agenda
Agenda

Our Project

Renewable Energy Globally and Locally

Wind and Hamilton

the project
The Project
  • Long-Term:
    • Establish Relationship With Class
    • Indentify, strategize, and implement methods by which Hamilton may be a destination for Green Energy Industries
  • Short-Term
    • Identify PR issues in Hamilton Wind Industry Attraction
    • Identify input and output values of Wind Industry
    • Identify strategy to disseminate above information
renewable energy globally
Renewable Energy Globally
  • In 2010, 119 countries had made policy commitments in some form to RE. Up from 55 in 2005
    • Usage, direct investments, policy directions and targets
  • Also in 2010, RE industry grew by about 6.8% from previous year, to be valued at $322.5 bil
    • Value in 2015 projected at $479.9 billion, up 48.8%

ontario green energy act
Ontario Green Energy Act
  • Introduced to Ontario Legislature February 2009, passed in May 2009
  • “Streamlined approvals for renewable energy projects, spurring renewable energy investment while working with municipalities and ensuring strong protection for health, safety and community consultation.
  • Mandatory (unless waived by buyer) home energy audits prior to the sale of homes.
  • Developing a Feed-in-tariff system to provide guaranteed prices for renewable energy projects, with a related focus on helping companies, farmers, Co-ops and other groups navigate the approvals process, creating Ontario jobs, and developing a smart grid which, among its benefits, will support this new energy supply. .
  • Opportunities for municipalities, First Nation and Métis communities to build, own and operate their own renewable energy projects.
  • New programs for municipalities, communities and Aboriginal groups to ensure some project costs associated with community renewable energy projects can be recovered.
  • Establishment of an academic research chair to examine potential public health effects of renewable energy projects.”
  • Government of Ontario. “Ontario Legislature Passes Green Energy Act.” (May, 2009). Accessed November 2011.

ontario s tech corridor
Ontario’s Tech Corridor
  • Analysis of the competitive strengths of the various regions along the OTC
    • Based on 23 Key Indicators (Labour, Development Costs, Transportation infrasturcture, etc.)
  • Hamilton fairs competitively strong
wind and hamilton
Wind and Hamilton
  • Despite competitive strengths in attracting and implementing Green Energy Industries (in this case, wind)...
    • NIMBYism push back
    • Political influence and actions
  • Not specific to Hamilton, but not conducive to industry attraction
regional nimbyism
Regional “NIMBYism”
  • Wind Concerns Ontario (http://windconcernsontario.wordpress.com/)
  • Society for Wind Vigilance (http://www.windvigilance.com/)
which brings us back to the project
Which brings us back to the project...
  • Concern regarding impact of “NIMBYism” and political influence
  • Determine values of the Wind Industry to Hamilton
    • Output values (energy production, rates)
    • Input values (local value chain... materials, manpower, manufacturing, construction)
  • Summarize & Synthesize
  • Develop education strategy to express this value
benefits to hamilton
Benefits to Hamilton
  • 10.5 PYE/MW in construction stage
  • Become alternative energy hub
    • “Green friendly” reputation
    • Province-wide race
  • New business partnerships
  • Hamilton businesses already working on green energy projects (e.g. GE, Bushman Avontec)
case study wolfe island
Case Study: Wolfe Island

197.8 MW wind farm comprised of 86 turbines

Generates 593,500 MHh per year

400 employed at height of construction

271 PYE during construction

Direct cumulative local economic benefit: $25M

$3M per year local economic benefit going forward

education strategy
Education Strategy

Continued synthesis of information into “bite-sized” data

Creation of “Infographics” on Output and Input Value for Social Media dissemination, also prompting political action

What’s an Infographic?
