Attachment KIOWA ENERGY CENTERAdvancing Iowa’s Energy Efficiency andRenewable Energy Use Through Research,Demonstration and Education

Overview of the Iowa EnergyCenterFloyd E. BarwigDirector

BackgroundEst. 1990 by the Iowa Energy Efficiency ActFunded by a surcharge on intra-state electric andnatural gas salesWorking with Iowa’s universities, colleges andprivate nonprofit organizationsAdministered by Iowa State UniversityGuided by a 13-member advisory council

BudgetReceive 85 cents from every 1,000 in intrastate electric andnatural gas utility revenues in IowaOperates under salary cap, currently 769,632Fiscal Year 2005 Budget 3.12 Million52%17%20%11%on grant programson collaborative researchemployee salaries and benefitson operations

Conference & Small DemonstrationGrant OpportunitiesOpen Grant Solicitation ProcessMission-related conference, workshop, seminar,exhibit, demonstration projectMatching funds required up to the maximum grantlimit of 7,500Conducted throughout the state with Iowa’suniversities, colleges, community colleges, andprivate nonprofit organizations

ENERGY RESOURCE STATIONResearching energy performancein buildings with real-time, real-lifesystems.Testing and demonstratingcommercial heating, ventilationand air conditioning, building controls and lighting systems.Saving Iowa building and business owners money and energy byincreasing energy efficiency and through training.

ENERGY RESOURCE STATIONA facility with unequaled capabilitiesFour matched pairs of test rooms are identical in theirconstruction and heating and cooling loads - allowingside-by-side comparison of the systems that control them.

NATIONAL BUILDING CONTROLSINFORMATION PROGRAMEstablished by the Energy Centerwith support from the US EPAFacilitating the adoption ofenergy efficient buildingcontrol products and strategiesTesting, demonstration, education and dissemination ofproduct information

BECONBiomass Energy Conversion FacilityProviding credible,first-hand information onrenewable, biomass-basedfuels and chemicalsInnovation & CollaborationPilot-scale biomass conversion systems

BECONBiodieselAn alternative for diesel fuel isproduced when vegetable oilsand animal fats are mixed withalcohol in this process. Oils fromboth plants and animals - not justsoybeans – can make biodiesel.Alcohol FermentationMicroorganisms convert organicmaterial, such as sweet sorghum orswitchgrass, from one chemical forminto another. The resulting productis purified and used in otherprocesses.

BECONThermal GasificationThis process transforms solidbiomass into gas though partialcombustion in the absence or nearabsence of oxygen. This gas canbe burned in a boiler, internalcombustion engine, fuel cell or anadvanced gas turbine.PyrolysisBiocrude is produced whenbiomass is subject to varyingtemperatures and pressures duringpyrolysis.

BECONBiomass Conversion ProcessesAnaerobic DigestionThe controlled decomposition ofbiomass in an oxygen-freeenvironment produces methane,carbon dioxide and otherchemicals.Supercritical FluidsFluids, when raised to highpressures and temperatures, exhibitunexpected and interestingcapabilities to convert biomass into avariety of chemicals.

BECONMaking a combined biorefinery system possible.The biomass to fuels andchemicals conversionprocesses can becombined to createexciting economicpossibilities for Iowa andenhance operatingefficiencies.
