An Innovative Decision Support Tool for Evaluating Energy Efficiency Opportunities in Cities

Tool for Rapid Assessment of City Energy ( TRACE )







Developed by Energy Efficient Cities Initiatives (EECI), Energy Sector Management Assistance Program, The World Bank Ranjan Bose, Senior Energy Specialist ESMAP , World Bank , Washington , DC , USA

TRACE is........
“ …a practical tool for conducting rapid assessment of energy use in cities, that identifies and prioritizes sectors, and suggests specific energy efficiency interventions… ”
ØA benchmark - based tool for assessing energy efficiency of key municipal services – buildings, transport, public lighting, water/wastewater, power/heating, and solid waste ØA process for prioritizing sectors that offer the greatest actionable EE potential ØA playbook of tried and tested municipal EE interventions

The Tool evaluates energy efficiency opportunities under direct municipal government control

TRACE’s role
What it does:
 

What it doesn’t do:

Focused on City Budget and areas of City government influence Sensitive to user-City Context Not too data- and cost-intensive Simple and practical diagnostic tool

      

Eradicate human error Analyze specific issues Perform a detailed energy audit Target the private sector
 

Big-picture analysis based on available data and interviews
 

Basic strategy for choosing and pursuing solutions

TRACE Process Overview
Energy efficiency measures across all 6 sectors


Filtering process

Benchmarking + city contextual information

Priority sectors

Module in TRACE and more detailed city information
Final energy efficiency recommendations

TRACE Architecture

28 KPIs are Used in TRACE

Benchmarking Cities
60 cities representing a cross section of Population, Climate and Level of Development


Benchmarking Results
.......where can the greatest performance gains be made?

Prioritizing Sectors

Priority 1 Priority 4

Priority 2 Priority 3 Priority 5

Recommendation Appraisal
As part of recommendation appraisal process, the City Authority’s “capacity to act” is rated on five factors:
 §Finance §Human Resources §Assets/Infras tructure §Policy/Regulation/ Enforcement §Data/Information

Recommendations Matrix

TRACE Output
Practical and specific recommendations on EE improvements
ØCost savings potential ØImplementation constraints ØSynergy/opportunities

TRACE with city baseline data/indicators can be used by City Authorities for future M&E of urban energy systems A comprehensive urban energy report focusing on municipal services

Key Findings
high city-wide electricity use per capita; high city-wide water consumption and disproportionately high electricity consumption for water pumping; high city-wide utilization of public transport but equally growing ownership and use of private motor vehicles, resulting in higher operating energy intensity for mobility; high city-wide electricity use on public lighting; very high consumption of electricity in municipal buildings.

Areas for Intervention
 Potable Water
 Active Water System Leak Detection and Pressure Management  Improve Efficiency of Water Pumps and Motors  Water Efficient Fixtures and Fittings

 Transport
 Public Transport Development  Municipal and City Bus Fleet Efficiency  Traffic Flow Optimization

 Buildings
 Mandating Building Energy Efficiency Codes for New Buildings  Municipal office Audit and Retrofit Program

Public Lighting
 Street lighting timing system  Street lighting audit and retrofit

… for each area there are number of good practice case studies built in TRACE
