Energy Efficiency Legislation Advances in W. Va. (Reg & Leg)
West Virginia
Date: 2021-04-09
In Charleston, the West Virginia Senate Finance Committee reports it has advanced House Bill 2667 aimed at reduce energy usage in all state buildings to 25 pct below 2018 levels by 2030. The bill also requires annual reports on building energy performance compared to similar buildings in similar climates be submitted to the West Virginia Office of Energy.

If passed into law, the West Virginia Office of Energy would audit at least 20 pct of energy-metering devices at state buildings each year so all devices are audited by the end of 2026. The Energy Office would also establish a program for measuring and benchmarking the energy efficiency of all state buildings and submit energy usage data to a U.S. EPA operated benchmarking tool, to which the state is already registered. Sixty out of roughly 3.600 state owned buildings statewide are presently bench hmarked.

West Virginian spends an estimated $88 million to $100 million per year on utility costs. Benchmarking, utility auditing and other low-cost and no-cost measures are projected to cut those cost by 15 to 28 pct.

Amazon Likely Emitting More GHGs Than It Absorbs (Study Attached)
Frontiers in Forests and Global Change
Date: 2021-03-19
Scientists have predicted for years that at some point the Amazon rainforest, known as "the lungs of the planet," would be overcome in its ability to scrub carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and could even emit more greenhouse gases than it absorbs -- a scenario the journal Frontiers in Forests and Global Change says has "probably already happened."

The study looked at factors at play in the Amazon -- fires, deforestation, weather and the expansion of ranching -- and concluded that greenhouse gases including methane and nitrous oxide being emitted in the Amazon basin offset and most likely exceed the region's ability to soak up carbon dioxide.

Bipartisan CCS, Emissions Reduction Act Tabled (Reg. & Leg.)
CCS
Date: 2021-03-19
In Washington on Mar. 16, a bipartisan group of legislators -- Sens. Chris Coons, (D-Del.), Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Reps. Marc Veasey (D-Tx) and David McKinley (R-WV) -- introduced the Storing CO2 And Lowering Emissions Act (SCALE Act) to help develop carbon capture and storage (CCS) infrastructure as a critical means of reducing CO2 emissions and creating regional economic opportunities and employment.

The SCALE Act would support the build-out of infrastructure to transport CO2 from capture sites to locations where it can be either utilized in manufacturing or sequestered. The bill would also build upon the U.S. DOE's existing CarbonSAFE program to provide cost sharing for deployment of commercial-scale saline geologic CO2 storage projects.

The program would give priority to larger, commercial saline geologic storage projects that could serve as hubs for storing CO2 from multiple carbon capture facilities. It would also authorize increased funding to the U.S. EPA for permitting Class VI CO2 storage wells in saline geologic formations and provide grants for states to establish Class VI permitting programs , as well as provide grant funding for CO2 utilization products and support for state and local programs that create demand for materials, fuels and other products made from captured carbon. I would also help develop standards and certifications for products that use CO2.

shows The SCALE Act provisions could create approximately 13,000 direct and indirect jobs per year through the five-year authorization, according to Decarb America Project. (Source: Office of Sen.

BP Planning Teeside Blue Hydrogen Production Plant (Int'l.)
BP
Date: 2021-03-19
In the UK, oil giant BP is reporting plans to develop U2Teesaide, the country's largest blue hydrogen production facility, targeting 1GW of hydrogen production by 2030. The proposed development would capture and send for storage up to 2 million tpy of carbon -- equivalent to capturing the emissions from the heating of one million UK households.

Industries in Teesside account for over 5 pct of the UK's industrial emissions and the region is home to five of the country's top 25 emitters, according to BP.

With large-scale, low-cost production of clean hydrogen, H2Teesside could support the conversion of surrounding industries to use hydrogen in place of natural gas, playing an important role in decarbonizing a cluster of industries in Teesside, BP said. (Source: BP, PR, Website, OE, 18 Mar., 2021)

GWEC Comments on China's Wind Power Growth (Int'l. Report)
Global Wind Energy Council
Date: 2021-03-19
According to the Belgium-based Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC), in 2020 China broke the world record for most wind power capacity installed in a single year with 52 GW of new capacity -- doubling the country's annual installations compared to the previous year.

"The incredible and rapid growth of wind power in the region has been led by China, which now has more wind power capacity than Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America combined. We were expecting an installation rush in China last year due to the phase out of the onshore wind Feed-in-Tariff by the end of 2020, but the Chinese wind market exceeded our original forecasts by over 73 percent," the GWEC noted. "Top-down policies requiring wind and solar be integrated into the power grid, rather than subsidy support, would probably drive the greater transition to renewables", the GWEC added.

According to China's National Bureau of Statistics , the share of clean energy consumption in China has risen from 19.1 pct in 2016 to 24.3 pct in 2020. (Source: GWEC, PR, Xinhua, Mar., 2021) Contact: Global Wind Energy Council, www,gwec.net

UK Investing £150Mn for Rainforest Preservation (Int'l.)
UK Rainforest
Date: 2021-03-17
In London, the UK has launched its new Mobilising Finance for Forests Programme, a £150 million fund to help protect rainforests equivalent to an area the size of Wales, cut millions of tonnes of carbon emissions and improve the lives of over 600,000 people in tropical forest communities across Africa, Asia and Latin America. The programme will support sustainable land-use projects and protect rainforest regions like the Amazon and Indonesian basins in communities vulnerable to climate change.

This funding will help to remove 28 million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere, equivalent to the offsetting London's entire CO2 emissions annually over the next 15 years, through investing in eco-friendly projects like harvesting nuts, seeds, and coffee sustainably, restoring lost forests, diversifying crops to prevent soil erosion, and launching conservation activities -- restoring tropical forests as our most effective and natural carbon capture and storage sinks.

The government program is expected to attract as much as £850 million in private investment, support thousands of green jobs across multiple sectors, such as agriculture, food, and technology in these regions, and to provide 23 pct of the reduction in carbon emissions and climate impacts needed over the next decade to meet the goals set in the Paris Climate Agreement.

  • Wisc. Seeks Low-Carbon, Clean Energy Roadmap (Ind. Report)
    Wisconsin Public Service Commission
    Date: 2021-03-12
    In Madison, Wisconsin Public Service Commission (PSC) has 2-1 to launch an investigation into utilities' ongoing transition to zero-carbon electricity. The investigation seeks to identify economic and environmental benefits of a transition to clean energy and chart a course toward a clean energy future while maintaining reliable and affordable electricity.

    To that end, the PSC will review goals set by the state's five largest utilities to reduce carbon emissions 100 pct by 2050 and meet recommendations stemming from Gov. Tony Evers' executive order on clean energy, as well as the Governor's Climate Change Task Force and ideas for accelerating the clean energy transition as outlined by a Wisconsin group of utilities, consumer advocates and business groups. The investigation will also consider:

  • Retirement of fossil fuel power plants and deployment of new energy alternatives;

  • Increase in customers who generate their own power and are tied to the grid;

  • Increase in new technologies like battery storage;

  • Programs that help customers control their energy use and lower utility bills;

  • The design and operation of the regional transmission grid and wholesale markets.

    According to the most recent strategic energy assessment, 75 pct of the state's power is currently generated with fossil fuels. If nuclear were also excluded, 91 pct of the Badger State's power mix would need to be replaced with renewable energy sources.

    Under Wisconsin state law, the PSC is required to prioritize energy conservation and efficiency, as well as renewable energy resources, to the extent it's "cost-effective, technically feasible, and environmentally sound."

    2020 Global Shipping CO2 Emissions Drop 1 pct (Int'l. Report)
    Marine Benchmark
    Date: 2021-03-08
    Maritime data provider Marine Benchmark is reporting global shipping CO2 emissions decreased 1 pct in 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic curtailed 2020 shipping activity. CO2 emissions among the "Big-3" -- Tankers, Bulk Carriers and Containers -- actually increased 1.2 pct with a 2.4 pct decline in Container emissions offset by growth in the Bulker and Tanker sectors. However, the smaller sectors reversed this growth, with cruise ship emissions fell 45 pct.

    Maritime vessel CO2 emissions are calculated from the carbon content of the fuel consumed. Marine heavy fuel oil is approximately 86 pct carbon -- 3.15 tonnes of CO2 per tonne of fuel consumed. Since the carbon content of diesel (gas oil) is slightly higher, so too are the CO2 emissions per tonne of fuel consumed.

    Marine Benchmark's proprietary algorithms estimate vessel fuel consumption by main and auxiliary engines, based on utilising hourly AIS data for all International Marine Organization (IMO) registered ships spanning a ten 10 year period.

    National Academies to Study Low-Carbon Transport Fuels (Ind Report)
    National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine
    Date: 2021-03-01
    In the nation's capitol, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (National Academies) reports it is forming a committee to study the current methods for life cycle analyses (LCA) of low-carbon transportation fuels in the U.S.

    Low carbon fuel standards, such as the Federal Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS), are major US programs for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation fuels. These standards rely on life cycle assessment (LCA) as a tool to estimate fuel GHG emissions.

    The National Academies aims to develop a reliable and coherent approach for applying LCA to low-carbon fuel standards via a methodological assessment to identify the general characteristics and capabilities of GHG emissions estimation methods commonly needed across various types of low-carbon fuels programs applied at a national level. The committee will include the following considerations:

  • Direct GHG emissions over the entire lifecycle of a given transportation fuel, including feedstock generation or extraction, feedstock conversion to a finished fuel or blendstock, distribution, storage, delivery, and use of the fuel in vehicles.

  • Potentially significant indirect GHG emissions, such as those associated with indirect land use changes attributed to biofuels production.

  • Key assumptions, input parameters, and data quality and quantity for application of lifecycle GHG emission models for different regions of the U.S.

  • Needs for additional data, methods for data collection, standardized inputs for lifecycle analyses, and model improvements.

    The National Academies is seeking approximately 14 members with expertise in the fields of: life cycle analysis (LCA); fuel production and use (including fossil fuels, biofuels, and electricity); economics; greenhouse gas (GHG) emission modeling; uncertainty analysis; terrestrial ecosystems; and environmental policy decision-making.

    Summit Carbon Solutions Touts Biorefinery CCS Project (Ind. Report)
    Summit Agricultural Group
    Date: 2021-02-22
    In the Hawkeye State, Alden-based Summit Agricultural Group is reporting creation of Summit Carbon Solutions, a new business platform that will address the global challenge of decarbonization by developing carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects and accelerating the transition toward sustainable, renewable energy by dramatically lowering the carbon footprint of biorefineries and other carbon dioxide emission sources throughout the Midwestern region of the United States.

    When fully developed, Summit Carbon Solutions will have an infrastructure network capable of capturing and permanently storing more than 10 million tpy of CO2 -- equivalent to taking 2 million cars off the road per year. In addition to the project’s positive environmental impact, it will enhance the economic sustainability of the biofuels and agriculture industries.

    To that end, Summit has partnered with a select group of leading biorefiners in Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, and North Dakota to execute the first phase of the project, which will put them on the path of ultimately delivering a net-zero-carbon fuel. In addition to biorefiners, Summit Carbon Solutions will partner with other industries throughout the Midwest that have carbon reduction goals to help them capture and store their carbon emissions.

    "This is a giant leap forward for the biofuels industry. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a future-focused solution that allows the biorefiners to lower their already attractive carbon footprint by up to 50 pct.Simply put, this will be the most impactful development for the biofuels industry and Midwestern agriculture in decades," according to the Summit Ag release.

    U.S. Ethanol Production Drops (Ind. Report)
    US EIA
    Date: 2021-02-22
    According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), during the week ending on February 12, ethanol production fell to its lowest level in five months -- 911,000 bpd, down from 937,000 bpd during the prior week -- while stockpiles grew.

    A Successful Farming report notes the U.S. Midwest, which produces more ethanol than any other region in the country, saw its production drop to 868,000 bpd from day from 895,000 bpd from the previous week and the lowest output level since late September. The East Coast and Gulf Coast regions stayed at an average of 12,000 bpd while the Rocky Mountain and West Coast production levels were unchanged at 9,000 bpd, on average, according to the EIA. Stockpiles increased to 24.297 million barrels in the seven days ending on February 12.

    In other ethanol industry news, the US EPA has announced all 16 "hardship waiver" exemption petitions under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) from 2020 are still pending. In total, 66 petitions that date back as far as 2011 are still pending.

    As previously noted, "hardship waivers" were intended for refineries producing 75,000 bpd or less and suffered "disproportionate economic hardship" from the costs of RFS compliance. The waiver frees the refineries from an obligation to provide the EPA with biofuels credits proving compliance. (Source: US EIA, Ag Central News, 20 Feb., 2021) Contact: US EIA, www.eia.gov

    UC Davis, LADWP Collaborate on Energy/Water Conservation Study (Ind. Report)
    UC Davis, LADWP
    Date: 2021-02-08
    In California, a collaborative study conducted by the University of California-Davis (UC Davis) and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) has found customer-focused water conservation programs are just as cost-effective -- and in some cases more cost-effective -- as energy efficiency programs in reducing electric power use, GHGs and other energy-intensive operations.

    In the study, UC Davis applied three different estimates of energy intensity, which is the amount of energy embedded within water. The first directly assessed the LADWP service territory; the second had an expanded boundary that included LADWP's imported water infrastructure systems; and the third was a broader estimate for the entire regional hydrologic zone. Researchers also analyzed data on the costs and estimated savings of LADWP's water conservation and energy efficiency programs.

    LADWP's estimated energy savings secured through water conservation programs -- high-efficiency washing machines, toilets/urinals and irrigation systems, and others -- was cost-competitive with LADWP's energy efficiency programs such as more efficient lighting, HVAC and refrigeration systems.

    China Emissions Trading System Sets Interim Rules (Int'l.)
    China Carbon Market
    Date: 2021-02-05
    In Beijing, a set of interim rules for carbon emissions trading management in China came into effect on Monday, marking a key step in the establishment of a unified national emissions trading system (ETS). A total of 2,225 power firms across the country assigned with CO2 emission caps can now trade their emission quotas via the system whereby firms that exceed their caps can purchase unused quotas from those with low emissions. A stable carbon trading among power generators will pave the way for the gradual expansion of the national ETS to include more industries, trading varieties and trading modes, thus promoting the system's healthy and sustainable development.

    In an effort to build a national ETS, the country has been piloting emissions trading at the regional level since 2011, covering seven provinces and cities including Beijing, Shanghai and Guangdong. As previously reported, China aims to bring its carbon emissions to a peak before 2030 and become carbon neutral before 2060.
