1 Northwest Energy Education Institute at Lane Community College The Energy Management Program Began in 1980: $300 National Science Foundation Grant Training Residential Analysts and Solar Water Heating Installers. Closed in 1988 due to a decrease in employment opportunities Program staffed most of the residential auditor positions in Northwest public and private utilities. Program History

2 Northwest Energy Education Institute at Lane Community College Program History (cont.) Spring 1992 Lane Community College was invited by BPA to restart the Energy Management Program with a focus on Commercial Energy Analysis BPA provided start up funding at $200k / year for three years. Program hired two full-time faculty: - Coordinator with teaching responsibilities - Full-time Classroom instruction

3 Northwest Energy Education Institute at Lane Community College Program History (cont.) In 1995 the BPA grant was partially over. Program found partial, limited duration funding from a mix of partners. To conserve resources, one faculty was laid off. Program began using adjunct faculty. In 1997 the Utility support ended as did the funding from Lane CC (LCC began a 10 year negative budget slide in 1997 due to Measure 5). The program was once again closed.

4 Northwest Energy Education Institute at Lane Community College Program History (cont.) EMP Coordinator requested and received from the college permission to pursue outside funding with which to continue the program. Almost concurrently, the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance was forming with the intent to transform the energy efficiency market. EMP Coordinator applied for and received a NEEA contract ($200k / year for three years, 1997-2000) to create the Northwest Energy Education Institute. In 1998 EWEB redirected a recurring LCC grant of $120k / year to partially fund the Energy Program. Additional resources were necessary for the program to survive.

12 Northwest Energy Education Institute at Lane Community College “I have focused on the O&M aspect of things since boot camp. We have achieved great savings and great success. These savings were not produced by capital investment. It has been purely the efforts of people directed to do the right thing. These are some of the most significant measures responsible for the savings. SOU has decreased its natural gas consumption by 14% to date. I expect that number to grow a bit more by the end of the fiscal year. Electrical consumption has decreased by 7%. Again I expect this to also increase by the end of June. The current cost avoidance comparing to last years operations is $331,258.19. The amount we are projecting to be under our utilities budget for this year and saving is $260,000.00. I am proposing to reinvest $60,000.00 of our savings into three separate ECM projects before the end of the year. I am waiting to see how that flies. Hopefully I will have some good news to report on that at this years boot camp presentation. Jared Fuhriman, Southern Oregon University EMC 2006 Energy Management Certification Testimonials

13 Northwest Energy Education Institute at Lane Community College Gary Briley.Energy Manager, Spring Branch School District Houston, Texas EMC Student 2003 - Cost Avoidance: $898,000 I have used a lot of what I learned in your course on a daily basis. You and your subject matter experts gave me the base knowledge and insight to take and steer a quality EM program in the right direction. I even feel that I am somewhat an expert in what we are trying to pull together for our EM department and maintenance. When my confidence level is high, I feel that I can accomplish anything!! You and Mike helped create this monster!! All the people in the district have been great in their response to the Energy Management program. It’s all about approach, timing, and appropriate communication. Energy Management Certification Testimonials

22 Northwest Energy Education Institute at Lane Community College NSF Grant Preliminary Proposal Reviewer Comments “The PI is highly qualified to conduct this project and has been a leader in the field for many years. Developing a model to disseminate Lane Community College's Energy Management technician training nationwide would address a compelling and timely need for technician education.” “I agree with the two external reviewers and encourage the submission of a formal proposal.” “Lane CC has a very strong history in energy management, and their capability in this area is clearly demonstrated. A strong feature of this proposal would be the potential to share this expertise with a wider audience, benefiting students on a national level.”

23 Northwest Energy Education Institute at Lane Community College Need for Water Conservation Training & Certification The need for water conservation: GAO states by 2013 at least 36 states will experience water shortage. “Understanding ways to reduce, reuse or supplement water sources is essential … most organizations do not have employees with adequate training” (Jeff Sandberg, Water Conservation Program Coordinator, Portland Water Bureau, 10/2/07). Combined water stressors include…. The need for water conservation training & certification: Comprehensive & standardized training is not yet available On-the-job training expensive & time consuming Industry experts will be faculty ensuring quality curriculum Professional certification by PNWS-AWWA ensures skills up to par Future Programs

24 Northwest Energy Education Institute at Lane Community College Water Conservation Technology Degree Program This program will: Provide businesses w/ students interns & employees Prepare businesses & utilities for baby boomers’ retirement Increase water efficiencies in workplace (e.g. closed-loop cycles) Decrease water, energy, sewer & stormwater costs Decrease tax payer burden for increased infrastructure expenditures to meet added demand Decrease on-the-job training expenses Strengthen Oregon’s local economy while increasing local & regional water security Decrease negative impacts on water bodies & increase water available for watersheds & fish Increase business sustainability & triple-bottom line solutions Lessens demand on current sources
