  • Energy waste is pervasive.
  • Focus on supply-side efficiency. Inefficient generation of heat and power is elephant in the room.
  • See climate change legislation as an economic opportunity. Focus on the profitable reduction of greenhouse-gas emissions.

in efficient power system
Inefficient Power System
  • Three units of fuel are used to generate each unit of power – 33 percent efficiency.
  • Efficiency has not improved since President Eisenhower.
  • Thomas Edison’s power plants achieved 50% efficiency by capturing excess heat to warm nearby buildings.
  • U.S. is an international laggard. Germany, Japan, and other industrialized countries capture heat and power at more than twice the U.S. rate.

Decline of electric-sector efficiency

  • Implications:
  • US grid less efficient than 100 years ago
  • We pay too much for electricity so we can emit too much CO2
  • $70 billion potential savings if US returned to 1920s model

  • Significantly enhances mill’s competitive position.
  • Annual CO2 savings of 916,000 metric tons/year – more than all grid connected solar worldwide. Courtesy Primary Energy

clean energy standard offer program cesop
Clean Energy Standard Offer Program (CESOP)
  • Calculate the true costs of generating and delivering power from new centralized facilities.
  • Offer 20-year CESOP contracts to anyone delivering clean power for 80% of that cost.  
  • Consumers obtain a discount against current best deal for new power. Utilities keep their customers.

output based allocations
Output-Based Allocations
  • Provide each electric (and thermal) producer with allowances equal to average emissions.
  • Every plant must obtain allowances equal to its CO2 emissions – dirty plants purchase extra allowances from clean plants at market rates.
  • Reduce allowances every year to cut emissions.
  • Fiscally neutral – dirty generators pay clean generators.
  • Provides both sticks and carrots – immediate financial incentives to everyone who lowers GHG emissions.
