Title: RP-5 RENEWABLE ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROJECT

This is the third quarterly technical report for the RP-5 Renewable Energy Efficiency Project. The report summarizes the work progress, effort and activities that took place during the period of January 1, 2003 to March 31, 2003. The report has been prepared in accordance with the Department of Energy (DOE) Guidelines. This technical report covers all meetings, discussions, and engineering and design activities that took place to complete the conceptual design phase and finalize the scope of work for the project. As indicated in the previous reports, CH2M Hill, the Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) Consultant, is in charge of the analysis and evaluation of the innovative equipment and systems for the project. The PIER Consultant has submitted to Inland empire Utilities Agency (IEUA) the draft Conceptual Design Report for review and comments. IEUA has prepared a detailed scope of work for the whole project, which will be used by the consultant as a basis and a reference for submitting their proposal for the engineering and design services. This report also includes engineering work and procurement of vital equipment which is part of the new IEUA Headquarters Building's chilled water system. IEUA has performed a detailed technical and economical analysismore » to evaluate several potential options and scenarios for the configuration of the power generation equipment and systems for the project. Other activities in this report include meeting with Ormat, the manufacturer and potential supplier of the innovative organic bottoming cycle, which operates on heat recovered from engines exhaust system, to go over their scope of work and evaluate the system for the anticipated plant conditions and configurations.
