Agenda Climate Wise/GWI Program Established in 1995 Enhancing Voluntary Reporting of Greenhouse Gasses Integrating Federal & State Registries Emissions Trading, Cap & Trade Energy Star, Climate Leaders, Climate Vision, Waste Wise, Industrial Technologies Program Proposals for North Carolina to stay as the main State in Industrial reporting of GHG Emission

Slide 3

Past 1995-2001: $60K Federal, $60K State (Overchg.Fund) Two missions, 1) Obtain State Funding, 2) Determine Best Practices for Industrial ecological productivity and DOE/EPA Climate Wise Pilot Program in 14 States. 1995 DENR: Climate Wise for North Carolina State Energy Div./SEO Administered deliberate reporting of nursery gasses. No accomplishment on State subsidizing Climate Wise working with industry surpassed arrangement.

Slide 4

Past 2000/01 Climate Wise test case project finished, got to be Energy Star, Climate Leaders, proceeded with VRGG . June 2002: State cut bolster, wiped out system. 39 offices left in mid reporting. Shelter proceeded with 2001 YE All organizations said they needed to proceed with and support. Nov. 2002: DOE, EPA, USDA, DOC workshop

Why - GWI Recommendations to consolidate as non-benefit, non-government, 501(c)3. State can just utilize charge dollars in-state Many establishments, gifts, gifts can not go to state or government associations, must be 501(c)3 State monies go all over to match spending plan, not sufficiently stable for a manageable system State and Federal associations can give finances straightforwardly to a 501(c)3 association A blend of awards, establishment, private, organization, participation backing is the most ideal approach to maintain an association. Jan. 2003: GWI Incorporated, 501(c)3 N.C. Drives Nation in Industrial Registry of GHG in 2000, (Also,2001,and 2002) 2003: “GWI North Carolina Climate Change Registry”, two redesigns in 2004. 2003: GWI Home Page: www.gwi-nc.org

Slide 6

Why - GWI EPA & DOE allowed GWI same rights as Climate Wise through VRGG, Industrial Technology, Climate Vision, Climate Leaders, Waste Wise. Atmosphere Leaders & Waste Wise approved GWI to report their GHG data to VRGG. VRGG obliges element wide reporting, multi state reporting that couldn’t be done under a state just program. GWI reported VRGG improvement status to the WEEC in Atlanta in 2003 and DOE has given PPt presentation to GWI to present in Austin, Sept.2004. GWI given same benefits as a noteworthy organization with numerous offices, GWI speaks to 22 partnerships with 40+ offices. GWI is an aggregator of DOE and EPA information. GWI speaks to North Carolina as a main state in VRGG.

Slide 7

Present 2003 FY VRGG for 40+ offices. Corporate Energy Management Plan. GWI’s N.C. Environmental Change Registry upgrades. Projections for N.C. reporting for 2003 & 2004. Government deliberate reporting registry help. Proposing activities for N.C. identified with GHG. Instructing N.C. Lawmakers on GHG alternatives. Instructing the general population on GHG recommendations being considered by people and offices in N.C. Attempting to unite the invested individuals identified with reporting, enlisting, and exchanging of GHG.

Slide 18

VRGG Program Background Required by Section 1605(b) of the Energy Policy Act of 1992 – (a.k.a. – “1605b Program”) DOE Establishes a Public Record of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Reductions, & Commitments Accepts a Broad Range of Actions as Reportable Flexible Program to Encourage Participation Reports are Self-affirmed First Data Submitted in 1994

Slide 19

What We Were Directed to Do by President Bush 2-14-2 Directed the Secretary of Energy, in discussion with the Secretary of Commerce, the Secretary of Agriculture, and the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, to propose changes to the current 1605(b) willful emanations decrease enrollment program. These changes will improve estimation precision, unwavering quality, and undeniable nature , working with and considering developing local and universal methodologies. Set up a U.S. Objective to lessen GHG force by 18% by 2012.

Slide 20

What We Were Directed to Do Directed the Secretary of Energy to prescribe changes to guarantee that organizations and people that enroll decreases are not punished under a future atmosphere approach, and to give transferable credits to organizations that can demonstrate genuine discharges diminishments. Support Financial Incentives, Directed the Secretary of Agriculture, in counsel with the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy, to create bookkeeping standards and rules for crediting sequestration ventures , considering developing residential and worldwide methodologies. Tested organizations to make a move.

Slide 21

Objectives for Revising 1605(b) Strive for exactness, straightforwardness, consistency, fulfillment. Parity thoroughness with common sense; stringency with adaptability. Perceive elements that add to the President\'s objective of diminishing the discharges power of the U.S. economy; Encourage correspondents – especially those with expansive emanations – to give a more exact, predictable, and complete record of discharges and outflow diminishments. Make a focal system for recording accomplishments connected with deliberate outflow diminishment projects, for example, Climate Leaders and Climate VISION.

Slide 22

Why Do People Report? Increase Public Recognition for Environmental Stewardship Establish a Public Record of Achievement Gain Experience in Calculating, Reporting, and Registering Greenhouse Gas Emissions Gain Knowledge of Innovative Technologies to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions Learn GHG Accounting Issues and exchanging open doors

Slide 23

Proposals for the State of North Carolina Support GWI, a set up project performing most GHG issues from the province to the living arrangement. Build up a “Climate Change Review Commission” or subsection of ERC with SEO, DENR, Environmental Defense, Global Warming Initiatives, and so forth. Preparing in arrangement for Cap & Trade (Chicago Climate Exchange, and so on. Empower Climate Leaders, Waste Wise, Energy Star, ICLEI, Cities/Counties for Climate Protection,etc. Statewide Awareness Campaign Incentives, Recognition, Penalties
