GARY THOMPSON, P.ENG, C.ENG, MBA, MIET,
MSC RYERSON UNIVERSITY, CENTER FOR URBAN ENERGY
  • Approaches to Teaching Energy Efficiency
    TEACHING ENERGY EFFICIENCY AT THE POST
    SECONDARY LEVEL
  • YORK UNIVERSITY, JULY 16/17, 2014
  • CKEI 110 ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND DEMAND RESPONSE

3
COURSE DESCRIPTION
  • Designed to allow students to explore the
    technical and policy dimensions of
  • energy conservation,
  • energy efficiency
  • demand response
  • with particular focus on potential contributions
    to sustainability of urban energy systems in a
    Canadian and, more particularly, an Ontario
    context.

4
COURSE FOCUS AND SCOPE
  • Energy efficiency, commonly understood to be an
    essential element of a comprehensive integrated
    energy plan,
  • Not well understood or clearly articulated.
  • It is not as readily apparent as other system
    elements such as
  • extraction of a resource,
  • transmitting/transporting,
  • converting it to electricity
  • and then final conversion to useful work.
  • Not totally invisible, certainly much harder to
  • conceptualize,
  • see in action
  • Leading to under appreciating its full potential.

5
COURSE FOCUS AND SCOPE
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Hard to quantify
  • Hard to measure
  • The related areas of energy conservation
  • involving behavioural changes that result in
    reduced energy usage
  • demand response
  • (altering electricity demand to respond to the
    systems power availability/price signals) are
    even less understood energy conservation and
    demand response..

6
COURSE OBJECTIVE/LEARNING OUTCOMES
  • The specific objectives of the course will be to
    provide students with an understanding of the
    following
  • basic concepts of energy, energy use and
    implications of energy conversions
  • major types of energy efficiency and demand
    response actions
  • benefits, challenges and barriers to energy
    efficiency and demand response
  • economics of energy efficiency and demand
    response and their role in an integrated energy
    system
  • importance and approaches to evaluating energy
    efficiency and demand response programs and
    strategies
  • energy efficiency and demand response in practice
    in leading Canadian and US jurisdictions

7
Local Supporting Legislation Policies
  • Green Energy and Economy Act , 2009
  • The Government of Ontario is committed
  • to fostering the growth of renewable energy
    projects, which use cleaner sources of energy,
  • and to removing barriers to and promoting
    opportunities for renewable energy projects
  • and to promoting a green economy.
  • to ensuring that the Government of Ontario and
    the broader public sector, including
    government-funded institutions, conserve energy
    and use energy efficiently in conducting their
    affairs.
  • to promoting and expanding energy conservation by
    all Ontarians and to encouraging all Ontarians to
    use energy efficiently.

8
Local Supporting Legislation Policies
  • Long Term Energy Plan, 2013
  • Ontarios Long-Term Energy Plan, Achieving
    Balance, encourages conservation and lays out a
    plan for clean, reliable and affordable energy
    for Ontarians, where and when they need it.
  • The 2013 Long-Term Energy Plan (LTEP) balances
    five principles that will guide future decisions
  • cost-effectiveness,
  • reliability,
  • clean energy,
  • community engagement,
  • an emphasis on conservation and demand
    management before building new generation.

9
Local Supporting Legislation Policies
  • The Power To Live Green, Torontos
  • Sustainable Energy Strategy October 2009
  • The goal of the Power to Live Green is to develop
    an energy strategy that builds on the Citys
    sustainable energy foundation by significantly
    conserving, renewing, and smartly distributing
    electricity and natural gas to bring us closer to
    an 80 percent reduction in greenhouse gas
    emissions from 1990 levels by 2050, while
    maintaining energy reliability and affordability.

10
Legislative and Policy Integration
  • Every opportunity is sought throughout the
    course to challenge students to consider the
    national , provincial and local energy
    conservation polices.
  • These are considered against those of other
    jurisdictions outside of Canada.
  • Specific attention is paid to the implications
    of the LTEP
  • Long Term Energy Plan
  • Strong Conservation Theme.
  • New energy demand will be accommodated due to an
    aggressive Conservation Program.
  • LTEP carries with it an opportunity to compare
    and contrast our new practices with those of
    others
  • LTEP integrated at all sections of the course.

11
Consistent Themes
  • Consumer behaviour
  • How does it affect conservation?
  • How can we influence behaviour?
  • Evolving versions of the consistent acceptance
    that we need to conserve?

Class Room Dynamics
  • Small Groups
  • Numbering 15 20 Students
  • Wide age distribution,
  • early 20s mid 50s
  • Wide qualifications of students,
  • High School University Degree
  • Different ethnic backgrounds,
  • Mirror Canadian Societal Mix

15
Exercises and Evaluation
  • The course is consisting of a number of exercises
    and group engagements
  • Weekly News Challenge
  • Journal
  • Class Presentation
  • Energy Efficiency evaluation of an Architectural
    Structure (Office Building)
  • Mid Term Exam
  • Term Paper
  • Ongoing in Class Debate
