Optimal Design of 900 kW Mapanuepe Lake Mini-Hydro Power Project for the San Marcelino, Zambales Municipal Government

May 1, 2012 – June 30, 2012 (prepared cost estimate and financial model)

I have a toolbox for plotting the dam, settling basin, headrace, forebay, surge tank, penstock, power turbine, power house, tailrace, sub-station, transmission line and access road using Google Earth and verified by actual survey by a Geodetic Engineer. I then use my mini-hydro design toolbox to determine the dimensions (depth, width at bottom, width at top, radius, diameter) of each component to deliver the required water flow given the slope and type of headrace (rectangular concrete, trapezoidal concrete, circular concrete pipe and circular GRP pipe).

The dimensions are inputs to my cost estimation toolbox to estimate the base cost and escalated cost when constructed in the future. The all-in capital cost includes the equipment cost, ocean freight and insurance, duties and taxes, local transport, installation cost, civil works, project development costs, working capital, and financing charges (legal and loan arranger fees, commitment fees, interest during construction). The cost estimate then goes to my project finance model to determine the equity and project returns given the first year tariff (feed-in-tariff), or alternatively, calculate the first year tariff needed to meet the minimum equity and project returns. The model also prepares the income statement, balance sheet, cash flow, and levelized cost breakdown.

Wind-Diesel Hybrid Power Generation (WHyPGen) Marketing Development Initiatives

August 23-September 29, 2010 (Jakarta,Indonesia) – finalized project document and CEO endorsement

International Technical Consultant (ITC) – Renewable Energy Project Development Expert, who will lead a Project Development Team of over 5 Indonesian National Technical Consultants (NTCs) that is tasked to design and develop GEF Renewable Energy Project specifically on Wind-Diesel Hybrid Power Generation (WHyPGen). The output is the final version of the Project Document (ProDoc) and the CEO Endorsement Request (CER).  A total of 17 wind sites and 12 wind turbine manufacturers/models were analyzed to arrive at the annual power generation and capacity factors of the wind turbines.  The diesel generation is likewise calculated by difference from demand of the nearby grid (on-grid and off-grid remote areas) leading to annual power generation and capacity factor of the peaking load and base load diesel units.  The wind turbine is expected to displace 15% of the peak demand of the grid. The peaking and base load diesel units will carry the remaining 85% of the peak demand of the grid, and shall be loaded not more than 50% and 75% for the peaking and base load diesel units, respectively.  The total capacities and capacity factors are then fed to the project finance models to determine the all-in project cost and starting electricity tariff (feed-in tariff for wind, tariff for diesel).  The wind turbine model that provides the lowest wind tariff is the optimal model for the wind site. Finally, the GHG emission reduction arising from the wind turbine is calculated for the nearby grid and the national grid to determine its climate change impact.

Energy Consultant – Liquid Fuels & Fuel Additives

Octagon Chem Oil Corporation

May 22, 2007 to December 31, 2007 – Completed

This project involves the provision of Combustion & Energy expertise with economic & financial analysis in order to promote the use of an aqua bio-fuel additive developed by a Japanese Inventor that will allow the blending of water with diesel oil and fuel oil (bunker fuel and low sulfur fuel oil).  The addition of bio-fuel additive will reduce emissions of SO2 and CO2 and raise combustion efficiency due to the enhanced atomization of the fuel due to the rapid volume expansion of liquid water into vapor.  The end result is an environmental-friendly and energy-efficient fuel mix that reduces the cost of generating electricity when used in diesel engine generators and cost of steam when used in diesel-fired or bunker-fired steam boilers.  The Consultant prepared the testing procedure and calculation sheets for determining combustion efficiency, generator efficiency, boiler efficiency, flue gas emission in general, emission of SO2 and CO2 per kg of steam or kWh of electricity, and fuel cost per kg of steam or kWh of electricity.  The fuel additives are presently undergoing joint evaluation and review by DOST, DOE and DENR as part of the DOE registration process for fuel additives in the Philippines.

    Biodiesel is a fuel that is made from soy beans, or waste vegetable oil(cooking oil). It can be used in place of petroleum diesel fuel for vehicles or heating oil for buildings. Unlike petroleum diesel, biodiesel is a renewable resource, and it creates less pollution than petroleum diesel. It can be used alone or in combination with petroleum diesel, or with heating oil. Generally, no expensive modifications to the engines are required. This makes it easier to integrate biodiesel into current systems than other alternative energy sources, which often require new equipment. ‘
