    1. Audio:1 866 299-3188 Conference Code: 202 343 9965# ENERGY STAR & Cookie & Cracker Bakeries

    2. Agenda Background on ENERGY STAR ENERGY STAR Recognition Categories How EPA develops EPIs How the Cookie & Cracker EPI was developed Using the Cookie & Cracker EPI Applying for the ENERGY STAR

    3. What is ENERGY STAR? Voluntary Government Partnership Program Established by EPA in 1992 to help address climate change Focused on the energy efficiency of: Products Homes Buildings & Industrial Plants Organizations National symbol for energy efficiency

    4. ENERGY STAR for Buildings & Plants ENERGY STAR works with companies to develop stronger energy management programs by offering: Instructive Partnership Program Energy Management Guidance Energy Program Resources Sector Specific Tools & Resources Benchmarking & Tracking Tools Recognition Opportunities for Achievements Emphasis on corporate energy management practices

    5. ENERGY STAR Recognition

    6. The ENERGY STAR Label Awarded to selected consumer products, buildings, and industrial facilities that Demonstrate best-in-class energy performance based on an ENERGY STAR energy performance scale and Score 75 or higher.

    7. Scoring Energy Performance ENERGY STAR Energy Performance Indicators (EPIs): Sector-specific energy benchmarking tools for industrial sites. Compare the energy efficiency of a plant against the performance of the industry. Based on annual energy use and production (energy intensity). Normalized for product mix, size, location, and other factors. Establishes an energy performance scale for the industry.

    8. How EPIs are developed U.S. companies report production, energy, and other data to the U.S. Census. U.S. Census data forms the basis for the EPIs Researchers at Duke University analyze this data to evaluate how factors such as product mix, size, location, etc. affect energy use & intensity. A statistical model that reflects the actual distribution of energy performance in the sector is created and put into a spreadsheet (EPI). This model normalizes for statistically significant differences between plants. The model prevents disclosure of confidential company data. The EPI (model) is tested by industry representatives and revised (as necessary) based on industry feedback.

    9. The Cookie & Cracker EPI A Beta EPI was developed and released by Duke Univ. / EPA EPA approached BCMA to help with testing the EPI. BCMA Member companies involved with the Sustainability Committee participated in evaluating the EPI and providing feedback. Additional analysis was conducted and revisions where made to the beta EPI. A second beta EPI was released and tested Fall 2010 BCMA & EPA decided to finalize and release an EPI v.1

    10. The Cookie & Cracker EPI What it does: Compares your plants energy performance against the industries. Gives you a score that provides a context for understanding your performance. Provides scenarios for average & efficient plants based on your production characteristics.

    11. Basic requirements You must make cookies and/or crackers. 50% of total production must be cookies and/or crackers to earn the ENERGY STAR. Production numbers must be in pounds

    12. What do you mean by? Crackers: Crackers, biscuits, and related products (NAICS 3118212) Graham crackers (NAICS 311821 1331) Saltines (NAICS 311821 1111) Cracker meal and crumbs (NAICS 311821 1341) Cracker sandwiches (NAICS 311821 1221) Other crackers and related products (sponge, sprayed, low sugar biscuits, melba toast, unsalted soda crackers, taco shells, etc.) (NAICS 311821 1391) Cookies: Sandwich cookies (NAICS 311821 4111) Marshmallow cookies (NAICS 311821 4331) Creme-filled cookies (NAICS 311821 4341) Chocolate chip cookies (NAICS 311821 4221) Oatmeal cookies (NAICS 311821 4351) All other cookies and wafers (NAICS 311821 4361) Broad Categories find the best fit. No Frozen products. Toaster Pastries, cereal bars are currently not included.

    13. Annual Production Before entering data into the EPI, you will need to: Determine the 12 month period you will use. Sum all cookie products in thousand lbs. Sum all cracker products in thousand lbs. Make marshmallow cookies? Calculated the % of total cookie production based lbs. (thousands)

    14. Other Products The EPI adjusts for the production of other products besides cookies/crackers: Based on the share (%) of other products produced BUT is calculated based on dollar value: Determine the total $ value of all products produced Determine total $ value of all cookies/crackers or other products (e.g. cereal bars) Calculate the % that other represents E.g. % other = Sum (All Products-Cookies)/All Products Enter the % share (0 to 100) in EPI

    15. Energy data Gather all utility bills, invoices, and other purchasing records. Propane for fork lifts is not usually counted. Determine annual electric, gas, oil, etc. use. Purchased or transferred steam or compressed air must counted. This requires converting the purchased utility to MMBTUs for Steams or kWh for compressed air. You will need to obtain conversion efficiency from your vendor. E.g. 100 SCFM compressed air x 0.2 kW/SCFM x 4800 hours (per year) = 96,000 kWh Energy Cost data is optional Water utility data is not accounted for.

    17. Interpreting Results Successful benchmarking can help to: Plan and prioritize upgrade efforts and retrofits Make energy and water costs visible Identify best (and worst) building management practices within a building or across a portfolio of buildings Assess performance relative to peers in the same sector or across other sectors Identify areas of improvement and make informed management and investment decisions Communicate good results to the public Your customers can use the EPR system to prioritize improvements and upgrades. ENERGY STARs energy performance rating tool provides a third party evaluation of your customers properties the scores can be understood at any level of your customers organization Use the ratings to help your client organize priorities within their portfolio This tool can be used to: Sell higher in the organization: ENERGY STAR targets organizational decision makers with specific messages regarding committing to energy planning and efficiency upgrades across their portfolio You should be able to sell your services higher in the organization where ENERGY STAR messages have been embraced by decision makers Engage customers at the portfolio level: An initial planning exercise with your customers, for their portfolio, can be quick, allowing them to work with you to set priorities among their buildings The benchmark score is a valuable, first cut criteria in selecting the best investment targets, and you can become a critical resource for your customers as they move forward with a portfolio-wide initiative Facilitate aggressive upgrade decisions using unbiased tools: Selling portfolio-level services enables you to get more building upgrade projects moving faster Using the benchmark ensures that these buildings will produce high returns, which allows you to sell more upgrades sooner The tool can be used to set priorities across portfolios which can be done prior to building audits This means that the benchmarking tool allows your customers to work with you to decide where to best begin investing Scores of 75 or higher provide lessons learned and may be label candidates Scores of 50-75 are probably building candidates where operations and maintenance improvements may yield savings Scores below 50 are among candidates for best investment opportunities good candidates for whole building assessments and deep energy, comprehensive upgrades Successful benchmarking can help to: Plan and prioritize upgrade efforts and retrofits Make energy and water costs visible Identify best (and worst) building management practices within a building or across a portfolio of buildings Assess performance relative to peers in the same sector or across other sectors Identify areas of improvement and make informed management and investment decisions Communicate good results to the public Your customers can use the EPR system to prioritize improvements and upgrades.

    18. Appling for the ENERGY STAR Requirements: Site must be in the United States (includes territories) 50% of production is Cookies &/or Crackers Energy Performance Score of 75 or higher No major Clean Air Act violations within the past 3 years of application High Priority Violation (HPV) + large fine No criminal conviction for an environmental crime within past 5 years

    19. Verification Process Two Step verification process for applying for ENERGY STAR: Step 1 - Data Integrity & Accuracy Check Internal review conducted at the site or within the company. Step 2 EPI Integrity & Accuracy Check External review conducted off site.

    20. Step 1: Data Integrity & Accuracy A PE must verify that data used in EPI is accurate and from documented sources. PE must stamp and sign the Statement of Energy Performance (SEP) which is in the EPI. The reviewing PE can be from your company The signed SEP is sent to EPA with the application materials.

    21. Step 2: EPI Integrity & Accuracy The results in your EPI must be replicated by either EPA or our 3rd Party Reviewer. For EPA Review: Send a copy of the EPI to Rebecca Hindin at ENERGY STAR. For 3rd Party: Send a copy of the EPI to Gale Boyd at Duke University (gale.boyd@duke.edu) If data is considered CBI, send to Duke University. EPI copies sent to Duke Univ. are destroyed once score is verified.

    22. Application materials Request application materials by contacting Rebecca Hindin at EPA ENERGY STAR Hindin.rebecca@epa.gov Have questions about compliance status? Contact Rebecca.

    23. The ENERGY STAR Award Once your application is approved: Bronze plaque Graphic templates for Flags, Banners, etc. Letter to CEO Profile on ENERGY STAR web site Communication materials to help promote achievement. The ENERGY STAR is an annual award!

    24. Rules about the ENERGY STAR The ENERGY STAR is awarded to a facility, not its products or the company as a whole. You can communicate your site is best in class for energy efficiency. You cant say your cookies are ENERGY STAR certified You can and should publicized that your site earned the ENERGYSTAR.
