7 Land Based Wind NOW: Projects “construction ready” & under development in NC FUTURE: Even more development is viable with taller towers & longer blades Newly viable areas if tower height increases from 96m to 110m Source: U.S. Department of Energy

8 0 300 Southeast has 45% of resource Water Depths Gigawatts ALL Distance Offshore ALL (up to 50 mi) <30 m <12 miles 55 Southeast has 82% of resource Source: National Renewable Energy Laboratory, June 2010 Potential RESOURCE Offshore Wind Brian O’Hara: Southeastern Coastal Wind Federation

9 Estimated COST Potential RESOURCE Offshore Wind Cost vs. EIA Benchmark 15% lower 15% higher Source: U.S. Energy information Administration, Apr 2013 Lowest Cost states on the East Coast and in the U.S. (incl. #2 TX)

10 Clean Tech Summit: Electric and Automated Transportation Jeffrey Barghout Vice President, Transportation Initiatives February 26,

11 NC Plug-in Electric Vehicle Highlights NC PEV Taskforce 200+ participating organizations 150+ municipalities represented 450+ individual participants Public Infrastructure Deployment Workplace Charging Education and Outreach Economic Development National Recognition Local and State Readiness Plans Jeffrey Barghout: Advanced Energy

12 Impact: Jobs and Industry 65 companies identified in NC Jeffrey Barghout: Advanced Energy

13 What are Automated Vehicles? Integrated technologies and systems that make driving and controlling vehicles easier, safer and more efficient Many Automated features are already in your car today! Anti-lock braking Traction control Stability control Cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) Lane departure warning & correction Front/rear collision alert, braking & correction Side & rear blind-zone alert & correction Front & rear park assist Auto collision Preparation (Seatbelt, Airbag and collision imminent braking & steering) To name a few … Jeffrey Barghout: Advanced Energy

14 Automated Vehicles Opportunities Economic Development and Visibility Leverage / grow local industry, maintain NC’s leadership reputation with cutting edge technology, quality of life Improved Efficiency / Reduced Costs Increased road capacity, reduce congestion/traffic, lower operation costs, improved fuel economy, better air quality Improved Safety Communications and sensors to reduce/eliminate accidents – saving lives and money Increased Accessibility Improved convenience and flexibility for millenniums, aging population and disabled users Jeffrey Barghout: Advanced Energy

15 About Advanced Energy  A nationally recognized independent, non-profit established in 1980  Mission to create economic, environmental and societal benefits through innovative and market-based solution to energy issues  Provide training, consulting and testing in the following focus areas:  Buildings  Industrial  Motors and Drives  Renewables  Transportation Jeffrey Barghout: Advanced Energy
