Clean Energy – Greenville, SC
          May 29, 2009
                     Who is SEEA?
The Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance
builds regional partnerships to promote and
achieve energy efficiency for a cleaner
environment, a more prosperous economy,
and a higher quality of life.
  Covering 11 southeastern states
  71 million residents
      SEEA Participants

State, federal & local governments,
electric and natural gas utilities,
businesses (energy users and efficiency
suppliers), and Non-Governmental
Organizations (NGOs) (environment,
low income housing, etc.).
            Why SEEA?

• Electric energy efficiency spending
  per capita in the Southeast is just
  one-fifth the national average.

 The Southeast region has the
 lowest levels in the nation for
 ENERGY STAR market penetration.

Qualified Energy Conservation Bonds Are
               Expanded


 Recovery Act authorizes the issuance of an additional $2.4
 billion of qualified energy conservation bonds, for a total
 national limitation of $3.2 billion.

    To reduce carbon footprint and other qualified conservation
    purposes,
    Implement green community programs
    Rural development of renewable electricity (PTC)
    Technology to reduce energy use
    Green building technology
    Others…
                                                                  18
  Qualified Energy Conservation
              Bonds
A qualified energy conservation bond is any bond issued as
   part of an issue that meets the qualified tax credit bond
   requirements (expenditures, reporting, arbitrage,
   maturity, and financial conflicts of interest) if:
      100% of the issue's available project proceeds are to
      be used for one or more qualified conservation
      purposes (defined in the next few slides);
      the bond is issued by a state or local
      government; and
      the issuer designates the bond as a qualified
      energy conservation bond.

                                                               19

   (4) automobile battery technologies and other technologies to
   reduce fossil fuel consumption in transportation; or
   (5) technologies to reduce energy use in buildings.

                                                                   21

       Germany and Green
Germany Created Jobs by Going Green
250,000 Jobs created in renewable energy including
50,000 wind power jobs in the last 5 years.
What were the drives? Incentives, tickets for
polluting cars, competitions, education, and training.
Green jobs creation program costs the average
German family $38 per year.
The country leads Europe in developing and
exporting green technology generating $240 billion
in annual revenue.
         Macroeconomic of Florida's Energy and Climate
                         Change Action Plan

Implementation of 28 climate, energy and economic policy
recommendations would result in the following outcomes between
2009 and 2025:

  148,000 net job gains, beginning immediately.
  $38 billion net cumulative increase in Gross State Product (in Year
  2000 dollars).
  $28 billion net economic savings, primarily from new energy
  efficiency actions.
  Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to 20 percent below 1990
  levels by 2020, equal to 1.9 billion tons of greenhouse gas
  emissions.
  Net savings of 53.5 billion gallons of petroleum, 200.2 million short
  tons of coal, and 6.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas.
