Energy Conservation Assistance Program (ECAP)
Residential Energy & Efficiency Works (RENEW) Programme Design
Programme Mobilisation Advanced Metering
Dynamic Pricing Models
Home Performance Contracting Focus on British Columbia
Colour & Context - rates, fuel, etc.
Evolution of programmes MARKET BACKGROUND Abundance of natural resources in BC has resulted in low utility rates (electricity and natural gas)
A report estimated that 292K or 18% of households live in fuel poverty
Traditional DSM directed at able-to-pay market using incentive / rebate models - exacerbated barriers for low income
Until 2009, Utilities were not mandated to offer low income specific demand side management (DSM) programs - annual DSM expenditure in BC was $160m The average Irish household spends €2,200 on energy annually. SOURCE: Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland The average BC household ~€1,200 on energy annually. SOURCE: Ministry of Energy Mines & Natural Gas Work still required in streamlining administrative processes - significant barrier
Shift focus to energy-savings from participant numbers in success evaluation
Fuel neutral is best - maximize the opportunity and avoid inefficiencies
"If you build it, they may not come" - involve contractors in marketing to drive numbers Incentivize contractors to maximize equivalent leakage area (ELA) reduction
Ventilation is critical - health & safety + utility risk management
Continue to evolve and change - new technology and IT Smart metering significant opportunity in residential energy management - education and awareness is critical
Dynamic pricing models (i.e. time-of-use) requires new tools beyond ability to monitor - control & optimization!
House-as-a-System - development of Home Performance Contracting industry - training + quality assurance
