Notice of Workshop

IEPR Commissioner Workshop on Updates to the California Energy Demand 2022-2035 Forecast

The California Energy Commission (CEC) will host a workshop to present the energy demand analysis for the 2022 Integrated Energy Policy Report (2022 IEPR). The workshop will address results from the 2022 California Energy Demand Forecast, including the annual electricity forecasts and the hourly and peak electricity demand forecast.

Description:

This message is to address projects permitted under the 2019 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Energy Code) in cases where the projects have specified Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rated equipment in the design, but the equipment installed uses a SEER2 rating.

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) published final rule of increased efficiency standards for residential air conditioners and heat pumps takes effect on January 1, 2023, can be found at https://www.regulations.gov/document/EERE-2014-BT-STD-0048-0102. The updated DOE test procedure (PDF) is used to determine new product efficiency ratings and is intended to be more representative of installations in homes. The URL for the test procedures can be found here (PDF). As part of the update, SEER, energy efficiency ratio (EER), and heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) ratings will no longer be used and will be replaced by new ratings SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2. This new system of measurement will apply to all single-phase air conditioners and heat pumps less than 65,000 Btu per hour.

Air conditioners that are installed in California on or after January 1, 2023, must comply with the new standards. Heat pumps are allowed a sell-through provision where the new standards apply to products manufactured on or after January 1, 2023. HVAC manufactures have been preparing for these changes and have products using the SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2 ratings.

In a scenario where SEER rated equipment is specified in the project design on the residential certificate of compliance (CF1R) and equipment with only a SEER2 rating is installed and reported on the certificate of installation (CF2R), Table 1 may be used to convert the manufacturer’s SEER2 rating value to a SEER rating value to determine if the installed equipment is compliant with the Energy Code.

Table 1. Equations Used to Convert Respective  Ratings

System Type

Equation

Split System Air Conditioner
and Heat Pump

SEER = SEER2 X 1.05

Split System Air Conditioner
and Heat Pump 

EER = EER2 X 1.04

 Split System Air Conditioner
and Heat Pump

HSPF = HSPF2 X 1.17

Packaged Air Conditioner
and Heat Pump

SEER = SEER2 X 1.04

Packaged Air Conditioner
and Heat Pump 

EER = EER2 X 1.04

 Packaged Air Conditioner
and Heat Pump

HSPF = HSPF2 X 1.18

Space Constrained System

SEER = SEER2 X 1.01

 Space Constrained System

HSPF = HSPF2 X 1.17

Small Duct High Velocity System

SEER = SEER2 X 1.00

 Small Duct High Velocity System

HSPF = HSPF2 X 1.18

Source: California Energy Commission

The installer performs the conversion when completing the CF2R. The actual SEER2 rating value must be included in the form notes as “SEER2 rating = XX.X” and the converted SEER rating value must be entered in the efficiency value field.

The building official must be able to confirm that the SEER2 rating of the equipment installed on site matches the SEER2 rating value included in the form notes and that the SEER rating value is converted accurately using Table 1.

The same method described above can be used to demonstrate compliance for the EER2 and HSPF2 ratings.

The Energy Standards Hotline (title24@energy.ca.gov) is available to help with Energy Code (Title 24, Part 6) questions.

Description:

Updates support grid reliability, lower utility bills through automation and time-of-use rates

Sacramento - The California Energy Commission (CEC) today adopted updates to the state’s load management standards that will give consumers more timely and accurate information on electricity costs, to help them manage energy use – especially around times when demand is high. 

As the state’s primary energy policy and planning agency, the CEC has statutory authority to adopt standards to help shift energy use. Load management offers California another tool to support grid reliability particularly in late afternoon and evening when demand increases as the sun goes down. Today’s action is expected to produce $243 million in net benefits over 15 years and could reduce annual peak hour electricity use by 120 gigawatt hours, equivalent to powering 20,000 average California homes for a year.

The updates will help customers take better advantage of utilities’ lower time-dependent rates so smart appliances can be used and buildings can automatically respond to more frequent rate changes that reflect electricity grid conditions. This will save consumers money by shifting usage to times of cheaper or abundant electricity. In addition, a better-balanced grid slows the rise of electricity costs, strengthens the grid, reduces the need for more fossil fuel plants, and avoids electricity transmission and distribution congestion.

“This update is a huge leap into the 21st century, using digital approaches to unlock benefits for consumers by enabling them to automate their electricity use around cheaper rates and changing grid conditions,” said Commissioner Andrew McAllister. “Automated load management reduces energy bills, makes better use of abundant renewable energy resources available during the day, and strengthens grid reliability.”

Under the updated standards, which will take effect April 1, 2023, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Southern California Edison Company, Sacramento Municipal Utility District, San Diego Gas & Electric, Los Angeles Water and Power, and large community choice aggregators will be required to make the following improvements: 

  • Develop retail electricity rates that change at least hourly to reflect grid costs and greenhouse gas emissions and are approved by their governing board.
  • Maintain up-to-date rates in a database called the Market Informed Demand Automation Server (MIDAS), which will provide a central repository for all rate information.
  • Educate customers about time-dependent rates and automation technologies to encourage their use. 

The changes help advance energy equity by introducing fairer compensation mechanisms, creating bill savings for customers with flat loads in disadvantaged communities or who are able to shift usage to when electricity is cheaper, and lowering energy costs for all customers by reducing peak electricity demand.

Since 1978, the CEC encouraged load management through utility air conditioner cycling programs that automatically reduce use at commercial or industrial sites, for example, during emergency summer peak loads. As technology has advanced over time, more appliances such as thermostats, pool pumps and residential water heaters have been automated to reduce use or shift time of use from high-demand hours, in response to signals from utilities and energy aggregators.

8th Annual EPIC Symposium October 4, 2022

Want to know the latest in EPIC research?

With the growing impacts of climate change — including extreme heat, wildfires, and drought — the shift to sustainable energy has never been so urgent. California continues to ratchet up its actions as a global leader in the transition to a clean, resilient, and inclusive energy economy. The state is deepening its investment in technological innovation — bringing new products and services to market, driving technology performance and cost improvements, and expanding the opportunities of clean energy to all Californians. Helping drive this transformation, EPIC’s public-interest research is empowering California innovators and entrepreneurs.

Register today for the 2022 EPIC Symposium to discover the cutting edge of clean energy research and learn from clean energy visionaries working to ensure a healthier, safer, more affordable, and more resilient energy future for California.

For more information on the event agenda, and how to register, visit the California Energy Commissions event page.

Here are just a few highlights:

Lightning in a Bottle: The Future of Electric Vehicles and the Grid

As electric vehicle sales continue to accelerate, the integration between vehicles and the grid becomes increasingly important to unlock new value propositions for consumers and to advance reliable and resilient electric service. Join California Energy Commission Chair David Hochschild as he speaks with government, industry, and grid management leaders about the future of vehicle-grid-integration in this living room chat.

The Great Implementation: California and Federal Partnerships to Build the Clean Energy Future

The 2022–23 California state budget and recent federal legislation — including the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act – make significant investments in the development and deployment of clean energy technologies. Hear from federal and state leaders about the vision for this catalytic infusion of public investment for the state and communities.

Advancing Equitable Building Decarbonization in California  

Innovative strategies are needed to accelerate building decarbonization, especially in under resourced communities. Join the CEC to learn how research projects are unlocking new energy transition pathways for California to achieve its renewable energy and decarbonization goals.

The goal of this project is to continue to develop a new class of advanced battery sensors, with applications in manufacturing quality control, ultrafast charging, and evaluating second-life capabilities. The Parthian Electromagnetic Sensor (PES) detects internal defects in lithium-ion battery cells by evaluating the change in the battery’s electromagnetic signature. This process reduces unnecessary scrap, enhances safety, and enables higher energy density cells to be deployed into EVs and grid storage with decreased risk of thermal runaway.
    29. Leap Photovoltaics Inc., Cost and CapEx Reduction of Silicon Photovoltaics through Streamlined Manufacturing, David Berney Needleman, $450,000. The goal of this project is to further develop a process to manufacture crystalline silicon solar cells without wafers. This additive manufacturing approach directly deposits a layer of silicon microparticles to a surface that absorbs sunlight and converts it to electricity, achieving the same performance and reliability as traditional solar cells at half the cost while enabling the use of local supply chains. This unique combination addresses the thin margins and supply chain disruptions of solar manufacturing and is more sustainable. Furthermore, this process makes direct integration of solar energy generation with new products like vehicles and roofing materials easier, opening new markets for solar energy.
    30. Gridware Inc., Improving Situational Awareness of Distribution Equipment during Extreme Weather Conditions, Tim Barat, $450,000. The goal of this project is to demonstrate a system of low-cost, solar-powered, sensor platforms that are deployed across a distribution grid to provide real-time monitoring and fault anticipation. Gridware’s solution is centered around a primarily mechanical sensor package that characterizes and monitors the behavior of the electric distribution system. This introduces a way to mechanically monitor the system as opposed to the traditional electrical monitoring that is currently employed by utilities. Mechanical monitoring can reveal the weakening of the system as it ages, identify components that have loading beyond normal conditions, and indicate precursors to critical failures. The solution can further be deployed into real-time control to de-energize the system before failure.

Business Meeting Agenda

December 8, 2021

10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Remote participation instructions below, after line items.

Public comment is accepted solely through the Zoom platform. 

The California Energy Commission’s (CEC) December 8, 2021 Business Meeting will be held remotely, consistent with Assembly Bill 361 (Rivas, Chapter 165, Statutes of 2021) to improve and enhance public access to state meetings during the COVID-19 pandemic and future emergencies by allowing broader access through teleconferencing options. The public can participate in the business meeting consistent with the direction provided below.

Please note that the CEC aims to begin promptly at the start time and the end time is an estimate based on the agenda proposed. The business meeting may end sooner or later than the time indicated depending on various factors.

Pursuant to California Code of Regulations, Title 20, section 1104(e), any person may make oral comment on any agenda item. To ensure the orderly conduct of business, such comments will be limited to three minutes or less per person. Any person wishing to comment on information items or reports (non-voting items) shall speak during the general public comment portion of the meeting and have three minutes or less to address all remaining comments.

THE CEC WILL CONSIDER AND MAY TAKE ACTION ON THE FOLLOWING:

1. Consent Calendar.

Items will be taken up and voted on as a group. A commissioner may request that an item be moved and discussed later in the meeting. 

  1. Guidelines for California's Solar Electric Incentive Programs (Senate Bill 1), Seventh Edition. Proposed resolution to revise the Senate Bill 1 Guidelines. Senate Bill 1 (Murray, Statutes of 2006) established the framework for the California Solar Initiative, which directs the CEC to develop eligibility criteria, conditions for incentives, and rating standards that must be met to qualify for ratepayer-funded incentives. The proposed resolution amends the Senate Bill 1 Guidelines by changing the start date for when the CEC will only accept a safety certification issued for photovoltaic modules by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) with UL 61730 in its scope of recognition. Staff proposes to change the start date from January 1, 2022, to a deadline of two years after the Occupational Safety & Health Administration determines that UL 61730 is an appropriate test standard for the NRTL program. Contact: Edgar Rodriguez
  2. Prospect Silicon Valley. Proposed resolution approving Agreement ZVI-21-009 with Prospect Silicon Valley for a $190,058 grant to develop a planning blueprint document that will outline the transition of Berkeley Unified School District’s diesel school bus fleet to battery electric school buses while mitigating the operational challenges and risks of deploying new technologies into existing operations, and adopting staff’s determination that this action is exempt from CEQA. (General Fund Funding) Contact: Kate Reid
  3. Prospect Silicon Valley. Proposed resolution approving Agreement ZVI-21-010 with Prospect Silicon Valley for a $190,048 grant to develop a planning blueprint document that will outline the transition of Twin Rivers School District’s diesel school bus fleet to battery electric school buses while mitigating the operational challenges and risks of deploying new technologies into existing operations, and adopting staff’s determination that this action is exempt from CEQA. (General Fund Funding) Contact: Kate Reid

2. Small Power Plant Exemption (SPPE) for the Great Oaks South Backup Generating Facility (20-SPPE-01).

Consideration and possible approval of an order adopting the Committee Proposed Decision on the Application for an SPPE for the Great Oaks South Backup Generating Facility. The Committee issued the Proposed Decision on November 24, 2021, recommending that the CEC certify a Final Environmental Impact Report and addendum prepared pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), adopt a mitigation monitoring or reporting program, and grant an SPPE for the Great Oaks South Backup Generating Facility. The project would include 36 3.25-megawatt (MW) and three 500-kilowatt standby diesel generators to provide an uninterruptable power supply to the Great Oaks South Data Center when electrical power is not provided by the grid. Located at 123, 127, and 131 Great Oaks Boulevard in San Jose, California, the generators would be restricted to generating electricity to meet the maximum electrical demand of the Great Oaks South Data Center of 99 MW and would not be connected! to the grid. Contact: Ralph Lee (Staff Presentation: 15 minutes)

  1. Possible closed session deliberation on the above described SPPE. [Government Code Section 11126(c)(3)].

3. Order Instituting Rulemaking Proceeding for Amendments to Procedures for Delegating Geothermal Certification Authority and for SPPEs.

Proposed Order Instituting Rulemaking to consider amendments to the CEC’s powerplant licensing processes and procedures to 1) simplify the process for the CEC to delegate full authority for the certification of geothermal powerplants within a county which has adopted a geothermal element for its general plan and demonstrates that it has an equivalent certification program (Title 20, California Code of Regulations, sections 1860-1870), and 2) streamline the procedures for exempting thermal powerplants with a generating capacity of up to 100 MW from the CEC’s exclusive certification authority (Title 20, California Code of Regulations, sections 1934-1948 and Appendix F). The proposed amendments would streamline the administrative procedures for these decisions to accelerate the permitting of energy projects that serve the Governor’s state energy procurement directives, while ensuring that all environmental, public health, safety, and reliability requirement! s of the Warren-Alquist Act are met.

Description:

The California Energy Commission (CEC) seeks stakeholders’ input on the pre-rulemaking draft proposed regulatory language for the Flexible Demand Appliance Standards (FDAS) required by Senate Bill 49 (Skinner, Chapter 697, Statutes of 2019). The FDAS promote technologies to schedule, shift, and curtail appliance operations to benefit consumers and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with electricity generation, while supporting electricity grid operations.

The draft proposed regulatory language would establish standards including definitions, test procedures, labeling and reporting requirements, certification, cybersecurity, consumer consent, and enforcement procedures.

The CEC is providing a pre-rulemaking draft of the proposed regulatory language to inform the public and to solicit feedback in coordination with the request for information (RFI) that was released on September 1, 2021. The draft proposed regulatory language can be found in docket 20-FDAS-01 [https://efiling.energy.ca.gov/Lists/DocketLog.aspx?docketnumber=20-FDAS-01].

Comments on the draft proposed regulatory language are due to the docket on or prior to November 1, 2021.

2021-08-11
Location: Sacramento California
Description:

SACRAMENTO – The California Energy Commission (CEC) today adopted the 2022 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Energy Code) for newly constructed and renovated buildings that will produce benefits to support the state’s public health, climate and clean energy goals.

As the state's primary energy policy and planning agency, the CEC adopts standards every three years to cost-effectively increase the energy efficiency and lower the carbon footprint of buildings. Homes and businesses use nearly 70 percent of California’s electricity and are responsible for a quarter of the state’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

“Buildings profoundly influence our health, environment and economy. Into the future they will use less energy and emit less pollution while still being comfortable and healthy,” said Commissioner J. Andrew McAllister, who is the lead commissioner on energy efficiency. “The 2022 Energy Code firmly pivots California’s buildings toward the clean, low-carbon technologies that are the bedrock on which our collective path forward will rest. This foundation will help the state meet its critical long-term climate and carbon neutrality goals."

The 2022 update will be submitted to the California Building Standards Commission (CBSC), which is scheduled to consider it in December 2021. If approved by the CBSC, it would go into effect on January 1, 2023, giving builders, contractors and other interested parties a year to gear up for the changes.

The 2022 Energy Code focuses on four key areas in newly constructed homes and businesses:

  • Encouraging electric heat pump technology for space and water heating, which consumes less energy and produces fewer emissions than gas-powered units.

  • Establishing electric-ready requirements for single-family homes to position owners to use cleaner electric heating, cooking and electric vehicle (EV) charging options whenever they choose to adopt those technologies.

  • Expanding solar photovoltaic (PV) system and battery storage standards to make clean energy available onsite and complement the state’s progress toward a 100 percent clean electricity grid.

  • Strengthening ventilation standards to improve indoor air quality.

The impact of climate change is accelerating, bringing an even greater need for buildings that are comfortable, efficient and resilient. Each updated code guides the construction of buildings to better withstand extreme weather, lower energy costs and reduce climate and air pollution.

Over the next 30 years, the 2022 Energy Code is estimated to provide $1.5 billion in consumer benefits and reduce 10 million metric tons of GHGs, equivalent to taking nearly 2.2 million cars off the road for a year. Expanded adoption of new energy-efficient technologies will help reduce costs of the technology over time.

For more information, view the executive summary and learn more at the 2022 standards web page.

About the California Energy Commission
The California Energy Commission is leading the state to a 100 percent clean energy future. It has seven core responsibilities: developing renewable energy, transforming transportation, increasing energy efficiency, investing in energy innovation, advancing state energy policy, certifying thermal power plants, and preparing for energy emergencies.
