1 t OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY AT TRIBAL GAMING FACILITIES

2 Agenda Facility Benchmarking Building Energy Codes Energy Audits Energy Efficiency Opportunities On-site Generation and Energy Storage Opportunities

3 Why Energy Efficiency?? Creates local economic development opportunities One of the most affordable and immediate ways to improve – energy self-sufficiency – control energy costs – improve local air quality and public health – limit a community’s carbon emissions and insulate its exposure to climate impacts

4 IDENTIFYING OPPORTUNITY

5 Facility Benchmarking Benchmarking the energy performance of your buildings is a key first step to understanding and reducing energy consumption Benchmarking drives action and works best when it’s done consistently over time Sometimes required for utility rebate and incentive programs or by state or local policies

6 Energy Codes International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) – AHSRAE 90.1 Adoption and incorporation into building design and construction by local jurisdictions – Title 24, part 6

7 Energy Codes Code benefits – Reduced energy consumption – Building owner cost savings – Reduced CO2 emissions Code challenges – Adoption, implementation, compliance, and enforcement challenges – Lack of training and manpower are roadblocks to proper enforcement

8 Energy Audits Identify and provide the savings and cost analyses of all practical energy efficiency measures May also provide a listing of potential capital- intensive improvements that require more thorough data collection and engineering analysis

9 ENERGY EFFICIENCY OPPORTUNITIES

10 Lighting Lower wattage fluorescent lamps Light emitting diodes (LEDs) – Reduces downtime and labor costs – Reduces cooling requirements (interior lighting) Delamping Skylights or daylighting

11 Lighting Venue Lighting Parking lot lighting Slot machines Overhead lighting Hotel room lighting

12 HVAC Systems Higher efficiency equipment – Coefficient of Performance (COP) – Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) – Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) Insulating pipes and ducts Variable Air Volume Systems

13 Motors and Pumps Premium efficiency Motors and Pumps – Fountains, domestic water pumps, pool/spa pumps, etc. Variable Speed Drives

14 Controls Commissioning (Cx) Retrocommissioning (RCx) and Monitoring Based Commissioning (MBCx) Energy Management Systems (EMS) Measurement and Verification (M&V)

15 Controls Lighting – Multi-level lighting controls – Automatic daylighting controls – Occupancy sensors – Bi-level lighting in secondary spaces – Demand response controls – Photosensors and automatic scheduling

16 Controls HVAC – Smart thermostats – Economizers – Demand Control Ventilation – Temperature resets (water and air side) – Static pressure reset – Variable speed motors and drives – Control sequence/scheduling optimization

17 Computers, Appliances and Other Plug Loads Vending machine controls Smart power strips Power management software Data Center Optimization

18 ON-SITE GENERATION AND STORAGE

19 On-Site Generation and Storage Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Solar Thermal – Central heating systems, Domestic hot water, laundry facilities Solar Photovoltaics (PV) Wind

20 On-Site Generation and Storage Thermal Energy Storage Electric Energy Storage

21 Leveraging Available Programs Local Utility Programs – Rebates, incentives, financing, technical assistance State or Federal Programs – DOE CHP Technical Assistance Partnership (TAP) – Self-Generation Incentive Program (CA only) Third Party Performance Contracts
