  • Renewable energy= effective use

    of natural resources such as

    sunlight, wind, rain, tides and

    geothermal heat, which are

    naturally replenished.

  • Watt= The unit of power

  • A kilowatt-hour= the amount of

    energy equivalent to a power of 1

    kilowatt running for 1 hour


  • 1000 kWh = 1 Megawatt-hour (MWh)

  • Renewable Energy Certificates (REC) =

    tradable certificates that represent all the

    clean energy benefits of electricity

    generated from a renewable electric system

  • 1 MWh = 1 REC


  • Net-Meteringand Interconnection Standards Interconnection

    • State regulations that permit small generators (< 2MWs) to be

      installed behind the meter.

    • These generators cannot be sized to produce more than current site


    • Mandates that utilities connect them to the grid.

  • Net-Metering

    • State regulations that allow interconnected generators to offset their

    • electric consumption with an on-site resource.

    • Allows production of electricity beyond site consumption to be

      credited at the full retail rate to be used when needed.

Net Zero Electric

Net Zero Site Energy: A site ZEB produces at least as much energy as it uses in a year, when accounted for at the site. Net Zero Source Energy: A source ZEB produces at least as much energy as it uses in a year, when accounted for at the source. Source energy refers to the primary energy used to generate and deliver energy to the site. To calculate a building's total source energy, imported and exported energy is multiplies by the appropriate site-to-source conversion multipliers. Net Zero Energy Costs: In a cost ZEB, the amount of money the utility pays the building owner for the energy the building exports to the grid is at least equal to the amount the owner pays the utility for the energy services and energy used over the year. Net Zero Energy Emissions: A net-zero emissions building produces at least as much emissions-free renewable energy as it uses from emissions-producing energy sources

New Jersey’s Solution

  • Renewable Resources

    • Wind:

    • Shore, highlands

    • Sustained winds of

    • 12 mph

    • Solar:

    • Output ~1200 kWh

    • AC

    • Biomass:

    • 25% composed of

    • organic & urban

    • residues (food wastes)

  • Government Activism

    • “20/20” RPS plan

    • 20% GHG legislation

    • Energy Master Plan

    • BPU commitment

    • Today

    • 55 MW PV solar

    • 3350 installs

    • 3 MW Biomass

    • 2.6 MW Wind

    • Tomorrow

    • 1,500 MW Solar

    • 1,000 MW

    • Offshore Wind

    • 200 MW

    • Onshore Wind

    • 900 MW Biomass

    New jersey s clean energy goals
    New Jersey’s Clean EnergyGoals

    20% by 2020

    20% reduction in Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2020

    and 80% below 2006 levels by 2050

    20% reduction in energy use by 2020

    20% use of renewable energy by 2020

    2.12 percent solar photovoltaic by 2020

    The combination of energy efficiency, conservation, and renewable energy resources should allow New Jersey to meet future increase in demand without increasing its reliance on non-renewable resources

    A clear definition
    A Clear Definition

    Energy Footprint

    • An energy footprint is a measure of land

      required to absorb the CO2emissions.

      Carbon Footprint

    • A measure of the exclusive total amount of carbon dioxide emissions that is directly or indirectly causedby an activity…

    Municipal audits local state governments
    Municipal Audits: Local/State Governments

    • Local Gov – Standard term contract list

    • Provide 75% of the audit cost

    • Implement cost effective measures within a set

    • timeframe

    • Receive balance of 25% of audit cost upon

    • completion

    • Solar PowerWell established business infrastructure

      and thriving market in New Jersey

    • Wind poweris the conversion of wind energy into useful

      form of electricity, using wind turbines. Increasing in

      popularity, but many hurdles and myths need to be


    • Biopowerutilizes biogas that can easily be produced

      from current waste streams such as Landfill Gas,

      WWTF, BioCrops, etc...

    • Fuel Cellsare the newest RE technology

    2009 renewable energy program
    2009 Renewable Energy Program

    • The Renewable Energy Program will continue to support solar electricity, small wind, sustainable biomass equipment, and fuel cells.

      • On-site behind the meter still capped at 2 MW, but these rules are

        being reviewed

      • Community Energy (one large system for multiple building) rules

        are being developed

      • Rebates for small solar systems (probably < 50kW)

      • Financial incentives for wind and biomass projects will stay the


      • The SREC program (non-rebated projects) will continue to be


      • SREC securitization and Utility Company solar loan programs are

        being developed

    Energy metering


    Real-time data

    Energy efficiency

    Monitoring performance

    Data analysis of facility performance

    Making the invisible…visible!


    Not infusing technology into the process to achieve real-time data.

    Not knowing how the facility is functioning.

    Not in compliance with the Energy Plan.
