Energy Efficiency and Co-Benefits Assessment for Large Industrial Sources - Public Documents

On July 22, 2010, the Air Resources Board (ARB) approved the Energy Efficiency and Co-Benefit Assessment of Large Industrial Facilities (EEA Regulation).  The regulation was approved by the Office of Administrative Law and became effective on July 16, 2011.  The regulation required the largest industrial sources in California to conduct a one-time assessment of fuel and energy consumption, and emissions of greenhouse gas, criteria pollutants, and toxic air contaminants.  Affected facilities were also required to identify potential improvements in equipment, processes, or systems that could result in energy savings.

The Introduction and Summary includes introductory information on the program and a general overview of the data received for the sector.

 " Part I" is a sector-wide summary of all of the energy efficiency improvement projects identified by all of the reporting facilities.  In addition to a brief description of the project, estimates for greenhouse gas, criteria, and toxics pollutant emission reductions and cost information, as reported by the facilities are included.  These data are aggregated in a manner to be consistent with the public disclosure requirements under California Code of Regulations (CCR) 95610. 
"Part II" summarizes refinery-specific information as reported by the facility, again aggregated in manner consistent with the public disclosure requirements under CCR 95610.
