Title: A Clean Demand Response Pilot Program For Southwestern Connecticut


1
A Clean Demand Response Pilot Program For
Southwestern Connecticut
  • Leah Weiss
  • Ozone Transport Commission
  • National Energy, Environment and Transportation
    Summit
  • May 16, 2002

2
Southwestern Connecticut
  • 51 towns in Fairfield and New Haven counties
    behind a transmission-line bottleneck
  • In this load pocket, 2,800 - 3,500 MW demand,
    2,000 MW capacity

ISO New England, 2002

Public Health and Environmental Issues
  • The problem
  • Air emissions from least-dispatched units
    diesel backups…
  • nitrogen oxides
  • volatile organics
  • diesel exhaust
  • carbon monoxide
  • carbon dioxide
  • mercury
  • other air toxics
  • The result
  • Health, economic, environmental, and social
    impacts…
  • Respiratory distress and disease (even in healthy
    populations)
  • Premature mortality
  • Pest/pathogen-caused disease
  • Damage to ecosystem and national monuments
  • Eutrophication of water bodies
  • Adverse agricultural impacts
  • Climate change visibility

A Collaborative Pilot Project
  • Goals
  • To improve power system reliability and air
    quality, and relieve grid congestion
  • To develop and implement demand response programs
    that encourage energy efficiency and reliability
    and are consistent with air quality and public
    health goals
  • Participants
  • CT DEP, CT DPUC, CT OPM support from OTC, GETF,
    NASEO, NARUC

5
Objectives
  • Develop new energy efficiency and clean
    distributed generation programs and incentives
    targeted towards peak power usage
  • Tie incentives to energy efficiency and clean
    distributed generation, including renewable
    energy and combined heat and power
  • Develop policies and regulations to restrict the
    use of uncontrolled diesel and other
    high-emitting on-site generators as an
    alternative to grid-based power

6
Initial Project Timeline
  • 1/02 Steering committee established
  • 2/02 Concept paper outlining clean demand
    response developed workplan developed
  • 4/02 Meeting with state agencies, utilities,
    ISO-NE, environmental community, and business
    sector in SWCT projects identified
  • 5/02 Projects developed
  • 6/02 Project implementation begins

7
Two-Phased Approach
  • Phase I develop near-term energy efficient,
    renewable energy, low- and no-emitting
    distributed generation, and other environmentally
    friendly mechanisms to implement in summer 2002
    evaluate efforts
  • Phase II examine options to implement in summer
    2003 and beyond

8
Implementing the Pilot Phase 1 (2002) Projects
  • Lead by example Demand and load response for
    Connecticut State office buildings
  • Target the CLM Fund and the Clean Energy Fund to
    reduce peak power demand
  • Improve upon current education, outreach, and
    marketing activities
  • Develop a clean energy siting map/tool

9
Additional Phase I Projects
  • Water efficiency and energy efficiency linkages
  • Summer Savers award for peak load and demand
    response (with no diesel BUG use)
  • Demand side reductions air conditioner rebates,
    bounties, and pay-as-you-save programs

10
Possible Phase 2 (2003) Projects
  • Fuel cell siting
  • Corporate strategies for
  • banks and insurers
  • big box retail (e.g., Wal-Mart, Home Depot)
  • small and medium sized businesses
  • SIP credit for energy efficiency
  • Heat island mitigation opportunities
  • Smart metering and direct controls

11
Challenges and Opportunities
  • Working on tight timeframe
  • Working through and within the State system
  • Coordination and support
  • Funding
  • Pilot as catalyst for integration
  • Pilot as catalyst for actions by others
