Title: State Clean Energy Policy Analysis SCEPA: Impacts and Opportunities


1
State Clean Energy Policy Analysis (SCEPA)
Impacts and Opportunities
  • November 29, 2007
  • Project Description and Progress Webcast

2
Meeting Agenda
  • Project Objectives
  • Logistics
  • Project Design and Analytic Framework
  • Current Policy and Draft Results
  • Questions/Comments/Avenues for more information

3
Objectives for SCEPA Project
1) Identify and quantify impacts of current
state EE/RE policies to inform policy decisions
and development 2) Promote understanding of
current policy impacts to foster broader use of
high impact policies 3) Engage leading state
officials and EE/RE market experts to identify
and characterize next generation of innovative
policies
4
Logistics
  • DOE/WIP Funded
  • NREL Implemented with policy experts from NREL
    and Interenergy Solutions, Inc (Matthew Brown)
  • Technical Committee - states and other interested
    parties offering feedback and direction

5
Project Approach
  • Develop detailed work plan, project team, and
    technical committee (Sept 07)
  • Conduct analysis to quantify and characterize
    policy impacts by type and drivers (Sept 07-08)
  • Dissemination of project info and OUTCOMES! (Sept
    07-08)
  • Website
  • Conduct sessions at regional workshops and
    national conferences
  • Direct Technical Assistance on specific policies
    in coordination with TAP
  • Further develop next-generation innovations and
    complete policy analysis and documentation
    (Spring/Summer 08)
  • Provide technical assistance (including
    peer-exchange) to support policy best practice
    and innovation application (Late 08)

6
Project Design and Analytic Framework
7
Primary Questions
  • What do state policy makers and program
    implementers need?
  • How can we approach policies systematically and
    comparably?

8
What do State Actors Need?
  • Measures of success that make sense to states
    (policy drivers)
  • Economic development
  • Environmental impact
  • Energy security
  • Level playing field for policy options
  • Efficient delivery and communication of
    information

9
How to Approach Policies Systematically and
Comparably?
  • Basic decision making framework
  • 2 part process

10
Step One How Policies Address the Driver
11
Comparable Metrics
  • Economic
  • change in GSP
  • change in employment
  • change in renewable/efficiency industry value
  • Energy Security
  • increase in fuel diversity
  • Imports offset
  • Environmental - GHG, criteria pollutant
    reduction

12
Step 2 In-Policy Variables
  • Concept
  • Capture the impacts of innovative in-policy
    choices
  • Capture non-quantitative measurable elements
  • General Policy Metrics (it depends!)
  • Applicability to other states (includes
    prerequisite policies)
  • Unintended consequences
  • Examples
  • Economic Development Zones in an RPS (Texas)
  • Sunset dates on tax credits
  • Compliance mechanisms

13
Known Challenges to Approach
  • Different state resources (financial and EE and
    RE), levels of interest
  • Lack of data on existing policies
  • Policy impact attribution (suites)

Unknown Challenges to Approach
  • We know they are out there…and to find them, we
    started the project

14
Current Policies (completed in January 08)
  • EERS (Matthew Brown)
  • RPS (David Hurlbut)
  • RFS (Gail Mosey)

Next up (completed in Early 08)
  • Decoupling/lost revenues/utility incentive
  • EE and RE Tax Incentives
  • White certificates
  • RE products grants and rebates
  • Feed-in tariffs

15
Expected Results for Policy Comparison
16
Technical Committee
  • As policies are evaluated, technical committee
    webcasts for interested parties to comment on
    metric development and usefulness to states
  • One-on-one calls with analysts for input
  • Document/report review
  • Overall project input
