Partner Spotlight: General Motors / GMVM Orion

GPP Program Update 52 – General Motors logoQ. What motivated your organization to use green power?

A. Sustainability is part of GM's business model and core to our operations. We are seizing the opportunity to develop new mobility solutions that lead to a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion. Our customer-driven focus extends to how we build our products and how we serve and improve our communities. We've been using clean energy for decades and remain dedicated to leveraging our global scale to make energy-efficient options more readily available. This decision to use green power has come from the top down, starting with CEO and chairman Mary Barra.

Q. Tell us about your organization’s green power procurement?

A. GM uses a variety of clean energy sources. From wind and solar to renewable thermal, we are working toward a commitment to power all of our operations’ electricity needs worldwide with renewable energy by 2050. In 2016, the company used 199.8 megawatts of green power.

For example, since Orion Assembly received the EPA’s Green Power Leadership Award in 2016, it has continued to use renewable energy sources. Orion leverages landfill gas to heat and cool the facility, and in 2016 the on-site landfill system generated more than 32 million kWh of green power, supplying more than 45 percent of the facility’s annual electricity needs. Orion also houses a 350-kWh solar array. The team there also uses the industry’s first “three-wet” paint process, using only one megawatt hour of energy to paint each vehicle. Orion Assembly is home to the all-electric Chevrolet Bolt EV.

GPP Program Update 52 – Orion AssemblyOrion Assembly, home of the Chevrolet Bolt EV, generates electricity from landfill gas.

Q. Describe any innovative green power strategies your organization has, or is planning to implement.

A. GM plans to reach its 100 percent renewable energy goal through a four-pillar approach: first, by continuing to maximize the energy efficiency of our operations; second, determining the right renewable energy mix for sites; third, by continuing to develop energy storage options, like powering facilities with used electric vehicle batteries; and fourth, leveraging policy to drive scale through new options like green tariffs and renewable energy certificates where needed.

GM helps drive adoption of renewable energy and supports market growth through industry engagement. We support the boards of the American Wind Energy Association and Business Renewables Center, as well as the Solar Energy Industries Association educational advisory board.

GPP Program Update 52 – Renewable Energy PathFrom wind and solar to renewable thermal, GM is working toward its RE100 goal to power all of its operations’ electricity worldwide with renewable energy by 2050.

Q. What do you see as the benefits of using green power and what role does it currently play in your organization's broader business and environmental strategy?

A. GM's renewable energy commitment, along with a pursuit of electrified vehicles and efficient manufacturing, is part of our approach to addressing climate change. We believe the future is electric and are thinking holistically about our product and energy strategies so that cleaner cars drive on a cleaner grid.

Renewable energy use at GM makes business sense. It translates into bottom-line benefits such as lower and more stable energy prices for the long term. We also save money through onsite investments, like building more solar arrays at our plants and facilities.

Q. Does your organization have a green power or emissions reduction goal? If so, what is it and how do you plan to achieve it?

A. GM is committed to reduce both carbon and energy intensity from global manufacturing facilities by 20 percent by 2020 from a 2010 baseline. From 2010 to 2016, we reduced it 15 percent. The installation of 186,000 LED bulbs and fixtures is one of many steps that helped us save $73 million last year. Other tactics employed include skylights, energy management systems and variable-frequency drives on heating and cooling equipment.

Global energy efficiency efforts play a significant part in our RE100 goal, which sets a target for reaching 100% renewable electricity by 2050. This reduces electricity loads, helping us more easily transition to renewable energy sources. Together, these environmental improvements help us reduce our carbon footprint, cut costs and deliver value back to our customers.

Q. What advice would you give to other organizations interested in using green power, and is there anything you would do differently?

A. It's important to collaborate with local utilities, policymakers, government officials, renewable energy developers, technology manufacturers, and other companies and organizations who will help make renewable energy procurement more attainable. This is one of the reasons we're a founding member of the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance, which helps grow corporate demand for renewable power and demonstrates that market demand to utilities. Internally, it's also helpful to drive a culture that enables renewable energy deals to get done. It oftentimes requires a pragmatic approach fulfilled through perseverance and supported by passion for sustainable solutions.

Q. How do you communicate your green power use to consumers, employees, and other stakeholders?

A. We believe in sharing best practices for renewable energy procurement. GM communicates through social media, an annual sustainability report, monthly newsletters, intranet articles, stakeholder outreach, events and speaking opportunities, and through a sustainability blog: generalmotors.green.

Q. How has being an EPA Green Power Partner benefited your organization? Why do you think GPP is a good program to join?

A. As an EPA Green Power Partner, GM has had the opportunity to share with and learn from other organizations striving to meet bold renewable energy goals. Green power ultimately benefits all of us and it's crucial we work together. Through GPP, awareness of green power sources spreads and momentum builds as more companies scale their use.

Highlights from the 2017 Renewable Energy Markets Conference

This year's Renewable Energy Markets conference was held in New York City for the first time in its more than 17-year history and the Big Apple did not disappoint! Of the many important topics discussed at the conference a few stand out as perhaps important or interesting for green power market stakeholders. Organized by CRS and sponsored by the EPA Green Power Partnership, this annual meeting of clean energy stakeholders includes green power providers, utility representatives, purchasers, policymakers, and regional stakeholders, and sets the agenda for the year to come.

The highlights below are only the tip of the iceberg in terms of the depth and breadth of topics discussed at REM 2017. Also announced at this year's conference is the next venue for the Renewable Energy Markets Conference. Hope to see you in Houston in 2018!

A session titled "The Role & Importance of Additionality for Corporate Renewable Energy Procurement" delved into the emphasis placed in the market on the concept of "additionality." At question was whether additionality is an appropriate phase for describing one's impact through REC-substantiated green power and whether green power procurement delivers on what additionality means.  What does this mean for green power consumers? Keep an eye out for additional guidance and papers on how additionality may or may not be the best way to describe the impact of your green power purchase and use.  Several major organizations are working on resources that will be useful in understanding this topic and offer alternative frameworks for how to describe the impact of your green power purchase.

The evolving New York policy environment was also front and center at this year's conference with many panel sessions and hallway discussions diving into the many opportunities and challenges found when a state goes through significant electricity market reforms. From the creation of a new state-level all generation tracking system to how voluntary markets can co-exist alongside state RES/CES requirements, New York is well on its way to transforming its electricity markets. What does this mean for green power consumers?  If your organization operates in New York and is seeking to advance your green power use within the state, be sure to keep abreast of several regulatory proceedings that may have substantive impacts on your green power investments and usage claims as it relates to voluntary market principles. At stake is how the state will account for voluntary market action under its state RES/CES requirements, as currently there is a lack of clarity for whether green power supply in the state will meet the voluntary market regulatory surplus requirement. Green power consumers in New York should also make sure that exclusive ownership and regulatory surplus is achieved when contracting directly with projects or building self-generation.

ISO Standards Under Development for Environmental Management

The International Organization for Standards (ISO) currently has several standards under development as part of the ISO 14000 series of International Standards for environmental management. EPA Green Power Partners may find it important to participate in these standards development processes in order to ensure that the standard aligns with your organizational interests and perspectives. Two particular relevant standards include:

  • The ISO 14064-1 standard is defined as "a specification with guidance at the organization level for quantification and reporting of GHG emissions and removals."
  • The ISO 14067 standard is defined as "a product focused standard pertaining to GHGs and the emissions footprint of products including requirements and guidelines for quantification."

The ISO Working Group (WG) 4 recently held a meeting in China where a temporary consensus was arrived at to include the market-based approach (Scope 2 accounting) under the 14064-1 standard. The original version of the 14064-1 standard had previously prohibited reporting entities from using the market-based approach in addressing Scope 2 emissions. The original version of the ISO 14064-1 standard did not conform to existing WRI Protocol Scope 2 guidance and was in conflict with major registry and reporting requirements used in the U.S. The reintroduction of the market-based reporting method back into the 14064-1 standard was, in part, to ensure that it harmonize with the current version of the ISO 14067 standard, which currently accommodates the market-based approach.

Under ISO WG 8, the ISO 14067 standard focused on product-based emissions quantification is currently open for comment through early December 2017. Organizations are encouraged to participate and submit comments reflective of your organization's perspectives related to the market-based reporting method and quality criteria used under ISO 14067. The WG 8 group plans to meet early next year to review and finalize the standard's content based on comments submitted. ISO has indicated its interest to have its 14000 standards be harmonized in its approach to quantify and report emissions.

Green power partners are encouraged to participate in these important standards development processes. For further information, please see the ISO / TC 207 / SC 07 GHG management and related activities subcommittee webpage. You may also inquire about joining the committee by contacting the ISO helpdesk.
