  1. Tribal Energy ConnectionHarvesting Clean Energy ConferenceDirelle R. Calica, J.D., ATNI Energy Advisordirelle@scdprofessionals.com (971) 255-1404

  2. Energy Development for Tribes • Exercise of Tribal Sovereignty • Develop comprehensive and strategic planning for energy resources • Develop chosen energy projects and resources • Develop training, employment opportunities, economic development and community development that enhance self determination • Develop tribal resources for the social, economic, and cultural well-being of tribes

  3. Overview- Energy Assets • Water and Energy • Forests and Energy • Land and Energy • Housing and Energy • Sustainability • Economic & Business Development

  4. Connecting Tribal Resources

  5. Tribal Utility Formation Is an important element of tribal sovereignty Includes, electrical, water, telecommunications, etc. Mechanism for dealing with surrounding utilities, federal and state agencies, and the tribal community as well Tribal utility formation rely on the overall goals of the Tribe regarding utility and energy interests. Formation of a tribal utility requires long-term commitment

  6. “The Grid” “The Grid” is: *Owned by over 500 companies (mostly utilities). The companies are owned by different governments, shareholders or power users. *Operated by utilities cooperating with their neighboring utilities or Independent System Operators. *“Regulated” by multiple agencies of 2 countries, states, provinces, tribes, councils, boards, and committees. *Paid for by users.

  11. “New” Technology & New Thinking Impacting Transmission Planning • “Green Power” Lines: • Assessing the State of Wind Energy in Wholesale Electric Markets - December 2004 (AD04-13) • Interconnection Queuing Practices - Docket No. AD08-2-000 March 20, 2008 • CAISO, Declaratory Order regarding location-constrained resources - Docket No. EL07-33-000 April 19, 2007 • Smart Grid: Title XIII of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007- applies digital technologies to the grid. • Non-wires solutions: See BPA Website: http://www.transmission.bpa.gov/PlanProj/Non-Wires_Round_Table/default.cfm?page=nwsub • Wind IntegrationOrder No. 661-A, "Interconnection for Wind Energy" - Appendix G to Order No. 2003, December 12, 2005 • Underwater transmission • Distributed generation: See DOE report: The Potential Benefits of Distributed Generation and Rate-related Issues That May Impede Their Expansion • Demand Response: • Section 1252(e)(3) of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 required the FERC to prepare a report by appropriate region, that assesses electric demand response resources, including those available from all consumer classes. • Section 529 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 requires FERC to complete a National Assessment of Demand Response.

  12. Planning is Regional/Sub-regional • Western Interconnection Example: Western Electric Coordinating Council (WECC) • WECC awarded $14.5m from DOE under ARRA to conduct interconnection-wide transmission planning studies. • Activities managed by Transmission Expansion Planning Policy Committee (TEPPC) • TEPPC Recognized Sub-regional Planning Groups: • (Source: Jeff Miller, ColumbiaGrid) • TEPPC Committees: • SPSC (State/Provincial Steering Group) • SPSG (Scenario Planning Steering Group)* • SCG (Sub-regional Coordination Group) *Tribal Representative (TBD) Added
