SCAQMD Awards $47Mn for Cleaner Technologies, Fuels (Funding)
South Coast Air Quality Management District
Date: 2019-01-07
In the Golden State, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) reports it has awarded $47.4 million to 26 businesses, organizations, universities, government agencies and utility companies in the South Coast Basin and Coachella Valley to help them purchase and upgrade their equipment with cleaner flues and energy efficient technologies.

Under the federal Clean Air Act, the SCAQMD service region must meet the 1-hour ozone, 8-hour ozone, 24-hour PM2.5, and annual PM2.5 National Ambient Air Quality Standards within the next 12 years.

Established in 1976, the Diamond Bar-based SCAQMD is responsible for regulating stationary sources of air pollution in the South Coast Air Basin, in Southern California.

Willdan Funded to Research Bundle-Based Energy Efficiency (Funding)
Willdan,California Energy Commission
Date: 2017-12-15
Anaheim, California-headquartered energy efficiency and technical services specialist Willdan Group Inc. reports it has received California Energy Commission (CEC) grant funding to demonstrate emerging energy efficiency technologies through the Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC). These technologies will be demonstrated at the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) headquarters facility in Diamond Bar, California for the purposes of testing for scalability in the larger California commercial market.

The Bundle-Based Energy Efficiency Technology Solutions for California (BEETS) is a 42 month project that upon completion will improve energy efficiency at the SCAQMD facility by over 20 pct. The project has $4 million in CEC EPIC funding and $2.3 million in matching funding, for a total project budget of $6.3 million, along with several subcontractor donations of time and equipment.

As part of the BEETS project, Willdan developed three bundles of pre-commercial technologies for the following spaces: laboratory and critical environments, office and exterior spaces, and chilled water plants. Technologies will include chillers using a new refrigerant that does not deplete the ozone layer; LED fixtures with integrated, advanced controls; an advanced building management system; direct current lighting systems; advanced ventilation and laboratory fume hood exhaust systems; wirelessly integrated plug load controls; and a platform capable of demand response.

SoCalGas, UCR Partner on Renewable Natural Gas Research (R&D)
University of California Riverside,SoCalGas
Date: 2017-05-22
The Center for Renewable Natural Gas at the University of California, Riverside, and Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas), San Diego, are touting the new Center for Renewable Natural Gas at the University of California, Riverside -- the first academic establishment in the U.S. dedicated to the study and applied research of renewable gas technologies.

The center was partially funded by SoCalGas with a matching donation from the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) and the National Center for Sustainable Transportation (NCST) and is part of UC Riverside's Center for Environmental Research & Technology (CE-CERT).

The center will focus on improving technologies and removing barriers to increase renewable gas use in California and beyond. Areas of research include: high yield renewable natural gas production; storing renewable energy with power-to-gas technology; technologies that can increase renewable gas use in heavy-duty trucking and other transportation; market and policy issues; and potential sites for renewable gas production projects.
