Waste-to-Energy

Waste-to-Energy is a modern, proven process for safe disposal of municipal solid waste and generation of clean, renewable energy from the heat released by the combusted waste.

Waste-to-Energy facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art air pollution control systems and are operated by professionals certified by US EPA and American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

There are 89 waste-to-energy facilities in 27 states that:

  • Combust MSW to reduce its volume
  • Produce energy, usually as electricity
  • Recover ferrous and sometimes non-ferrous metals for recycling

Renewable Portfolio Standards
  • Setting a Renewable Portfolio Standard
  • 1.How should a renewable portfolio standard be set?
    • a.Based on a megawatt goal?
    • b.Based on a percentage of peak generation goal?
    • c.What renewable technologies should qualify toward meeting the goal?
  • 2.What vintage of renewable generating units should qualify toward meeting the goal?
  • 3.What is a reasonable level for the goal?
    • a.What amount of renewable generation is achievable in Florida?

Renewable Portfolio Standards

Renewable Energy Sources that should be included in a Renewable Portfolio Standard

  • Chapter 366
    • 366.91 -- "Renewable energy" means electrical energy produced from a method that uses one or more of the following fuels or energy sources: hydrogen produced from sources other than fossil fuels, biomass, solar energy, geothermal energy, wind energy, ocean energy, and hydroelectric power. The term includes the alternative energy resource, waste heat, from sulfuric acid manufacturing operations.
      • "Biomass" means a power source that is comprised of, but not limited to, combustible residues or gases from forest products manufacturing, agricultural and orchard crops, waste products from livestock and poultry operations and food processing, urban wood waste, municipal solid waste, municipal liquid waste treatment operations, and landfill gas.

Renewable Portfolio Standards

Requirement should be set as a percentage of total, annual electric sales

  • A fixed MWhr requirement does not provide for concomitant growth of renewable energy along with electric load growth.
  • A percentage requirement provides incentive for utilities to implement additional demand-side activities.

Renewable Portfolio Standards

What vintage of renewable generating units should qualify toward meeting the goal?

  • New renewable energy facilities
    • RPS must provide incentive for new renewable energy generation
  • Existing renewable energy facilities
    • RPS must help protect existing base of renewable energy generation

Wheelabrator Technologies Inc.

Think Green.®

renewable portfolio standards18
Renewable Portfolio Standards

New renewable energy facilities

  • RPS must provide incentive for new renewable energy generation
    • Establish definition of “new”
      • “New” renewable energy is capacity that is established after the effective date of the RPS rule
      • Establish “age“ for transition from “new” to existing
        • e.g. 10 years after qualifying as a “new” facility

Renewable Portfolio Standards

“New” renewable energy is capacity that is established after the effective date of the RPS rule

- New, “greenfield” facilities

- Increased capacity at existing facilities

- Addition of new generating capacity

- Efficiency improvements that lead to increased generation

Renewable Portfolio Standards

“New” renewable energy is capacity that is established after the effective date of the RPS rule

  • Ambitious goals
  • Alternative Compliance Payment
    • If utilities are unable to obtain required amount of renewable energy

“New” renewable energy

Alternative Compliance Payment

  • At what level should ACP be set?
    • High enough to provide incentive for utilities to search out and provide incentives for new renewable capacity
  • Experience of other states with ACPs

“New” renewable energy

Alternative Compliance Payment

  • Experience of other states with ACPs
    • e.g., Massachusetts
  • 1.0% by 2003   1.5% by 2004   2.0% by 2005   2.5% by 2006   3.0% by 2007   3.5% by 2008   4.0% by 2009   an additional 1.0% each year afterward until DOER ends add’l reqmnts
  • 2007 ACP $57.12 /MWh
  • Utilities have paid ACP every year since 2003

“New” renewable energy

Alternative Compliance Payment

  • At what level should ACP be set?
    • High enough to provide incentive for utilities to search out and provide incentives for new renewable capacity
  • Experience of other states with ACPs
  • Uses for ACP funds?
    • Development of new, promising technologies; seed money for construction of new facilities; etc.

What is a reasonable level for the goal?

Current Renewable Generation in Florida

  • 1* - 2.5%

* Florida’s Energy Plan

  • Goal: ?
    • Governor’s goal – 20%
    • Over what time period?
    • How aggressive?
