CURRICULUM VITAE of MARCIAL T. OCAMPO
Marcial Ocampo is a local and international expert and consultant on Energy & Climate Change. He is also an energy technology selection and business development expert and has prepared many feasibility studies on both conventional (oil, coal, natural gas) and renewable energy (biomass, mini-hydro, solar PV and wind). He has prepared a complete line of project finance models for almost all power generation technologies to calculate its long-run marginal running cost (LRMC) which is also known as the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) as well as first year tariff (also called feed-in-tariff for renewable energy). He also applies linear programming techniques in optimizing the configuration of co-generation and tri-generation systems (power, process heat, space cooling) and power plant dispatch to arrive at optimal power generation mix. He is also an expert in oil price calculations and tariff calculations which could be applied to renewable energy feed-in-tariff, conventional energy and electricity tariff as well as water distribution tariff.

Modeling Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) Impact on Renewable Energy Economics
Your energy technology expert has updated its project finance models for renewable energy.
It now includes standard clean development mechanism (CDM) modeling to determine the economic impact of including carbon emission reduction (CER) credits to the overall economics of renewable energy sources (biomass cogeneration, biomass direct combustion, biomass gasification, solar PV, wind, mini-hydro, ocean thermal energy conversion).
CDM modeling consists of running a project finance model to determine pre-tax net cash flow without escalation and with full equity (project IRR). The model, however, has the option to include cheaper debt. More »
