Solution. The State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (XXXX) establishes a state-level reciprocity process that will support the nation in its efforts to increase the educational attainment of its people by making state authorization: • more efficient, effective, and uniform in regard to necessary and reasonable standards of practice that could span states; • more effective in dealing with quality and integrity issues that have arisen in some online/ distance education offerings; and • less costly for states and institutions and, thereby, the students they serve. Key Points • XXXX is voluntary for states and institutions. • Administered by the four regional higher education compacts (Midwestern Higher Education Compact, New England Board of Higher Education, Southern Regional Education Board, and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education), which began accepting applications from states in their regions in early 2014. Once states are approved, they can begin to enroll eligible institutions. • Membership is open to degree- granting postsecondary institutions from all sectors (public colleges and universities; independent institutions, both non-profit and for-profit) accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education. Benefits to States Benefits to Institutions Benefits to Students • Expands educational offerings to state residents. • Allows XXXX states to focus on their home-state institutions, rather than on institutions from many other states. • Maintains state regulation of on-the-ground instruction offered by out-of-state institutions. • Other XXXX states will help resolve complaints. (XXXX states commit to resolving complaints from distance education offered by their institutions.) • Reduces costs for institutions, lessening this particular need to raise fees and thereby supporting affordability. • No cost to states. • Enables more efficient provision of distance education to a broader market. • Reduces number of other-state regulations to continually monitor and track. • Reduces number of applications and individual state requirements. • Reduces costs. » Applications, surety bonds, agent licenses, etc. » Staff (payroll and time). » Reduced costs = potentially lower fees for students. • Expands access to educational offerings. • Should lead to better resolution of complaints from students in XXXX states. • Reduces a rapidly growing institutional cost that is passed along to students. • Should enhance overall quality of distance e...
Solution. The Recipient will deploy and evaluate APMDs on a mass scale (~55,000 units) at multiple California community college district campuses in electric investor-owned utility (IOU) service territories throughout California. The Recipient will provide outreach and individual education programs to the Community College Districts, working closely with the Districts, equipment manufacturers and installation partner to advise the Districts of the benefits and features of APMD technologies. Following installation, the Recipient will also gather satisfaction information from District facilities and Information Technology (IT) staff, as well as APMD end-users. The deployment of these devices on a mass scale will result in the generation of extensive and detailed performance dataset that will be used to evaluate the devices’ energy and cost savings potential and cost effectiveness, identify any issues with mass deployment, compare and contrast multiple vendor offerings, and fully investigate the devices’ energy information system capabilities and plug load management and control strategies.
Solution. Although concentrating on incremental component efficiency has yielded strong results to date, and may yield further incremental, small improvements, a holistic systems-efficient building or whole-building strategy for existing buildings promises to be the path to significant building energy efficiency. To achieve a systems-efficient building, multiple systems must be designed, installed, and operated to optimize performance collectively with other energy systems both within and outside of the building. This project has identified a suite of measures that together represent a cost-effective and successful reduction in natural gas use and therefore a significant reduction in GHG emissions from the subject hospital. The goal of the proposed integrated technologies and system design approach is to reduce the natural gas consumption and GHG emissions of the host site by over 30%. This will be primarily accomplished by heat recovery measures in the central utility plant (CUP) to save heat energy on the domestic hot water and heating hot water systems including a heat recovery chiller and integrating stack economizers to reduce steam boiler fuel requirements, implementation of variable air volume system (VAV), designing air handlers with separate cold and hot decks to optimize economizer mode, and model-based optimal control strategy to minimize building HVAC energy consumption. These integrated technologies were selected based on preliminary whole building modeling and evaluation of historical energy consumption of the Xxxxxxx Park medical center. Implementation of this project will overcome barriers for decarbonization of large commercial buildings by demonstrating an integrated solution for reducing heating and hot water loads to significantly reduce the energy use and emissions from the hospital host-site.
Solution. The Recipient will replace and retrofit inefficient equipment with commercially available, drop-in, high-efficiency equipment that can reduce energy consumption, operating costs, and equipment downtime at the Recipient’s pie production facility. Further, the Recipient will replace existing high-GWP refrigerants with low-GWP refrigerants. The Recipient will integrate the systems into the food production operation, demonstrating the potential to significantly reduce GHG emissions in food processing facilities in California. By implementing this technology at a large food processing facility, this project will demonstrate the potential for optimized steam and hot water systems, refrigeration systems and baking oven systems to reduce GHG emissions, overall energy consumption, and operating costs at similar food processing facilities.
Solution. Under its existing CEC grant (EPC-19-038), Recipient developed and demonstrated a prototype battery energy storage system that addressed many of the challenges associated with repurposing EV batteries for stationary grid storage, including the mitigation of battery imbalances inherent to used lithium-ion batteries as well as the low-cost integration of batteries with multiple form factors and electrical and thermal characteristics. Recipient’s solution centers on its battery energy storage system called MOAB unit that includes vertically-integrated designs and components for communication and power control interfaces, DC-switching and pre-charge controls, isolation and common mode current protections, and thermal and environmental controls. In this project, Recipient will seek to reduce fabrication and build costs compared to its prototype MOAB Version 1 (V1) design developed under EPC-19- 038 and achieve the required standards certifications to offer MOAB as a competitive product in the California market under relevant jurisdictional permitting and financial sectors. The MOAB product is designed to leverage Recipient’s unique second-life battery data intelligence architecture to optimize repurposed battery operations and lifecycle management. Over the past three years, Recipient has developed proprietary machine learning modeling tools to extract key aging information and predict repurposed EV battery lifecycles for second-use energy storage products. Recipient will establish a Low-Rate Initial Production (LRIP) MOAB V2 facility at its headquarters in Carlsbad, CA. Informed by Recipient’s data and machine learning models, the production line will screen incoming used batteries for qualification in the MOAB product line and multiple customer use cases. Batteries will then be integrated into the MOAB energy storage system with a production process optimized for labor cost reductions. Finally, a full-range testing setup will be established to benchmark power, communications, and safety constraints of the product.
