Webinar: Preserving Public Safety: Role of Backup Generators in Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief and Recovery

September 27, 2013

Diesel-powered generators can save lives during a power crisis. Interruptions of electrical power - even of short duration - create situations that could imperil public health and safety. Blackouts also wreak havoc for businesses and create significant inconveniences for individuals. Emergency generators must be able to provide reliable, immediate and full strength electric power when there is a failure of the primary power supply system.

Full scale natural weather-related disasters in 2012 called attention to the vulnerability of the nation's electrical grid and the importance of continuous electrical power.

Superstorm Sandy that slammed the Mid-Atlantic region and micro-weather events and ice storms that downed trees and power lines in New England and Washington DC, cut off power to hundreds of thousands of people and businesses for days. These have provided unique insights into the importance of emergency backup power as part of local, state and federal emergency preparedness, response and recovery. 

This free webinar provided a basic understanding of the issues surrounding the use of emergency backup power systems, technology and fuel choices, operating conditions and case studies. 

Who should attend? Federal state and local policymakers, elected officials, Emergency planners, building owners and operators and engineers, business owners, insurance providers. 

What will this webinar address? 
• What technologies are available to provide emergency backup electrical power?
• What are the differences between technologies?
• What are the limitations on use of each of these technologies?
• What are lessons learned in placement and use of backup generators?

Perils and Prospects of an "All of the Above" Approach to the Energy Future
Newseum, Knight Broadcast Studio, 555 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
June 20, 2012

President Obama has said he supports expanded domestic oil and gas production as part of an "all of the above" strategy designed to promote energy independence. But Republicans accuse the president of promulgating unnecessary regulations, moving too slow to increase domestic production, and picking winners and losers in support of green technologies while de-emphasizing readily-available resources.

Can we decrease America's energy costs while reducing our dependency on foreign oil? How does the Administration's fuel and energy efficiency standards impact industry, consumers and the environment? And, how do domestic fossil fuels such as petroleum, coal and natural gas fit in the President's energy strategy?

Join National Journal as we explore how striking the right balance between green technologies and existing energy sources could impact America's energy future and the U.S.

State Legislators See and Hear about Clean Diesel’s Contribution to Greener Transportation

Allen Schaeffer, Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum, addressed more than 100 state legislators on diesel’s contribution to cleaner transportation at the National Conference of State Legislatures’ 2011 Energy Policy Summit in San Antonio. The presentation was given as part of a sponsored luncheon amidst a diverse display of clean diesel vehicles ranging from cars and pickup trucks to a motor grader and a diesel hybrid school bus.

Underpinning diesel’s advantages is its inherent superior energy density compared to other fuels such as gasoline, natural gas and renewable fuels. Schaeffer noted that this, together with diesel’s low emissions, durability, efficiency and availability, meant that clean diesel would play a strong role in establishing a sustainable energy future.  He added that the growing use of hybrid technologies and renewable diesel fuels in concert with diesel engines would enable significant savings in petroleum consumption and CO2 emissions. 

With a new Ram 3500 Laramie pickup truck beside him, Schaeffer showed how the purchase of heavy-duty diesel pickup trucks sold from 2003-2007 would save 37 times more CO2 emissions and 25 times more fuel than would be saved by the number of Prius purchases during these same four years.  He noted that there was no one silver bullet, but rather several silver technology pellets that would all contribute to the realization of a greener transportation future; however the lack of available alternatives, particularly in the construction, locomotive and marine sectors, would mean that clean diesel technology would be part of our transportation system for the foreseeable future.

Making Transportation and Goods Movement Leaner, Cleaner & Greener Using Renewable Fuels and Advanced Diesel Technologies to Reduce Petroleum Consumption 

 

Diesel engines have been the cornerstone of key sectors of the U.S. economy – transportation, manufacturing, mining and farming – for over half a century.  Diesel technology has continuously improved, virtually eliminating emissions from today’s heavy-duty diesel trucks.  Although today’s diesel engines still run primarily on diesel fuel, these needs are being reduced through engine and vehicle enhancements, application of hybrid technologies and greater use of renewable diesel fuels.  Most importantly, these technologies will be available more quickly and at less cost than others that require significant infrastructure investments.

This three-part luncheon series discussed how commercial availability of renewable diesel fuel and further fuel economy enhancements such as those currently underway in DOE’s vehicle technologies program make diesel technology a smart, high-value, low-cost investment for reducing America’s dependence on petroleum.

Fueling the Future in a Green Economy

May 13, 2011

Over the last several years, petroleum diesel fuel has become increasingly cleaner as sulfur levels were reduced, similar to taking the lead out of gasoline. It is also becoming more expensive, making the switch to renewable fuels one which will provide both environmental and economic benefits. This briefing looked at diesel fuel demand and prices, the growing use of biodiesel along the I-75 corridor running from Michigan to Florida, and the development of next generation, commercially available, drop-in renewable diesel fuel.

A near-capacity room of Congressional staff members, industry and energy representatives gathered on Capitol Hill to hear a diverse group of speakers – including U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett – discuss clean diesel technology and renewable diesel’s role in “Fueling the Future in a Green Economy.”

The three-part Congressional luncheon series focusing on making U.S. transportation and goods movement more fuel efficient and environmentally-friendly was hosted by the Diesel Technology Forum.  The luncheon series will closely examine how commercial availability of renewable diesel fuel and further fuel economy enhancements such as those currently underway in the U.S. Department of Energy’s vehicle technologies program make diesel technology a smart, high-value, low-cost investment for reducing America’s dependence on petroleum.

At the May 13th event, Rep. Bartlett, the co-chairman of the House Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Caucus, opened with remarks about his long standing commitment toward developing renewable energy sources for America’s energy security.  He also stressed the importance of educating Congress and the American public about the need for a comprehensive energy program.

Rep. Bartlett and staff member Lisa Wright are working closely with the Forum in developing the briefing series and informing other Congressional members and staff about the events.

Diesel Technology Forum Executive Director Allen Schaeffer, moderated the briefing and also gave a presentation about clean diesel technology, the significant reduction in emissions it provides, and diesel’s role in a sustainable energy future through greater use of  diesel hybrid and renewable diesel technology.

Terrence Higgins of Hart Energy Consulting gave a detailed presentation entitled “Clean Diesel Fuel: Demand, Prices, Availability and Advantages”.  Higgins outlined the findings of a Hart Energy study conducted for the Diesel Technology Forum, noting that global demand for diesel fuel would grow much faster than demand for gasoline and that refiners were accounting for this growth in their expansion plans.  He concluded diesel would play a significant role in the emergence of the green energy economy because of diesel fuel’s unique attributes – its energy density, low-sulfur content, widespread availability and compatibility with biofuels.

Charise Stephens, the Executive Director of the Middle Georgia Clean Cities Coalition, spoke about the “I 75 Green Corridor Project” which has the goal of establishing I?75 as the nation’s longest biofuels corridor.  To accomplish this, several Clean Cities Coalitions are installing enough E85 and B20 pumps to allow travel from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan to Miami, FL on those fuels.  So far, Stephens said four stations were completed in Lexington, Atlanta, Gainesville and Miami.  She also highlighted the importance of biodiesel in reducing emissions and dependence on foreign oil.

Joel Velasco, Senior Vice President for Amyris – the Forum’s newest member – discussed Amyris’ role as an integrated renewable products company focused on providing sustainable alternatives to a broad range of petroleum-based products. Amyris’ emergence in renewable fuels came about in 2005 as they worked to develop a lower cost, consistent supply of artemisinin, a key malaria drug component.  Using a similar formula based on biomass sugars, Amyris developed hydro-carbon petroleum replacements. The company’s renewable diesel has been approved by EPA for 35 percent blends.
