Saving Energy Now Indiana!

Who are we at oed
Who are we at OED?

  • Indiana’s state energy office like those in the other 50 states and territories.

  • OED is also the policy arm for Indiana’s energy policy working with both the Governor and Lt. Governor’s office.

  • OED’s major task in implementing and managing several grants and program that come mostly in the form of federal dollars from USDOE

Past present and future program background
Past, Present and Future: Program Background

  • OED funding primarily comes from the USDOE and currently we are under two major funding sources SEP (state energy program) ARRA and SEP Regular.

  • ARRA totaled nearly $90M dollars in multiple prescribed programs, and those are the “stimulus” dollars.

  • SEP Regular comes every year and averages between $600K and $1M per year.

The arra programs
The ARRA Programs

  • SEP: This program was funded with $68M primarily used for courting green jobs to Indiana in the manufacturing sector.

  • EECBG: Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant was funded with $14M and 60% went to non-entitlement communities and 40% went for a small business non-profit energy conservation grant.

  • IHIP: Indiana HVAC Incentive Program was funded with $6M and went to ENERGY STAR rated furnaces, boilers, central AC and heat pumps.

  • CHIP: Conserving Hoosier Industrial Power was funded with $2M and dedicated to our largest energy users for various eligible energy conservation projects.

Sep green jobs and green manufacturing
SEP: Green jobs and green manufacturing

  • OED continues its partnership with IEDC in placing the SEP ARRA dollars into good hand of prospective companies expanding the green economy in Indiana

  • Without great detail I can say we have talked with groups from many green sectors including batteries, wind components, solar components, energy efficient appliance makers.

  • These dollars are beginning to flow in the Hoosier economy and will increase through late summer and fall.

Eecbg communities and business benefit
EECBG: Communities and Business benefit

  • 104 grants were awarded to 84 eligible communities, counties or local government units in lighting retrofits, traffic signal/street light retrofit, structure retrofits, waste water treatment, and energy management systems.

  • 50 grants were awarded to small businesses, health care facilities, higher education, and non-profits for structural energy efficiency retrofits

Ihip helping hoosiers stay ahead of the weather
IHIP: Helping Hoosiers stay ahead of the weather…

  • OED’s management of the IHIP program has been recognized by the USDOE a one of the nation’s best rebate programs.

  • 15,000 Hoosiers received rebates with a average of $400 per rebate

  • The program infused $23M dollars into the economy for retailers and manufacturers of the products.

Chip helping industry help themselves
CHIP: Helping industry help themselves…

  • This is our most recent program, recently scored and awards soon to be announced.

  • Developed originally to be a low interest loan program but loans garnered very few applications.

  • Once becoming a grant program over 30 large energy users applied for grants.

  • 11 projects received the awards and many of the projects are saving immense amounts of energy with modest incentive.

Chip continued
CHIP continued…

  • The grants range from $52K to $400K in award to the individual companies.

  • Grantees like ArcelorMittal, Frito Lay, Haynes International represent the commitment to energy efficiency in our industrial partners.

  • The 11 awards span the state proving that Indiana has big energy users in all regions and communities of all sizes where keeping Hoosiers employed is the #1 goal.

Sep regular programs
SEP Regular Programs

  • IST: Indiana Solar Thermal grant program funded with $150K for the installation of large solar thermal water heating units.

  • CCC: Community Conservation Challenge funded with $400K is geared toward non-profit entities and community scale energy conservation projects.

  • EEWT: Energy Efficiency for Water Treatment is being funded with $350K and is looking for energy conservation projects at both waste water treatment plants and water works pumping facilities.

Ist new solutions for everyday needs
IST: New solutions for everyday needs…

  • IST will provide up to $25K for an eligible project with the applicant providing at least 75% of the project cost.

  • Eligible applicants must use at least 100,000 gal. per year of hot water.

  • Businesses, non-profits, schools and municipalities are eligible applicants.

  • Applications due September 1, 2010

Ccc public and private sectors working together for communities
CCC: Public and private sectors working together for communities…

  • Non-profit entities are the eligible applicants but they must show broad private and public support within the community to be successful

  • Winning grantees will be eligible for a minimum $50K to a maximum $100K in awards with a 50% cost match from the project partners

  • Eligible technologies are very broad, ranging from traditional retrofits to green roofs

  • Applications are due October 1, 2010

Eewt the lost energy users
EEWT: The lost energy users communities…

  • The amount of energy needed at waterworks and waste water treatment plants is usually not evident to the average citizen.

  • The entities will be eligible for a minimum $25K and a maximum $100K with a required 50% cost share from the entity

  • Eligible projects include energy efficient pumps, motors, and methane recovery

  • Applications are due on October 29, 2010

Retrofit ramp up
Retrofit Ramp-Up communities…

  • The OED assisted the City of Indianapolis and the City of Lafayette in applying for USDOE funds to complete a Retrofit Ramp-Up.

  • Both Lafayette and Indianapolis will be using their award of $10M on community based approaches to bring energy efficiency to neighborhoods within their cities.

  • Indianapolis plans to use their Retrofit Ramp-Up accomplishments as part of a Super Bowl Showcase in 2012 when the big game comes to Indianapolis.

Indiana energy conservation database
Indiana Energy Conservation Database communities…

  • OED is joining with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission and the State Utility Forecasting Group with funding for a statewide energy conservation database.

  • The purpose of such a project is for Indiana to be able to see results from it various energy conservation efforts in a centralized data center

  • This will help Indiana tell its story of energy conservation and the accomplishments of our residential, business, and utility sectors

Contact communities…
