Presentation Transcript
  • Renewable energy= effective use

of natural resources such as

sunlight, wind, rain, tides and

geothermal heat, which are

naturally replenished.

  • Watt= The unit of power
  • A kilowatt-hour= the amount of

energy equivalent to a power of 1

kilowatt running for 1 hour

  • 1000 kWh = 1 Megawatt-hour (MWh)
  • Renewable Energy Certificates (REC) =

tradable certificates that represent all the

clean energy benefits of electricity

generated from a renewable electric system

  • 1 MWh = 1 REC
  • Net-Meteringand Interconnection Standards Interconnection
    • State regulations that permit small generators (< 2MWs) to be

installed behind the meter.

    • These generators cannot be sized to produce more than current site


    • Mandates that utilities connect them to the grid.
  • Net-Metering
    • State regulations that allow interconnected generators to offset their
    • electric consumption with an on-site resource.
    • Allows production of electricity beyond site consumption to be

credited at the full retail rate to be used when needed.


Net Zero Electric

Net Zero Site Energy: A site ZEB produces at least as much energy as it uses in a year, when accounted for at the site. Net Zero Source Energy: A source ZEB produces at least as much energy as it uses in a year, when accounted for at the source. Source energy refers to the primary energy used to generate and deliver energy to the site. To calculate a building's total source energy, imported and exported energy is multiplies by the appropriate site-to-source conversion multipliers. Net Zero Energy Costs: In a cost ZEB, the amount of money the utility pays the building owner for the energy the building exports to the grid is at least equal to the amount the owner pays the utility for the energy services and energy used over the year. Net Zero Energy Emissions: A net-zero emissions building produces at least as much emissions-free renewable energy as it uses from emissions-producing energy sources

new jersey s clean energy goals
New Jersey’s Clean EnergyGoals

20% by 2020

20% reduction in Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2020

and 80% below 2006 levels by 2050

20% reduction in energy use by 2020

20% use of renewable energy by 2020

2.12 percent solar photovoltaic by 2020

The combination of energy efficiency, conservation, and renewable energy resources should allow New Jersey to meet future increase in demand without increasing its reliance on non-renewable resources

Energy Footprint

  • An energy footprint is a measure of land

required to absorb the CO2emissions.

Carbon Footprint

  • A measure of the exclusive total amount of carbon dioxide emissions that is directly or indirectly causedby an activity…

  • Wind poweris the conversion of wind energy into useful

form of electricity, using wind turbines. Increasing in

popularity, but many hurdles and myths need to be


  • Biopowerutilizes biogas that can easily be produced

from current waste streams such as Landfill Gas,

WWTF, BioCrops, etc...

  • Fuel Cellsare the newest RE technology
2009 renewable energy program
2009 Renewable Energy Program
  • The Renewable Energy Program will continue to support solar electricity, small wind, sustainable biomass equipment, and fuel cells.
    • On-site behind the meter still capped at 2 MW, but these rules are

being reviewed

    • Community Energy (one large system for multiple building) rules

are being developed

    • Rebates for small solar systems (probably < 50kW)
    • Financial incentives for wind and biomass projects will stay the


    • The SREC program (non-rebated projects) will continue to be


    • SREC securitization and Utility Company solar loan programs are

being developed

Data analysis of facility performance

Making the invisible…visible!


Not infusing technology into the process to achieve real-time data.

Not knowing how the facility is functioning.

Not in compliance with the Energy Plan.
