Geothermal Project Finance Model Template (Financials Tab) – free demo

This is the latest project finance model template (financials tab or worksheet) that your energy technology selection expert has developed for the geothermal power generation technology using energy stored on the earth’s crust. Familiarize with the template and if interested, get the full unlocked version for your immediate use. I can also provide data input service or customize further the model.

Energy stored on the earth’s crust during its creation, and its continued regeneration from nuclear reactions inside the earth to heat water that percolates into the earth’s crust is a continuing source of saturated and superheated steam which can be used to drive steam turbines in single and double flash steam cycles (but releasing the spent geothermal steam to the atmosphere), or using a binary fluid to capture the heat from geothermal fluids without the attendant problem of treating the spent geothermal fluid other than re-injecting it back to mother earth in an end-less cycle.

The project finance model contains the following worksheets, including the Financials template for developing your own financial model:

1) Cover sheet

2) Inputs & Assumptions (model inputs and summary outputs)

3) Tariff Breakdown summary

4) Sensitivity Analysis (contains tax and incentives regime table and sensitivity run summary)

5) Construction Period calculations

6) Operating Period calculations

7) Financials summary

8) Asset Base FIT calculation

The complete template is found in the Financials worksheet and contains the step-by-step calculations done in a project finance model. It contains the following major sections:

a) Income statement

b) Retained Earnings and Capital

c) Base Construction Cost Breakdown (and projected cost breakdown if construction and commercial operation is delayed)

d) Funds Drawdown and Financing Cost during Construction

e) Sources and Uses of Funds During Construction in US$

f) Sources and Uses of Funds During Construction in Local Currency

g) Evolution of Balance Sheet Accounts (receivables, payables, inventory, input VAT, output VAT, acquisition of capital costs of depreciable and non-depreciable items, debt and equity drawdown, local debt and foreign debt amortization schedule, debt service reserve fund, recovery of VAT on imported equipment, monetization of initial working capital at end of life)

h) Cash Flow statement (from operations, investing and financing, net cash flow for period, beginning and ending balances)

i) Balance sheet (assets, liabilities, equity)

j) Equity returns (IRR, NPV, PAYBACK) – e.g. 30% equity and 70% debt

k) Project returns (IRR, NPV, PAYBACK) – e.g. 100% equity and 0% debt

l) Levelized Tariff and Generation Cost

m) Levelized Cost Breakdown of Electricity Price

n) Debt Service Cover Ratio (DSCR)

o) Benefits and Costs Analysis Ratio (B/C Ratio)

p) Financial Ratios (liquidity ratios, solvency ratios or leveraged ratios, efficiency ratios, profitability ratios, and market prospect ratios)
