Saving Energy Now Indiana!

Who are we at OED?

  • Indiana’s state energy office like those in the other 50 states and territories.

  • OED is also the policy arm for Indiana’s energy policy working with both the Governor and Lt. Governor’s office.

  • OED’s major task in implementing and managing several grants and program that come mostly in the form of federal dollars from USDOE

Past, Present and Future: Program Background

  • OED funding primarily comes from the USDOE and currently we are under two major funding sources SEP (state energy program) ARRA and SEP Regular.

  • ARRA totaled nearly $90M dollars in multiple prescribed programs, and those are the “stimulus” dollars.

  • SEP Regular comes every year and averages between $600K and $1M per year.

The ARRA Programs

  • SEP: This program was funded with $68M primarily used for courting green jobs to Indiana in the manufacturing sector.

  • EECBG: Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant was funded with $14M and 60% went to non-entitlement communities and 40% went for a small business non-profit energy conservation grant.

  • IHIP: Indiana HVAC Incentive Program was funded with $6M and went to ENERGY STAR rated furnaces, boilers, central AC and heat pumps.

  • CHIP: Conserving Hoosier Industrial Power was funded with $2M and dedicated to our largest energy users for various eligible energy conservation projects.

SEP: Green jobs and green manufacturing

  • OED continues its partnership with IEDC in placing the SEP ARRA dollars into good hand of prospective companies expanding the green economy in Indiana

  • Without great detail I can say we have talked with groups from many green sectors including batteries, wind components, solar components, energy efficient appliance makers.

  • These dollars are beginning to flow in the Hoosier economy and will increase through late summer and fall.

EECBG: Communities and Business benefit

  • 104 grants were awarded to 84 eligible communities, counties or local government units in lighting retrofits, traffic signal/street light retrofit, structure retrofits, waste water treatment, and energy management systems.

  • 50 grants were awarded to small businesses, health care facilities, higher education, and non-profits for structural energy efficiency retrofits

IHIP: Helping Hoosiers stay ahead of the weather…

  • OED’s management of the IHIP program has been recognized by the USDOE a one of the nation’s best rebate programs.

  • 15,000 Hoosiers received rebates with a average of $400 per rebate

  • The program infused $23M dollars into the economy for retailers and manufacturers of the products.

CHIP: Helping industry help themselves…

  • This is our most recent program, recently scored and awards soon to be announced.

  • Developed originally to be a low interest loan program but loans garnered very few applications.

  • Once becoming a grant program over 30 large energy users applied for grants.

  • 11 projects received the awards and many of the projects are saving immense amounts of energy with modest incentive.

CHIP continued…

  • The grants range from $52K to $400K in award to the individual companies.

  • Grantees like ArcelorMittal, Frito Lay, Haynes International represent the commitment to energy efficiency in our industrial partners.

  • The 11 awards span the state proving that Indiana has big energy users in all regions and communities of all sizes where keeping Hoosiers employed is the #1 goal.

SEP Regular Programs

  • IST: Indiana Solar Thermal grant program funded with $150K for the installation of large solar thermal water heating units.

  • CCC: Community Conservation Challenge funded with $400K is geared toward non-profit entities and community scale energy conservation projects.

  • EEWT: Energy Efficiency for Water Treatment is being funded with $350K and is looking for energy conservation projects at both waste water treatment plants and water works pumping facilities.

IST: New solutions for everyday needs…

  • IST will provide up to $25K for an eligible project with the applicant providing at least 75% of the project cost.

  • Eligible applicants must use at least 100,000 gal. per year of hot water.

  • Businesses, non-profits, schools and municipalities are eligible applicants.

  • Applications due September 1, 2010

CCC: Public and private sectors working together for communities…

  • Non-profit entities are the eligible applicants but they must show broad private and public support within the community to be successful

  • Winning grantees will be eligible for a minimum $50K to a maximum $100K in awards with a 50% cost match from the project partners

  • Eligible technologies are very broad, ranging from traditional retrofits to green roofs

  • Applications are due October 1, 2010

EEWT: The lost energy users

  • The amount of energy needed at waterworks and waste water treatment plants is usually not evident to the average citizen.

  • The entities will be eligible for a minimum $25K and a maximum $100K with a required 50% cost share from the entity

  • Eligible projects include energy efficient pumps, motors, and methane recovery

  • Applications are due on October 29, 2010

Retrofit Ramp-Up

  • The OED assisted the City of Indianapolis and the City of Lafayette in applying for USDOE funds to complete a Retrofit Ramp-Up.

  • Both Lafayette and Indianapolis will be using their award of $10M on community based approaches to bring energy efficiency to neighborhoods within their cities.

  • Indianapolis plans to use their Retrofit Ramp-Up accomplishments as part of a Super Bowl Showcase in 2012 when the big game comes to Indianapolis.

Indiana Energy Conservation Database

  • OED is joining with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission and the State Utility Forecasting Group with funding for a statewide energy conservation database.

  • The purpose of such a project is for Indiana to be able to see results from it various energy conservation efforts in a centralized data center

  • This will help Indiana tell its story of energy conservation and the accomplishments of our residential, business, and utility sectors
