Effective Strategies for Climate Risk
MitigationTom KerrUS EPA
2
Overview
  • Background
  • Climate Leaders and corporate GHG management
  • ENERGY STAR and corporate energy management
  • Clean energy investment

3
EPAs Climate Partnerships
  • Widespread partnerships
  • 7,000 partners
  • across industry, service sector, public sector
  • cover all major emissions sources
  • Achieving real results
  • 66 MMTCE reductions in 2001 alone
  • gt500 MMTCE locked in through 2012
  • Spurring investment in cost-effective
    technologies
  • Delivering value-added tools services
  • Climate Leaders GHG Inventory Management Plan
  • ENERGY STAR corporate Energy Management Plan
  • Clean energy project assistance

4
Voluntary Climate Risk Mitigation Drivers for
Action
  • Cost savings
  • Influence policy development
  • Pressure from financial sector
  • Public recognition
  • Brand enhancement
  • Competitive advantage
  • Pressure from environmental groups
  • CEO believes it is the right thing to do

5
Corporate GHG Management
  • Develop a comprehensive climate change strategy
  • Perform corporate-wide GHG inventory
  • Set corporate-wide GHG emissions reduction goals
  • Identify low-cost mitigation options
  • Ensure credibility
  • Partner with states, federal government, NGOs
  • Develop an Inventory Management Plan that
    demonstrates a sound process is in place
  • Reevaluate progress periodically and publish
    results

6
Corporate Energy Management
  • What - Manage reductions in energy use across all
    facilities
  • Key Activities
  • Establishing organizational commitment
  • Measuring energy performance
  • Creating and implementing action plans projects
  • Monitoring responsibility for energy use
  • Evaluation and focus on continuous improvement
  • Ensuring energy efficiency procurement, design,
    and operations
  • Why Companies with strong programs can reduce
    energy use (and GHG emissions) by 10-30

7
California Corporate Leaders
  • CalSTERS GreenWave Program for Real Estate
  • Require all real estate holdings to be
    benchmarked and tracked using the EPAs (ENERGY
    STAR) National Performance Rating System for
    buildings
  • Holdings scoring a 75 must implement an energy
    reduction action plan that draws from ENERGY STAR
    guidance
  • California Portland Cement
  • Established corporate energy program based on the
    ENERGY STAR approach
  • Participating in ENERGY STAR Cement Industry
    Focus to create a plant Energy Performance
    Indicator (EPI) to benchmark cement plant energy
    efficiency
  • Saved an estimated 138,135,996 kBtu in 2004

8
Energy Management Policy Considerations
  • Whole Building Energy Performance
  • Measure efficiency using normalized metrics of
    total energy intensity
  • Incorporate whole building comparative energy
    benchmarking
  • Promote a whole building, sequenced approach for
    facility upgrades to avoid equipment oversizing
  • Tie benchmarking to rebate programs
  • Reward buildings with improved benchmark scores
  • Improved Operational Approaches
  • Support building operator training
  • Orient audit and other programs to address
    operational and management options often no
    cost/low cost
  • Integrate whole building energy performance into
    new construction

9
Clean Energy Investment
  • Combined Heat and Power
  • Dramatically more efficient/less polluting
  • Enhanced reliability/control over energy use
  • Reduced gas use
  • Explore waste/opportunity fuels
  • Green Power Purchasing
  • Electricity use often largest source of emissions
  • Green power available nationally
  • New products offer gas price hedge
  • Need to negotiate with providers for best deal

10
Getting Started With GHG Management
  • EPAs Climate Leaders Offers
  • Credibility through EPA review of inventory
  • Technical inventorying assistance, including
    assistance with an Inventory Management Plan
  • Coordination with other climate efforts
  • State (CA CCAR), international, federal
  • Peer exchange
  • Partners demonstrate leadership by developing
    comprehensive climate change strategies
  • Currently 67 partners 28 have set GHG targets

11
Getting Started With Energy Management
  • ENERGY STAR Can Help With
  • Establishing an Organizational Commitment
  • Measuring Energy Performance
  • benchmarking facilities with Portfolio Manager
  • Demonstrating Financial Value
  • earning/share, asset value, NOI
  • Recognition for Leadership
  • ENERGY STAR label
  • calculation of environmental benefits of energy
    savings

12
Getting Started With Clean Energy Investment
  • EPAs CHP Partnership offers
  • Feasibility assessments
  • Referrals to developers/equipment suppliers
  • Technology and market analyses
  • Recognition for leadership
  • Calculation of environmental benefits
  • EPAs Green Power Partnership offers
  • Easy-to-use Procurement Guide
  • Referrals to providers
  • Calculation of environmental benefits
  • Recognition for leadership
