  13. Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation (EDC) Energy Efficiency Program Peter A. Dea, Chairman Energy Committee, MDEDC

  14. Metro Denver EDC – Energy Efficiency Program • As the “Balanced Energy Capital of the West”Metro Denver needs to have a stronger energy efficiency program • Goal is to develop an energy efficiency program for the Metro Denver region • Colorado Energy Science Center, Pat Keegan, Executive Director, retained by MDEDC to design program • Focus Areas: • Commercial • Industrial • Residential • Leverage off existing programs especially Xcel Demand Side Management

  15. Metro Denver EDC – Energy Efficiency Program • Task Areas: • Assess Economic Impact of Energy Efficiency & Conservation • Survey of Current Energy Efficiency Programs in Colorado • Best Practices in U.S. • A Menu of Recommendations • Website (eventually) • Provide a Centralized Resource for Stakeholders to Seek Out Energy Efficiency Practices for Their Respective Entities

  16. Metro Denver EDC – Energy Efficiency Program Most Important Energy Efficiency Measures • Residential buildings: • Insulation and Air Leakage Reduction • High efficiency furnaces and air conditioners • Efficient lighting and appliances • Commercial buildings • Lighting • Heating Ventilating, Air Conditioning (HVAC) • Office equipment • Industrial facilities • Motors • HVAC • Lighting

  17. Metro Denver EDC – Energy Efficiency Program Electricity Energy Efficiency Potential in Colorado % Savings Potential in Three Sectors 30% 20% 25% Source: Western Resource Advocates

  18. Metro Denver EDC – Energy Efficiency Program Economic Analysis Approach • Jobs and Income Growth • Profitability of Energy Savings • Investment Opportunities • Economic Impact and Economic Multipliers

  19. Metro Denver EDC – Energy Efficiency Program Transportation Not Primary Focus of EDC Program But Denver is a National Leader with FasTracks etc. Energy Use Per Passenger Per Kilometer Gas Fired Buses Mega- Joules per person Yes on FasTracks

  20. Metro Denver EDC – Energy Efficiency Program Keys to Success in Metro Denver • Near Term • Completion of Comprehensive Recommendations • Buy in from 9 – County Metro Mayors • Communication and Encouragement of Program from Metro leaders to Stakeholders • Early Wins to Show Energy Efficiency Value • Long Term • Website • Continued Encouragement by Leaders • Xcel’s Demand Side Management program expansion • Incentive Programs in each Metro Community

  21. Metro Denver EDC – Energy Efficiency Program Balanced Energy Capital of West Metro Denver Supply • Vast Natural Gas Reserves • Center for Natural Gas Upstream, Midstream & Service Companies • Significant Coal Reserves • Clean Coal Technology Companies Demand • Growing Renewable & Energy Efficiency Companies • Renewable Energy & Efficiency Programs • Xcel’s Wind Power & DSM Research • World Class Research Institutions for EfficiencyRenewables & Supply Technologies

  22. Western Gas Resources (WGR) • Western’s Energy & Emissions Savings Program (ESP) Promotes: • Energy Savings • Efficiency Increases • Emissions Reduction • Cost Reduction • ESP Formalized Company-wide in 2004

  23. WGR Energy & Emissions Savings Program • Goals • Sustaining non-renewable energy sources • Increasing efficiency of work processes • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions • Utilizing renewable energy sources • Reduce costs and increase profits

  24. WGR Energy & Emissions Savings Program • Results • Cost reduction in millions of $ • Reduction of pollutants & greenhouse gases • Productivity increases • Consumption of fuel reduced • Positive culture shift

  25. WGR Energy & Emissions Savings Program Methodology • Increase Employee Involvement and Participation • Raise awareness of opportunities for everyday energy savings • Recognize individual accomplishments • Monthly & Annual Presidents’ Awards • Share ideas for emulation or adaptation to new uses • Publicize departmental accomplishments • Have some fun

  26. WGR Energy & Emissions Savings Program Participation • Realization • Not a spectator sport • Individual contributions are important • Participation = Success • Spread the word and encourage others in industry • (Your Company Name Here) Energy Savings Program

  27. WGR Energy & Emissions Savings Program Emission & Cost Reductions • Reduced 1,500 tons of greenhouse gases last year and 7,500 tons in the last four years in a Texas facility • Converted pneumatic instrumentation from gas to air saving $500K/year, eliminating 1,600 tons of emissions at one site • Preserved 1.23 BCF in fuel savings at a value $7.54 million in 2004 on one project alone • Solar-powered pumps installed company-wide as chemical injection pumps saving $500K/year in energy costs • 28,000 hp of lean burn compressors installed in our Coal Seam Operations saves $1,000,000/year in fuel consumption • WGR will enjoy more than 1.5 BCF of fuel reduction in 2005 by using lean-burn compression. • Reduced gathering pressure at one Wyoming facility and increasing production by 10% with low pressure pigging.

  28. WGR Energy & Emissions Savings Program ESP Projects • The Company estimates approximately 25 to 50 ESP ideas and projects will be submitted and acted upon each year. Examples: • Convert to Lean-burn compressors • Install solar-powered pumps • Convert natural gas driven pneumatics to compressed air driven. • Drive cleaners (pigs) through low-pressure lines to operate more efficiently

  29. Summary • Natural Gas Supply – Demand will continue to be tight • Requires Balanced Solution • Increase Supply of Fossil, Renewables & Efficiency • Decrease Demand • Expanded Research on Supply & Demand Solutions • Metro and Company Efficiency Programs must become main stream across nation • American Consumer is ultimately the largest participant in Efficiency & Conservation Programs
