3 L’Economia del Futuro Sarà Verde 2030Source: Bloomberg New Energy FinanceInvestimenti globali attesi in energia pulitaBillions of U.S. Dollars6005004003002001002005201020152020Millions of U.S. DollarsInvestimenti in efficienza energetica degli edifici1,2001,000800600400200Source: Cleantech Group, LLC- Analysis by International Energy Agency showed that over the past three years, annual investments in low-carbon energy technologiesaveraged approximately USD 165 billion. Implementing a scenario with strong support for a low carbon future would require investments to reach approximately USD 750 billion per year by 2030 and rise to over USD 1.6 trillion per year from 2030 to The level of investment doubles in the latter period as a result of increased demand for cars and other consumer products, which rises alongside incomes in emerging and developing countries.--L’economia americana del futuro sarà… a basse emissioni di CO2.-- Larry Summers, Chief Economic Adviser del Presidente3
4 Che cos’è di preciso la Green Economy? Primo, fattori causali … Harmful effects of carbon in atmosphere on climate (greenhouse effect) and increasing fossil fuel prices are causing people to look for ways to reduce carbon emissions. The demand for low carbon technologies is creating a market for alternative energy sources and technologies that reduce consumption of (fossil-based/dirty) energy.Although desire for low carbon is driving demand, that’s not the goal of green economic development.Larry Summers quote:"The rebuilt American economy must be more export-oriented and less consumption-oriented, more environmentally oriented and less fossil-energy-oriented, more bio- and software-engineering-oriented and less financial-engineering-oriented, more middle-class-oriented and less oriented to income growth that disproportionately favors a very small share of the population."Riscaldamento globale e inquinamentoPrezzi elevati dei combustibili fossiliDomanda di prodotti ecosostenibiliDomanda di generazione di energia pulitaDomanda di prodotti che riducono i consumi energeticiDomanda di prodotti che riducono l’inquinamentoLa domanda di tecnologie a basse emissioni di CO2 sta trainandola crescita del settore Green Tech.

13 Esempio: Inserirsi nella filiera “verde” Automotive industry supplier won a 5-year, $7 million contract to produce gearbox housings for Clipper WindpowerOpened 42,000 square-foot facility, purchased new equipmentAnticipated hiring 20 new workers to keep up with demandCompany based in Commerce Township, MI; new facility in nearby Wixom, MISpent $7.5 million on new milling and turning machines, $2.5 million on pair of 30-ton cranes. New facility and equipment will enable company to machine parts more quickly.Gearbox housingsNew 42,000 sq foot facilityUn fornitore automobilistico ha creato una linea di campane del cambio per produttori di energia eolica.
14 Esempio: Scoprire un mercato emergente Oregon Iron Works (OIW)Welding and fabrication shop since 1945Entered industries including defense, nuclear, streetcars and ocean wave energy systemSubsidiary company United Streetcar recently became the only streetcar producer in the U.S.Poised to meet growing demand for streetcars across county, allowing them to hire many more workers.OIW began as a traditional welding and fabrication shop in 1945, with a focus on the hydroelectric, bridge and civil construction industries. Since then they have entered numerous industries, from defense to nuclear to more recently streetcars and ocean wave energy systems.OIW has proven itself able to adapt its technologies to new products.The company has successfully diversified and expanded into new markets, going from 12 employees and $850,000 in sales in 1975 to 400 employees and $120 million in sales in 2009.Subsidiary company United Streetcar recently became only streetcar manufacturer in U.S – how they did it:Recognized the voidWhen OIW VP Chandra Brown heard that Portland imported streetcars for its system from the Czech Republic (a company called Skoda) because there were no domestic suppliers, she realized her company could fill the void.Solicited help from the governmentReached out to city and county officials who in turn helped them contact their congressional delegation to request a $4 million appropriation to build a prototype streetcar, which they were granted.Obtained an exclusive license to manufacture and sell the Skoda streetcars in the U.S., rather than designing their own car from scratch.Saved time and money, especially because OIW is primarily a manufacturer and not a designerAdapted existing technologies to build the streetcar.The prototype car successfully passed all tests and is ready for market.United Streetcar is now poised to meet the demand for streetcars across the country.Several cities across the United States are developing streetcar systemswhich, as a form of public transit, promote location efficiency and reduce carbon emissions from carsUnited Streetcar has a contract to build six more cars for Portland, OR and seven cars for Tuscon, AZ.OIW hired 20 additional workers for streetcar production, and with the capacity to make streetcars annually, they may be able to hire up to 300 new employees as more orders come in.Additionally, the streetcars are made up of parts from 100+ vendors who may see an uptick in business and employment due to the streetcar marketOIW has a knack for identifying a niche, figuring out how to build it, and then spreading the story. They have also been very successful partnering with the government.Una ditta metalmeccanica ha creato nuove linee di prodotti nei settoridei tram e dell’energia dal moto ondoso.
15 Esempio: Ridurre l’inquinamento trasformando i rifiuti in profitto Wood scrapsBiomass PowerFirst example – waste to energyWood scraps fuel for biomass power plantsSecond exampe – by-product synergy, waste to profitCompany A’s waste (in this case non-recyclable plastic) Company B’s product (in this case plastic curb stop)Photos based on example of Curb Appeal and Baxter Healthcare, among other companies in Chicago Waste to Profit NetworkCurb Appeal Story:SUMMARY Curb Appeal Materials uses unrecyclable plastics from Baxter Healthcare, computer casings from the City of Chicago Household Hazardous Waste and Computer Recycling Facility and paint buckets from Sherwin Williams in the construction of curb stops. The curb stops are in turn installed at Network member facilities using Cook Composites and Polymers , the City of Chicago Department of Fleet Management and the Chicago Center for Green Technology. ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED Curb Appeal Materials Baxter Healthcare Sherwin Williams Cook Composites and Polymers Department of Fleet Management Chicago Center for Green Technology WASTE INVOLVED Unrecyclable plastic (mixed, contaminated plastic) In general, it is not economically viable to separate and recycle mixed and contaminated plastics in the United States. Network member, Curb Appeal Materials, developed a technology to recycle mixed and contaminated plastics into an extrudable building material suitable for numerous applications. With this innovative technology developed and market ready, Curb Appeal was seeking new sourcing and market opportunities for its application. THE WASTE TO PROFIT CONNECTION Chicago Waste to Profit Team Members identified sources of mixed and contaminated plastics at Baxter Healthcare and Sherwin Williams and combined them with recycled computer casings collected from Chicago citizens at the City of Chicago’s Household Hazardous Chemical and Computer Recycling Facility. The City of Chicago and Cook Composites and Polymers purchased curb stops made from the extruded materials and Sherwin Williams requested a sound wall to enclose prohibitively loud equipment on the factory floor. This effectively closed an industrial loop by productively reusing waste generated by these facilities at those same facilities. ACHIEVEMENTS15 Tons of plastic waste diverted from landfill to date; likely 50+ additional tons will be diverted from spin-off projectsNew standards established for City Department procurementCO2 diverted by use of low energy recycling into new material as opposed to landfillPotential for jobs to be created as business growsClosed loop life cycle for previously non-recyclable plasticsWasteNew ProductUsi alternativi dei rifiuti creano opportunità per nuove vendite e prodotti.

28 Sostenibilità: Un bene per tutte le aziende Cost SavingsResilienceBrandingCut CostsEnergy savings from efficiency measuresSavings from reuse and reduction of materialsRegulatory RequirementsAvoid finesCompany ImageCustomers increasingly expect sustainabilityDistinguish company from competitionResilienceLess subject to fluctuations in energy pricesThe point about distinguishing company from competition may be especially relevant for components suppliers because the companies they are supplying to likely have an especially high desire to have the greenest product they can not just once it’s in use (creating renewable energy, for example) but through the whole supply chain. For example, a wind turbine producer whose primary motivation for going into the wind business is to reduce carbon emissions is unlikely to want parts that were produced with a lot of emissionsImages:Liability AvoidanceOperare in modo ecosostenibile fa bene ai profitti.
