4 NY is in the Energy Efficiency (EE) Business What you need to know to be in the EE business: Include National Grid on your energy team(s) Include EE on all meeting Agendas Ask how does this new initiative, process or idea impact EE Before a failure occurs know what EE equipment or replacement equipment is available. “I will take the same but larger!!!” Know if the equipment is eligible for a utility incentive Don’t accept a vendor quote without EE in mind Don’t allow a design consultant to not include EE in their study Have EE projects on the shelf should budget $ become available
5 A project is determined to be Custom Step 1 Energy Assessment Basic Information Energy Assessment Form Commercial and Industrial Form Multi-Family Form Energy Assessment – Outline Benchmarking of Therm/sq ft Opportunity for Prescriptive Measures Rebate $, Approximate % savings, etc. Possible Pathways for Other Program
6 Where do projects come from? Projects come from energy efficiency partners. These include but are not limited to: Electrician Contractors Mechanical Contractors Consulting Engineers Lighting Specialty Companies Existing Studies with EE measures, etc
7 Review of “How” A custom project, vendor collects data, submits to AE or CEC, TSC analyzes findings, pass screening, leads to incentive and MRD. Customer signs when project is completed, and then customer or others get paid. Analyses are completed up front and National Grid commits to the incentive by holding the incentive dollars for the customer. National Grid stands by our incentive amount and it doesn’t change unless there is a change in project scope.
8 Technical Analysis and Review Energy Assessment (basic info on a facility) Vendor Analysis – information comes from your vendor Scoping Study TA Study Review of existing TA Study
9 Project Incentives Dollars for projects based on kwh’s and therms saved. Incentive Caps: Up to 50% of the project Buy down to not less than 1-year simple payback $2.25/therm based on annual therm savings $0.131/kwh for Lighting $0.197/kwh for Commercial and Small Industrial $0.292/kwh for Large Industrial
10 Successful Types of Projects Demand Control Ventilation Steam Piping Insulation High Efficiency Boiler Replacements Large Boiler Combustion efficiency Controls
