Renewable Electric Vehicles: Solving a Vital Piece of the EV Puzzle

Renewable Electric Vehicles: Solving a Vital Piece of the EV Puzzle

Electric vehicles (EVs) are only as clean as the energy that powers them—help your EV customers achieve zero emissions with renewable energy.

In the rush to electrify our highways with personal EVs and fleets of EVs, many new EV owners, both commercial and residential, overlook the fact that the electricity used to power them is from the combined electrical grid, which often includes generation from fossil fuels.

This free webinar on August 12, 2021 discussed strategies to green that power—current regulations that promote EV use of renewable energy, utility green pricing programs, REC purchases and more. Geared towards all participants in the EV ecosystem, this webinar provides solutions that can catalyze the positive climate impact of EVs, allowing users to meet their climate goals and solution providers to help them get there. The webinar includes:

• Smart Electric Power Alliance’s overview of the EV market and those working to power it with renewable electricity
• The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s regulatory perspective on how its Clean Fuels Program focuses on powering EVs with renewable electricity
• Enel X’s case study of its JuiceEco program, which provides Green-e certified renewable energy for its customers, providing a valuable and differentiated service for its eco-minded customers (including Uber drivers!)
• This moderated discussion will help attendees better understand the opportunities and challenges in expediting the clean energy transition in transportation

• Garrett Fitzgerald, Principal, Electrification, SEPA
• Carlos Gonzalez, VP Global Business Development, e-Mobility, Enel X
• Bill Peters, Clean Fuels Program Analyst, Oregon DEQ
• Michelle McGinty, Manager, Program Outreach, CRS (Moderator)

  14. No matter how you charge, it’s greener than gas A

    mid-size EV will generate up to 67% lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than a gasoline internal combustion engine. (Wood Mackenzie, 2018)
  15. What is the Clean Fuels Program? • One of three

    active low carbon fuel standards (OR, CA, BC – WA starting in 2023) • Requires the carbon intensity of all of the state’s transportation energy to decline over time • Takes a lifecycle approach to carbon accounting, so all fuels are assigned carbon intensity scores based on the carbon emitted to produce, convert, transport, and use the fuel to move people and goods • Low-carbon fuels accrue credits (1 ton of CO2e reduced against the target) that can be used by providers of higher carbon fuels to stay in compliance with the program 2
  16. Clean Fuels Program principles To maintain the integrity of the

    Clean Fuels Program, we strive to: • Achieve real and quantifiable GHG reductions • Employ a technology- and fuel-neutral approach • Use the best available science • Provide the incentives for technology development, commercialization, and deployment that will produce permanent paths to decarbonizing the transportation sector 3
  17. Electricity in the Clean Fuels Program • Electricity is a

    key fuel for decarbonizing transportation • The program operates by demanding both more low-carbon fuels, and by demanding lower and lower-carbon versions of those fuels • In the rulemaking that was approved this spring, DEQ looked at ways of increasing the supply (ie, encouraging EV adoption) and lowering the carbon intensity of electricity (ie, encouraging renewables)
  18. Electricity in the Clean Fuels Program • DEQ’s goal with

    the renewable electricity provisions is to provide a clear incentive for more renewable electricity (RE) generation • As the numbers of electric vehicles grow, DEQ believes that the additional demand imposed upon the grid can and should be met with electricity supplied by zero-carbon resources • DEQ believes that allowing a range of options will help send that signal, but that the qualifications for RE should be carefully defined to maintain the integrity of the program • Program requires Green-e certified RECs, lifecycle analyses for certain pathways with emissions, and for non-biogas electricity generators the start date must be 2016 or later 5
  19. Electricity in the Clean Fuels Program • At the Oregon

    grid average carbon intensity, the current credit value in the program of $125/t provides about 8cents/KWh in value for light duty EVs • When you lower the carbon intensity of electricity to zero, the added credit generation is worth another 6cents/KWh • Renewable electricity projects with a negative carbon intensity – ie, reducing methane emissions – can get even more 6
