of imports

    • Recent commitments to utility-owned fossil generation

    • PG&E may have a role in managing compliance costs for some power producers

All of the uncertainties with EE, RPS and cap-and-trade suggest a need for high quality offsets and other cost containment measures


Current options for compliance strategies
Current Options for Compliance Strategies

  • Strategies for compliance with a cap-and-trade

    • Reduce energy consumption through EE and DR programs

    • Reduce carbon content of energy delivered with low or no carbon energy through PPAs, UOG and Distributed Generation

    • Purchase allowances

    • Purchase offsets

  • One of the key pre-compliance options are offsets where rules and protocols remain in flux

Need defined rules to encourage offset market development before it can be a viable pre-compliance option


Pg e procurement accomplishments to date
PG&E Procurement Accomplishments to Date

Since resuming procurement in January 2003, PG&E has worked to restore system reliability and implement the state’s policy goals

  • Energy Efficiency: Over 1,000MW of installed energy efficiency projects

  • Demand Reduction: About 750 MW of dependable programs

  • Renewables: Almost 3,700 MW under contract

  • California Solar Initiative: PG& E began implementation January 1, 2007 and has installed 232 MW of solar units at more than 25,000sites

  • The 2004 LTRFO and utility-owned generation: 3,000 MW of new, efficient gas-fired generation

  • The 2008 LTRFO seeks 800-1,200 MW of new, efficient, flexible resources
