Leading By Example towards a Clean Energy Economy and Sustainable Natural Environment Signed by Governor Markell on February 17, 2010.
Reduce energy consumption 30% by FY2015. Create a statewide energy audit plan and implementing energy savings projects through SEU-financed guaranteed energy performance contracts. Establish benchmark and tracking system to monitor energy usage and carbon emissions of all state-owned and leased buildings by 12/31/11. Obtain 30% of the state’s overall annual electric demand from clean, renewable sources by end of FY2013.
Incorporate LEED silver standards into new construction and renovation projects and the operation of state facilities. Achieve 75% waste diversion from landfills by end of FY2012. Reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions by 25% and vehicle miles traveled by 15% by end of FY2012. Develop and implement Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Policy by August 30, 2010.
EO18 Workgroup formed. Executive agencies represented by 13 Agency Sustainability Managers (SMs) plus additional OMB and DNREC personnel. Energy tracking system chosen and SMs trained in its use. Energy usage data for 81 facilities encompassing more than 4.8 million square feet have been entered into the system. Reverse energy auction held April, The auction achieved FY2013 renewable energy goals in FY 2011 (green power to be supplied at 25% above the state’s RPS). Vehicle tracking installed in all Fleet vehicles and a limited number of agency-owned vehicles reporting miles and emissions, and fuel consumption tracked from gas cards weekly.
Statewide Energy Performance Contracting in process. Waste diversion base year and rate calculated statewide – 6.4% waste diversion (construction & demo not included in %). Single stream recycling added to state trash removal contract – to be awarded end June Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Policy in draft form. EO 18 Implementation Guide drafted.
Living document comprised of individual step- by-step work plans for each area of the EO led by agency SMs. Includes State Facility Energy Audit Plan. Includes an Addendum for State Employee Education/Communication plan. Outlines reporting requirements for state agencies.
Produce a master list of all state owned and leased facilities – 7/1/10 completion. Create “Cross-Agency Facilities Management Group” – 7/1/10 completion. Develop operational policies and procedures to that achieve EO 18 goals including LEED - 9/1/10 completion. Develop standard procedures to quantify energy consumption savings from operational changes – 10/1/10 completion.
Identify and enter data for all facilities into Portfolio Manager – 12/1/10 completion. Collate/organize data from Portfolio Manager – 12/30/10 completion. Track energy improvement initiatives. Report on corrective actions for metering problems.
Produce a facilities list to be audited for energy performance contracts – completed. Collaborate with the SEU to initiate energy audits and GESAs – 6/25/10 completion. Manage energy audits for “first wave” performance contracts – 11/1/10 completion. Investigate funding sources for projects not incorporated into GESAs – 12/15/10 completion.
State-wide waste diversion base year established as FY2010 and current rate is 6.4% (not including C&D waste). Implement state-wide single stream recycling – 7/1/10 completion. Implement state-wide oil/fluids recycling – 9/30/10 completion. Implement composting opportunities for food/organic wastes – 9/30/10 completion. Education and outreach for state agencies and employees – on-going
Ensure all future vehicle purchases that meet the goals of EO 18 – in place. Reduce vehicle miles traveled by 15% by tracking all agencies miles – in process. Reduce petroleum consumption by 25 % by tracking weekly consumption and initiating education and alternative fuels availability. Reduce employee commuting miles and work related travel through technology and education.
Finalize state-wide EPP Policy – 8/30/10 completion. Implement EPP Policy within state contracts – on-going. Agencies awareness and implementation of EPP Policy – 10/30 completion. Track EPP Policy Implementation – on-going.
State employee education and outreach program on all areas of the EO 18 will be implemented. “Rethink, Reuse, Reduce & Recycle” Program. Program will need top-level support initiated by the Governor and Agency heads.
Each agency is required to report quarterly on their progress in achieving EO 18 goals and standards. Agency reports will be submitted to the EO 18 Workgroup and the workgroup will compile a statewide quarterly report. Reports will be submitted to the Cabinet Committee on Energy and the Governor’s Office. A universal reporting template is currently being developed for use by the agencies.
Cabinet Committee on Energy must approve EO18 Implementation Guide. Move forward with performance contracting and audit plan. Continue energy benchmarking for all state facilities. Start EO18 education for state employees. Support operational changes (e.g. temperature and lighting controls, recycling, reduced vehicle usage) required to achieve EO 18 goals.
