Building An Efficient Renewable Energy System: Advanced Energy Performance Contracting as Key Tool
What: Advanced Energy Performance Contracting (AEPC) is a market based tool established with government leadership to build in 20 years an efficient renewable energy system to replace fossil fuel and nuclear generation without tax increases, without cap and trade schemes, and without rate hikes, and using private investment.
AEPC is driven by competition between energy developers chosen by low-bids to install a mixture of efficiency and renewable energy measures. It combines the skills of the Energy Services Industry, Renewable Energy Developers, and Energy Financiers. Competition and economies of scale will progressively drive down prices.
AEPC takes advantage of the low cost and quick payback of efficiency negawatts combined with currently more costly renewables, for example, a mixture of 30 negawatts of efficiency measures and 10 megawatts of renewables, financed as a package.
AEPC is a good path for the creation of many millions of jobs.
How: Advanced Energy Performance Contracting , the Public Utility Commission, Energy Office, Municipal Utility, Public Power Authority, Energy Cooperative, or other government entity will issue a competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) periodically (every three to six months) for a specified mixture of efficiency and renewables, subject to measurement and verification.
The winning bidder has broad choice of efficiency and renewable technologies to accomplish goals specified in the RFP. AEPCis undertaken on a mass utility scale, addressed to all members of a rate class. The costs for AEPC are recovered through electric and natural gas utility rates that will include charges for negawatts, nega-therms, renewable energy, and conventional energy . User energy bills should be less than existing charges for similar consumption without negawatts and negatherms.
