    • The Energy Commission adopted a resolution strengthening its commitment to diversity in our funding programs. The Energy Commission continues to encourage disadvantaged and underrepresented businesses and communities to engage in and benefit from our many programs.

    • To meet this commitment, Energy Commission staff conducts outreach efforts and activities to:

    • Engage with disadvantaged and underrepresented groups throughout the state.

    • Notify potential new applicants about the Energy Commission’s funding opportunities.

    • Assist applicants in understanding how to apply for funding from the Energy Commission’s programs.

    • Survey participants to measure progress in diversity outreach efforts.

  • Research Program Background

    9

    • The Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) Program is an electricity ratepayer surcharge established by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in December 2011

    • The purpose of the EPIC program is to benefit the ratepayers of the three investor-owned utilities (IOUs)*

    • The EPIC program funds clean energy technology projects that promote greater electricity reliability, lower costs, and increased safety oApplied research and development (ARD) oTechnology demonstration and deployment (TDD) oMarket facilitation (MF)

  • Policy Drivers

    10

    • SB 32: reduction of GHG emission to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030

    • SB 350: California’s Renewable Portfolio Standard and Energy Efficiency for End-Use Customers

    • 2019 California Energy Efficiency Action Plan: expands on the Existing Buildings Energy Action Plan and includes topics related to existing buildings’ energy efficiency, low-income barriers to energy efficiency, and doubling energy efficiency by 2030.

    • AB523: Allocate 25 percent of EPIC TD&D funding for projects located in and benefiting disadvantaged communities

    • Load Management Standards: encourages demand flexibility of the energy system – minimizing cost, improving reliability and promoting renewable energy resources.

  • Issues Associated with Plug Loads and Exterior Lighting

    11

    • Plug Loads o40% of California residential electricity consumption and 27% of

    California commercial electricity consumption in 2018 due to plug loads.

    oTotal energy use for plug loads is expected to increase in the future. oMany of these devices have no power management capabilities and

    are left on 24/7. • Exterior Lighting

    o22% of all electricity used is for exterior lighting in California which includes streetlights, parking lot lights, security lights, walkway lights, wall packs and other exterior commercial applications.

    oPoor exterior lighting is one of the main concerns among residents of low-income communities

    oLights are on when the electric grid is not supported by renewable energy at night

  • Purpose of Solicitation

    12

    • The purpose of this solicitation is to fund applied research and technology demonstration projects to advance innovative technologies for controlling plug loads and exterior lighting energy use. oPlug loads: reduce electricity use of active and standby modes for

    residential and commercial plug load devices, provide information that may inform future updates to codes and standards, and reduce commercial plug load electricity use with advanced controls integrated with building energy management systems (BEMS)

    oExterior lighting: reduce exterior lighting electricity consumption through use of hybrid solid-state lighting, and improve fixture efficiency and form factor, and controls to maximize use of carbon-free electricity.

    • Refer to Section I.K. in the Solicitation Manual for more details on match funding.

  • Group 1: Analyze and Test Total Energy Consumption of Plug Load Devices to Support Codes and Standards for Non-covered Products

    16

    Funding Amount: $1,000,000 (Applied Research and Development) Purpose:

    • Analyze devices not currently covered by California or US Standards

    • Determine their total energy consumption that includes standby and active modes

    • Identify those with the most potential for cost-effective energy savings

    • Develops and test improvements to reduce electricity consumption.

  • Group 1- Requirements

    17

    • Include at least 2 groups of commercial devices and 1 group of residential devices with a total of 3 groups as indicated in Section I.C.

    • Commercial Equipment: o Group 1c: Office equipment such as printers, multi-function devices, and fax machines, o Group 2c: Networking equipment such as modems, integrated access devices, and local network

    equipment, o Group 3c: Commercial lab equipment such as fume hoods, autoclaves, incubators, centrifuges; o Group 4c: Commercial computers

    • Residential Equipment: o Group 1r: Networking equipment such as routers and modems o Group 2r: Office Equipment such as printers and multifunctional devices

    • Each group must test a minimum of 5 devices • Test a minimum of 15 different devices (5 devices per group). • Other devices and groups of plug loads may be considered with justification as to why

    that group of products have high potential to be adopted through codes and standards.

  • Group 1- Project Narrative

    18

    Include the following in the Project Narrative (Attachment 3) Project Approach • Discuss why new standards or improvements to existing standards are needed, the

    benefits to be gained and interest of manufacturers and the plug load industry. • Explain the approach used to develop total power consumption for device modes and
