    officials
  • Extensive experience in alternative energy
  • Former Assistant Secretary of Commerce for
    Technology Policy
  • Former Chief of Staff for White House CEQ PNGV
    Executive Director
  • Developed successful funding strategies for
    various alternative energy
  • technologies, including fuel cells, hydrogen,
    vehicle technologies, power generation
  • Worked with all key agencies Energy, DOD, NSF,
    Commerce, Labor

3
Policy Environment
  • National Energy Policy Act of 2005
  • Orders DOE to develop a wind roadmap
  • DOE to establish 5 projects to demonstrate
    production of hydrogen at wind facilities
  • DOE to support relevant university research
  • Advanced Energy Initiative
  • Goal Reduce demand for natural gas and foster
    alternatives for power production
  • Focus areas clean coal, nuclear, renewable solar
    and wind energy
  • Wind energy research budget FY0744M FY0840M
  • Legislative Initiatives

4
Legislative Initiatives
  • Democrats New Direction for America
  • Goal Achieve Energy Independence by 2020
  • Commitment Investment in bio-fuels, geothermal,
    clean coal, fuel cells, solar, wind, hybrid and
    flex fuel vehicle technology and manufacturing
  • Create E-DARPA
  • Clean Energy Act of 2007 (H.R. 6)
  • Eliminates subsidies for oil gas industries
  • Establishes strategic energy efficiency/renewable
    reserve
  • Funds offset subsequent energy legislation
  • New energy legislative package by July 4
  • National Competitiveness Investment Act (NCIA)
    (bipartisan)
  • Authorizes doubling of NSF and DOE Office of
    Science budgets
  • Creates Council on Innovation and Competitiveness
    in White House
  • Creates Innovation Acceleration Program (8
    set-aside)
  • Creates E-ARPA

5
Types of Federal Funding for Wind Energy
  • Competitive, Merit-based Grant Programs
  • Publicly AdvertisedSolicitation, Broad Agency
    Announcement (BAA), Request for Proposals (RFP)
  • Fixed Deadlines
  • Well-defined Program Requirements
  • Peer Review
  • Cooperative Agreements and CRADAS
  • Unsolicited Proposals
  • Loan Guarantees
  • Contracts
  • Special Projects/Appropriations Line Items

6
Federal Wind Energy Priorities
  • Program Goals
  • By 2010, facilitate installation of at least 100
    MWH in 30 statesup from 8 states in 2002
  • By 2012, reduce cost of electricity from large
    land-based systems from base cost of .055 to
    .036 per KWH
  • By 2014, reduce cost of electricity from
    shallow-water offshore systems (up to 30 meters)
    from .095 to .07 per KWH
  • By 2015, expand by 5 the number of distributed
    wind turbines deployed in US (from 2007 baseline)
  • Focus Areas
  • Distributed and community-owned technology local
    power
  • RD for land-based systems balanced
    exploration of
  • offshore wind and other emerging markets

7
Federal Wind Energy Priorities
  • 20072008 Program Milestones
  • Complete sea-based concept study to examine
    system design tradeoffs across ranges of size,
    configuration and available technology
    innovations. SeaCon studies will help DOE
    narrow the technology options it supports
  • Work with industry partners to assess potential
    of the offshore wind industry
  • Determine technology development strategy for
    offshore wind
  • FY08 solicitation for component technology
    development

8
Key Elements of Clevelands Federal Strategy for
Wind Energy
  • Participate aggressively in competitive
    merit-based grant and loan guarantee programs
  • Seek Congressionally-directed appropriations
    during FY09 budget cyclebegins October 2007
  • Leverage Federal tax credits and incentives (and
    seek new ones)
  • Recruit Federal agency champions for Cleveland
  • Engage with industry associations
  • Advocacy for increased wind energy funding

9
Key Elements of Clevelands Federal Strategy for
Wind Energy
  • Competitive Funding/Loan Guarantee Opportunities
  • Potential for CRADA for shallow water offshore
    large LWST
  • Facilities construction/expansion 9B FY 08 DOE
    loan guarantees 1B for new technologies for
    electric transmission facilities or renewable
    power generation systems
  • FY 08 solicitation planned for LWST component
    technology development (turbines)
  • USDA renewable energy systems grants and loans
    for rural small business/agricultural
    producers/some electric utilities providing
    services to rural communities

10
Key Elements of Clevelands Federal Strategy for
Wind Energy
  • Directed appropriations
  • Develop pilot project not covered by competitive
    programs
  • Work with partners/appropriators
  • Focus on FY 09 budget cyclebegins October 2007
  • 12.8 million in FY 06 wind line items at DOE
  • Leverage tax credits and financial incentives
  • current credit for electricity generated by
    wind1.9 cents per kilowatt-hour first 10 years
    of operation

11
Key Elements of Clevelands Federal Strategy for
Wind Energy
  • Recruit Federal agency champions for Cleveland
  • Build relationships with key executive branch
    officials to drive RD agenda and create
    discretionary funding opportunities
  • Studies underway in FY 08 will define offshore
    program direction beginning in FY 09
  • Program funds shifting to distributed wind
    technology

12
Key Elements of Clevelands Federal Strategy for
Wind Energy
  • Engage with Industry Associations
  • New wind action plan due June 2007
  • Joint effort of American Wind Industry
    Association/Department of Energy (NREL)
  • Could play major role in shaping Federal wind
    energy investment

13
Key Elements of Federal Strategyfor Wind Energy
  • Advocacy for offshore wind funding
  • Goal positioning the Cleveland project with
    Federal agencies as representative of offshore
    winds potential for successful commercialization
  • Key Activities
  • Preparing appropriate educational materials
  • Briefing Members of Congress, staff, and
    executive branch officials
  • Technology demonstrations
  • Congressional testimony
  • Participate/speak at conferences and events
  • Positioning in speeches by public officials,
    reports, etc.
  • Opinion pieces and advertising
