1 Brian Kebbekus

2  City of Austin  Austin Energy  The University of Texas  Austin Technology Incubator  Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce  Environmental Defense Fund

3 Limited Federal Regulation and Local Support Why Austin?

4 Lack of Federal Regulation Speeds Project Grid Isolation

5  University of Texas  GreenChoice  Panhandle wind  Solar

6  Dell  IBM  Oracle  Cisco  Microsoft  Applied Materials  GE Energy  Intel  Sematech Silicon Wafers

7 More Than Just Usage Control Austin Energy’s Goals

8  A new 30MW solar plant  Data network  1M residential smart meters  43K business smart meters  86K smart thermostats (90MW)  2 net-zero consumption neighborhoods  Rebates and financing for distributed solar  Austin is still making money

9  Decrease carbon emissions by 17-20% by 2020  Increase renewable energy generation to 30-36% of total capacity  Increased efficiency  Easier usage monitoring for consumers  New business model

10 Pecan Street Project Workgroups City as Laboratory

11 A Comprehensive First Step Mueller: Proof of Concept

12  Distributed Clean Energy  Smart grid coupled with water systems  Smart Appliances  Plug-in electric vehicles as storage (V2G)  Green building codes  Experimental pricing models

13  Storage vs. load shaping  Private vs. effective  Identify non- sensitive appliances  Public education  Strong privacy policy

14

15  Not dependent on other technologies  Enormous energy savings  Excellent pilot program for other cities, if not other utilities  Austin is in a unique position

16  More smart appliances necessary  Expanded storage  User interface optimization  More distributed generation ◦ Incentives for add-on ◦ Zoning requirements for new homes  Water management

17 Vehicle to Grid Expanding Energy Storage

18  Smart grid allows for: ◦ Demand shaping ◦ Lower overall usage ◦ Increased reliance on renewable energy  Cleaner energy, not less energy is the End

19  The most important project for Austin Energy  The current business model promotes consumption  Consumers are bad at delayed gratification

20 Internet-Style PricingReal-Time Pricing  Flat rate  Customers allow Austin to turn off major appliances as necessary  Customers open up their land to distributed generation  Peak-time penalties  A fallback position  Multiple ways of notifying customers  New methods of generating revenue

21 Roger Duncan, Former General Manager Austin Energy “The demise of the ‘spinning meter’ business model is inevitable. Everyone knows it’s coming, and most people now think it’s coming pretty quickly. What has not emerged yet is its replacement. And until we know where the revenue streams will flow from and to, it doesn’t really matter what brilliant technical plan we come up with. The business model is the linchpin.”
