CDM Wind Model2.xls

In addition to the worksheets found in the ADV models of the regulator, 5 additional tabs or worksheets have been added (Capex, Opex, Revenues, Project IRR and Sensitivity) into the CDM model which is a financial evaluation without taxes (that distort the economic and technical performance) and debt (pure equity investment). For the RE project to benefit from CDM credits, the project IRR should not be more than 15% p.a.

Wind energy is most available in countries within the 40 deg North latitude and 40 deg South latitude. It can be harnessed using giant wind turbines that when connected together in a wind farm can provide utility scale capacities of 2.0 MW per turbine and with 15 turbines, could produce 30 MW of power in a given wind farm.

Solar energy is most available in countries near the equator. It can be harnessed using photo voltaic panels that when connected together in arrays can provide utility scale capacities of 5 MW modules and with 2 modules, could produce 10 MW of power in a given site. More »

For the RE project to benefit from CDM credits, the project IRR should not be more than 15% p.a.

Mini-hydro or run-of-river system is carried out mostly in the mountains where a slowly snaking terrain will lend itself to conveying the water via a canal headrace with minimal head loss and then dropping the water head thru the penstock to the power turbines and exiting to the tailrace to rejoin the river flow. As such, it does not need a dam but rather a diversion weir to divert water to the canal headrace. More »

Biomass gasification system is carried out mostly in the countryside where biomass is abundant from agricultural activity such as paddy rice, corn fields, cotton fields, sugar cane fields, tree plantation and municipal solid waste (MSW). A 400 mt/day of MSW could support around 28.5 MW of biomass gasification power plant. More »

Direct combustion of biomass system (furnace, boiler, steam turbine, generator) is carried out mostly in the countryside where biomass is abundant from agricultural activity such as paddy rice, corn fields, cotton fields, sugar cane fields, tree plantation and municipal solid waste (MSW). A 50-km radius of agricultural land can support around 6-12 MW of biomass power plant as in the case of India. More »

It can be harnessed using giant wind turbines that when connected together in a wind farm can provide utility scale capacities of 2.0 MW per turbine and with 15 turbines, could produce 30 MW of power in a given wind farm.

This MTO first-year tariff for wind makes use of the basic assumptions of the country’s RE regulator for rated capacity (30 MW), capacity factor (25.8%), plant own use (5%), and transmission line loss (3%). More »

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion or OTEC is most adapted in deep waters near the equator where the temperature difference between the surface (30 deg Celsius) and a depth of 1 km (10 deg Celsius) located within 10 km from the shoreline.

This 20 deg Celsius thermal gradient is available throughout the year near the equator and diminishes up to 40 deg North latitude and South latitude, beyond which the OTEC is not technically viable for having a much lower thermal gradient. This provides a very high capacity factor of 91% and it only unavailable when it de-couples during a tropical storm and the OTEC power barge transfers to a safer cove to ride the storm.

This MTO first-year tariff model for OTEC makes use of the basic assumptions of the country’s RE regulator for rated capacity (80 MW), capacity factor (91%), plant own use (36%), and transmission line loss (1.82%). More »
