4 1. Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) 2. Energy Management Program (EMP)

5  Funded Federally by US Department of Energy (DOE)  Serving Manufacturers  Energy bills typically from $100k to $3 million  Will serve larger as well  Service Territory  North Carolina  Southern Virginia  Northern South Carolina

6  Funded in part by State Appropriation  Additional support from NC Division of Air Quality  Reports to NC Energy Office  Businesses Served  Manufacturers  Commercial  Governmental  Institutional  No size restrictions  More Flexibility to Serve  Service Territory  North Carolina

7  Save Energy  Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions  Reduce Waste  Improve Productivity  Train Next Generation of “Energy Engineers”

8  Boilers  Lighting  HVAC & Controls  Motors & Pumps  Compressed Air  Preventative Maintenance  Chillers and Cooling Towers  Steam Systems & Steam Traps  Demand-side Management Systems  Other Sustainable Energy Systems

9 Preliminary Information Request & ConsultationOnsite Energy AssessmentData Analysis & ReportingImplementation & Follow-upAdditional Assistance & Consultation

10  Preliminary Information & Consultation  Discuss Assessment Process with NCSU Engineer  Complete & Submit Preliminary Information Form  Submit Energy Bills ▪Analysis of Energy Bills  Onsite Energy Assessment  Plant Tour & Operations Discussion  Identification of ECM Opportunities  Measurement & Data Gathering  Wrap-up Meeting with Plant Management

11  Data Analysis at NC State & Reporting  Data analyzed and interpreted ▪Recommendations developed ▪Energy Savings estimated  Cost to benefit analysis ▪ROI, simple payback, life cycle costing, etc.  Report developed & delivered  Implementation & Follow-up  Follow-up calls and assistance  Continued assistance as needed

12  Saving Energy  Onsite Energy Assessments  Demand Side Management (DSM)  Energy Bill Analysis  Reducing Waste and Pollution  Greenhouse Gas reductions from implementing Energy Conservation Measures (ECM)

13  Additional Technical Assistance  Strategic Energy Planning  Energy Management Consulting  Measurement & Verification  Improving Productivity  Broad Process and systems review  Additional NCSU resources ▪Industrial Extension Service

14 Projects 40% Implementation Rate Savings $5+ million energy savings annually Success 25 years of demonstrated success

15  2005 IAC Assessment  $250,000 annual savings  $560,000 implementation cost, 2.3 year payback  Recession activity  Company grew market share due to greater efficiency  Company expanded into new world markets as others retracted  Some recommendations applied corporately  Additional $920,000 worldwide savings  Local plant expanded  New product line added  New line and 50 new jobs without incentive

16 Campus Greenhouses  Detailed lighting survey  $112k implementation cost  $38k leveraged incentives  $17k annual energy savings  4.4 year simple payback ▪Maintenance savings further shorten payback  Boiler tuning ▪Boiler was short cycling Helping NC Bottom Line  Currently working with:  Industrial Plants  School districts  Community Colleges  Military facilities  Cities  Counties  Towns

17  Additional Revenue  Sales tax from project implementations  Retained or increased payroll ▪Better bottom line, fewer job cuts  Increased business: ▪asset base ▪investment ▪income  Business goodwill

18 Another Tool for your Toolbox  New industry and business recruitment  Unbiased resource at any stage of development  Additional benefit if locating in NC  Existing business expansion or retention  Inter-plant and corporate competition for project revenue  Report assists company with cost/benefit analysis

19 Technical Energy Workshops  Workforce Training  Refresh or retrain opportunities  Green skills are very desirable  PDH Resource to maintain certifications  Future Workforce Training  Enter workforce with practical skills  Fills NC need for technical engineering

20  Process Energy Analysis  HVAC Systems  Chillers & Cooling Towers  DDC Procurement & Commissioning  Distributed Generation  Energy Management & Safety for Laboratories  Power Quality Solutions  Cost-Effective Lighting  Motors & VSDs  Energy Management Systems  Compressed Air Systems  Pumping Systems  Improving Boiler Efficiency Sample of Technical Energy Workshop Topics

21 We’re here to help. We’re unbiased (not selling anything).  Energy brings us to the plant.  We help businesses keep a competitive edge.  We work hard to save companies money. At the end of the day, we’re here about Jobs!
