goals
Goals
  • EE/RE – the lay of the land
  • EPA’s Roadmap
  • Touring a few states
what is ee re
What is EE/RE?
  • Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy policies and programs
      • Require parties to use or fund EE/RE through regulation, statute or Public Utility Commission (PUC) order
      • Increase adoption of energy efficient practices
        • End-user education and incentives (e.g., consumer awareness and rebate programs)
      • Increase production and use of RE sources (e.g., solar, wind, biomass)
  • Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) and Energy Efficiency Resource Standards (EERS) can be state requirements that include any of the above

elements for success when incorporating ee re in sips
Elements for Success when incorporating EE/RE in SIPs
  • State-wide policies produce greater potential emission benefits
  • Dialogue between air and energy agencies

Energy agencies provide

prospective view of energy

savings (for SIP submittal) and

retrospective view (verification)

  • Quantification tools to determine if and to what extent an EE/RE initiative is affecting a particular nonattainment area
past experiences with ee re in sips
Past Experiences with EE/RE in SIPs
  • 2004 EE/RE guidance
  • Feedback from states
    • The expected SIP credit was not worth the analysis effort.
    • Documentation requirements were burdensome.
    • Achievable emissions reductions were not clear.
    • More detailed EPA guidance needed.
epa s roadmap
EPA’s Roadmap
  • Help states include EE/RE in SIPs
  • Roadmap
    • Clarifies existing guidance
    • Lays out four pathways for SIP credit
    • Identifies quantification approaches
  • Resources/Tools
    • Baseline analysis - Projected energy impacts of “on-the-books” state EE/RE policies
    • AVoided Emissions and geneRation Tool (AVERT) - emissions quantification (translates EE/RE to emissions)
    • Frequently Asked Questions
4 pathways
4 Pathways

* May be the load serving entity required to implement EE/RE.

** If a municipality has initiated a measure, then the state may delegate responsibility to the municipality.

baseline analysis ee re policies in aeo 2013
Baseline Analysis – EE/RE Policies in AEO 2013

EPA and most states use the AEO 2013 energy policy assumptions in their SIP baseline emission projections.

Policy Assessment Criteria

Adopted in state legislation or Public Utility Commission (PUC) order (i.e. “on-the-books”)

Goal:

quantification from basic to sophisticated
Quantification –from Basic to Sophisticated

Basic

eGRID region non-baseload emission rates

Sophisticated

Energy Modeling

Intermediate

Historical Hourly Emissions Rates

Economic parameters

End use demand

User-defined constraints

Environmental regulations

Energy Model

Technology data

Emission factors

Fuel data

avert
AVERT
  • EPA-developed quantification tool
  • Addresses a key reason states have not implemented previous EE/RE SIP guidance
  • Simulates dispatch to predict hourly changes in generation and emissions (NOx, SO2 and CO2) at electric generating units (EGUs) due to EE/RE
    • Uses actual data reported to EPA’s Clean Air Markets Division (CAMD) through Acid Rain Program
