1 Smart Grid Projects and Renewable Energy Pilot Projects and Lessons Learned Sandra McCardell, MBA, LEED AP BD&C President 11 th Annual PQSynergy International Conference – Septmber Chiang Mai, Thailand

2 Presentation Outline Smart Grid Elements Push towards Renewables in Smart Grids Pilot Projects – General Comments Renewable Energy in Smart Grids 4 Pilot Projects – Summary – Lessons learned

3 The Smart Grid Source: The Grid of The Future, T-Systems Customer Magazine BEST PRACTICE,

4 Source: Elster; Accelerating Smart Grid Benefits with Hosted Solutions for Utilities, Aklia Ganapathy, webinar 7/2011

5 Why Smart Grid? Source: Kazuyuki Kakada, “Smart Grid Related Activities in NEDO, Smart Grid Advisory Meeting, 10/2009

6 Characteristics of Renewable Energy in Smart Grids Generation Types: – Traditional Generation – Wind – Solar (various technologies) – Hydro – Biomass – Geothermal – Electric vehicle Transmission and Distribution 2- way power flow Active and Fluctuating Operations 2-way (or more) communications High Variability and localized solutions

7 For Utilities – Opportunities with Renewables in Smart Grid Regional planning & coordination Build off existing infrastructure Increased reliability and security Help “Self healing” With “real time” decision making, provide local alternative generation Integrate different generators & generator types

8 For Utilities - Challenges with Renewables in Smart Grid Lack of customer understanding Utilities need to change thinking to react more quickly Variability & differential generation patterns Lack of standards and interoperability Financial models for cost recovery must change Security of grid No “one size fits all” solutions

9 Countries with renewable energy targets From 45 in 2005 to 85 in 2010 Source: The Race for New Energy, Wilson Rickerson, Global New Energy Summit 2011

10 Pilot Projects are Testing…

13 US Projects Source:

14 Pilot Projects Presented Powerstream in Ontario, Canada CenterPoint in Texas, USA Friedrichshafen (“T-City”), Germany Kuzumaki Prefacture, Japan

15 PowerStream – Ontario, Canada Renewables Picture: – Currently primarily hydro – Potential small RE projects Several integrated “pilot projects: – Communications interface with GIS – “Self Healing” Grid – Digital Fault Indicators – Smart Meters for Distribution Transformers – Vehicle Battery “smart charging” – Home Area Networks “Go Green with Powerstream” Source: “A Brave New World”, Edward Chatten, SVP Smart Grid & Strategic Support, Smart Grid Technology Conference, San Jose CA June 2011

16 Guiding Principles Customer Empowerment Improve Reliability Focus on Value – Shareholders, Customers Increase Safety Integrate with energy conservation & DSM programs Explore regional opportunities Leverage – equipment, information, programs, enterprise systems Recover all costs Support local green energy & economic development goals Maximize security of grid and customer information Source: “A Brave New World”, Edward Chatten, SVP Smart Grid & Strategic Support, Smart Grid Technology Conference, San Jose CA June 2011

17 Lessons Learned Price of failure to adapt very high Everything changing very quickly Difficulty of technology integration (including Renewables) Technology obsolescence is a problem (including Renewables) Customers very different, with varied expectations SmartGrid design and function will vary by utility and region Cost / Benefit ratio should be positive Siting challenges Barriers to scale Source: “A Brave New World”, Edward Chatten, SVP Smart Grid & Strategic Support, Smart Grid Technology Conference, San Jose CA June 2011

18 CenterPoint Energy, Houston,Texas USA (& 5 other states) Renewables Picture: Currently Coal & Natural Gas Transmission Constraints Important wind resources Good solar resources Pilot Elements: Advanced Metering Systems Intelligent Grid Vision: “CNP seeks to enable the Texas electricity market to extract the full functionality of the Smart Grid by supporting individual management of electricity consumption, fostering adoption of market-driven programs and achieving maximum operational readiness and efficiency.” Source: Robert Frazier, SmartGrid conference, 6/2011 – “SmartGrid Projects – Current Projects to Future Functionality”

25 Friedrichshafen, Germany T-Systems: – Provides IT and communication services, dynamic services, energy services, cloud-based services – largest German telecom company – Energy efforts started with small metering solution for German market, focus on privacy and security Renewables Picture: – Germany well-known for focus on variety of distributed renewable energy generation – PV, electric cars, wind, solar thermal, biomass all in place

26 Friedrichshafen Summary Cooperative effort “Laboratory” with focus on implementation Smart metering, smart grid, and general smart technology services Multi-utility, sub-metering, multiple standards in smart metering platform Small smart grid applications – Demand response, power plant requirements, economics research, market value research

27 Friedrichshafen Findings Communication is key with different types of buildings & users, and generators Architecture which brings together different meters is most useful Transformative technologies and methods Data privacy and data security critical Many common solutions would not meet security requirements of telecom industry In Germany, change from yearly billing required Rapid, complete roll-out most cost effective

28 Community scale smart grid in Japan Grid severely supply limited Acceleration of Smart Grid adoption may be good alternative for future Potential Smart Grid elements: – Accelerate adoption of technologies and grid – Smart meter options needed – Mechanism needed for market signals – price and command signals

29 Impacts from the Disaster After the earthquake and tsunami, surviving fossil fuel power plants not able to handle load left by Fukushima closure – Substation breakers were only tools available to keep grid in balance, so had system of rolling blackouts Current actions: – Recommissioning old plants – Importing gas turbines – Running all at full capacity

30 Kuzumaki Prefecture Local Smart Grid – Kuzumaki – 8,000 people, 50 miles from coast – Power out for 1 day (connected to grid) – Started program 10 years ago Wind farm Biogas generator Biodiesel refinery PV on school roofs Elder-care facilities heated by pellet mill Source:

31 Lessons from Kuzumaki Intermittent renewables work in system Price and control signals – Wind power at night increases – Cloud over sun during day Small regions of grid disconnect temporarily and keep operating Source: digital.org/solartoday/201106/#pg12http://www.solartoday- digital.org/solartoday/201106/#pg12 Source: pan /RES_japan.pdf pan /RES_japan.pdf
