"other than alcohols" derived from "biological materials;" electricity, or any other fuel determined tobe "substantially not petroleum" and yielding "substantial energy security benefits and substantialenvironmental benefits."ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLE (AFV) -- motor vehicles that run on fuels other than petroleum-based fuels. As defined by the National Energy Policy Act (EPAct), this excludes reformulatedgasoline as an alternative fuel.AMBIENT -- The surrounding atmosphere; encompassing on all sides; the environment surroundinga body but undisturbed or unaffected by it.ANSI -- American National Standards Institute is the national organization that coordinatesdevelopment and maintenance of consensus standards and sets rules for fairness in theirdevelopment. ANSI also represents the USA in developing international standards.ANCILLARY SERVICES -- The services other than scheduled energy that are required to maintainsystem reliability and meet WSCC/NERC operating criteria. Such services include spinning, non-spinning, and replacement reserves, voltage control, and black start capability.AMPERE (Amp) -- The unit of measure that tells how much electricity flows through a conductor. It islike using cubic feet per second to measure the flow of water. For example, a 1,200 watt, 120-volthair dryer pulls 10 amperes of electric current (watts divided by volts).ANGLE OF INCIDENCE -- The angle that the sun's rays make with a line perpendicular to a surface.The angle of incidence determines the percentage of direct sunshine intercepted by a surface.ANNUAL MAXIMUM DEMAND -- The greatest of all demands of the electrical load which occurredduring a prescribed interval in a calendar year.ANIMAL WASTE CONVERSION -- Process of obtaining energy from animal wastes. This is a type ofbiomass energy.AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) -- A measure of heating efficiency, in consistent units,determined by applying the federal test method for furnaces. This value is intended to represent theratio of heat transferred to the conditioned space by the fuel energy supplied over one year. [SeeCalifornia Code of Regulations, Title 20, Section 1602(d)(1)]ANTHRACITE -- Hard coal, found deep in the earth. It burns very hot, with little flame. It usually hasa heating value of 12,000-15,000 British thermal units (Btus) per pound.
