1 WADE Med Kickoff Rome March 20, 2009 David Sweet – Executive Director World Alliance for Decentralized Energy (WADE)

2 2  Non-profit research, promotion and advocacy organisation started in 1997  Mission is to accelerate the worldwide deployment of high- efficiency cogeneration, on-site power and decentralized energy systems  WADE is supported by:  National DE organisations  UK CHPA, USCHPA, Cogen Europe etc.  CHP/DE companies with international interests  Thermax, Capstone, Siemens, Caterpillar, Solar Turbines, FuelCell Energy, MTU, Marubeni, Primary Energy, Wärtsilä, etc About WADE

3 3 WADE Mission  WADE Research activities  Reports, market surveys and studies  WADE Economic Model  WADE Advocacy activities  Policy advise for governments  Participation in legislative and regulatory proceedings  Cooperation with International Organisations, Institutions and NGOs  WADE Promotion activities  WADE Conferences and events  WADE Newsletters

4 4 WADE Communications Research Reports COSPP Magazine Weekly Member Updates Market Information Websit e Monthly Newsletter

5 5 Applications of the WADE Economic Model  Australia - Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization  Canada - Federal Government of Canada (Natural Resources Canada)  China - UK Government (Foreign Office), for China  EU - European Commission – DG-FER programme  Ireland - Government of Ireland (Sustainable Energy Ireland)  Sri Lanka - European Commission  Germany - IZES for the Ministry of Environment  UK - Greenpeace UK  UK – Department of Trade and Industry  USA - Primary Energy Inc.  City of Calgary- Federal Government of Canada  Province of Ontario- Federal Government of Canada  Scotland- Greenpeace Scotland  Iran – Greenpeace International  G8+5 – IEA  Turkey - REC WADE would like to see model work replicated, at a municipal level, in the world’s major cities.

6 6 World Population Growth and Energy Demand Sources: U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), International Energy Outlook 2006 Sources: United Nations Population Division

7 7 Wasted energy is a huge opportunity Sources: IEA/OECD, 2008 2/3 of the fuel we use to produce power is wasted CHP can more than double this efficiency Energy Flows in the Global Electricity System

8 8 What are We Waiting For?

9 9 Electricity production at the point of use, irrespective of size, fuel or technology – on-grid or off-grid: High efficiency cogeneration (CHP) On-site renewable energy Industrial energy recycling and On-site power Otherwise known as: CCHP (Combined Cooling Heat and Power), Distributed Generation, Captive Power, Embedded Generation, Microgeneration, CHP, Trigeneration, Recycling Energy, etc. What is Decentralized Energy (DE)?

10 10 Decentralized Technologies Computing: Internet vs. Mainframes Telecommunications: Cell phones vs. land lines Broadcasting: TelevisionEg. You Tube Radio Eg. Podcasts Electricity: Decentralized energy technologies

11 11 The Move to Decentralized Technology vs.

12 12 Decentralized Energy – Fossil-fuel Technologies Microturbines Reciprocating Engines Large & small Gas Turbines Stirling Engines Steam Turbines

13 13 Decentralized Energy – Renewable Technologies Rooftop PV Fuel Cells On-site wind Municipal Waste Biomass

14 14 WADE Outreach - IPCC  In the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 4 th Report on Climate Change Mitigation there is a section on “Decentralized Energy”.  WADE work is cited in the report  Benefits cited include:  Reduced need for costly transmission systems  Shorter lead times  Substantially reduced grid power losses  Deferred costs for upgrading transmission and distribution infrastructure  Improved reliability  Increased total energy recovery from 40–50% up to 70–85% with corresponding reductions in CO2 emissions of 50% or more Source: IPCC Fourth Assessment Report, Working Group III, Chapter 4 Energy Supply

15 15 WADE Outreach - DTI  In the recent UK Energy White Paper there is a chapter on DE which calls for:  providing more flexible market and licensing arrangements for distributed, low carbon electricity supply to be implemented by 2008  greater clarity on the terms offered by energy suppliers to reward micro generators for the excess electricity they produce and want to export back to the grid  provision of information and advice to those individuals, communities and developers considering distributed energy solutions, and  incentives for Distributed Network Operators to ensure more efficient and speedy connection to networks  WADE work is cited in the paper Source: Energy White Paper 2007

16 16 DE and Climate Change - Asia Pacific Partnership  Seen as key agreement for engaging those that have not yet ratified the Kyoto protocol as well as major developing countries who have not yet made targets under their Kyoto commitments  Partnership of 7 countries 1.Australia, 2.China, 3.India, 4.Japan, 5.Republic of Korea 6.United States 7.Canada

17 17 The International CHP/DHC Collaborative  Who: The IEA, working with DHC and CHP leaders worldwide  What: Raise the profile of CHP/DHC among policy makers, industry  When: Launched March 2007 with a 2-year Work Plan  Activities:  Roundtables and seminars  IEA publications with  Improved global DHC/CHP data and prospects, by country/sector  Benefits globally and on a region/country basis  Documentation of successful DHC/CHP policies  Outreach strategy targeted at  policy makers  key growth regions (Asia, Middle East, E Europe/Russia)

18 18 Gleneagles 2005: “The IEA will advise on alternative energy scenarios and strategies aimed at a clean, clever and competitive energy future.” Heiligendamm 2007: Paragraph 67: “We invite the IEA to create a Sustainable Buildings Network…[to] develop practical instruments for assessing and advising on the use of renewable energies, especially for cooling and heating…” Paragraph 70: “Making power generation more efficient, climate friendly and sustainable is …crucial…we aim to increase average power plant efficiencies in each of our countries...[we will] adopt instruments and measures to significantly increase the share of combined heat and power (CHP) in the generation of electricity.” G8 Communiqués

19 19 IEA CHP/DHC Country Scorecard: United States  Released in July 2008  Purpose: To aid in analyzing the U.S. CHP/DHC market, policies, and approaches  Includes:  U.S. Climate Change Context  History of CHP/DHC in U.S.  CHP/DHC Applications and Markets  Govt. CHP Promotion Policies  Key Barriers to CHP  CHP Potential  Policy Recommendations

20 20 Why is DE better? Benefits of DE compared to centralised generation  DE is more efficient  DE is cheaper  DE is cleaner  DE is more reliable  DE is more secure  DE provides access to electricity in remote areas  DE can be sited quicker and with less opposition

21 21 DE Benefits – WADE Economic Model – Selected Past Results Estimated Total Savings (%) by Increasing Proportion of DE in New Power Sector Investments (Source: WADE various) Note: Proportion of total investment that is DE varies from region to region and from scenario to scenario-( ie in some cases savings are resultant from all new capacity being DE compared to baseline and in other cases only 25% of new capacity is DE compared to baseline)

22 22 They ordered another 250 MW

23 23 Average Power Plant Efficiency (%) Over Time

24 24 1957 vs 2007

25 25 World All-Energy Investment, 2001 - 2030 Source: IEA World Energy Outlook, 2006 46% 54% Generation Capacity Wires Network investment needs exceed generation needs by 17% $6.1 trillion of investment

26 26 CHP share national power generation Sources:IEA, CHP: Evaluating Benefits of Greater Global Investment, 2008

27 27 Don’t Worry – Be Happy

28 28 Global DE Market Growth Source: WADE World Survey of Decentralized Energy,, 2007

29 29 Cogen Comes to Peru

30 30 What is Possible for a Country Source: Danish Energy Center

31 31 Disruptive Technologies are Ready Volvo: ReCharge Concept Plugin Hybrid Vehicle Whispertech: Whispergen Stirling Engine micro CHP unit

32 32 What is the cost of a paradigm shift? Manhattan Project (atom bomb): $23 billion Apollo Mission (man on the moon): $135 billion US War in Iraq (projected): $1 trillion+ US oil imports: $1 billion+ per day

33 33 Conclusions:  DE is a win-win form of power generation;  DE has great potential to reduce CO 2 emissions and reduce overall costs of supplying power;  DE can provide energy access for those in rural areas and developing countries;  Barriers tend to be policy barriers;  Organizations like WADE can help breakdown barriers through advocacy and education.
