Project Finance Model Template for a Biomass Thermal Power Plant – the Financial Worksheet

Your energy technology selection and project finance modeling expert has just developed a powerful and understandable template for the construction of a project finance model based on an existing ERC (Energy Regulatory Commission) project finance model for renewable energy power projects (e.g. biomass thermal, solar PV, wind, mini-hydro, ocean thermal energy conversion), which was also modified for non-RE power generation technologies such as coal thermal, oil genset, oil thermal, gas thermal, gas combined cycle gas turbine or CCGT, open cycle gas  turbine or OCGT, large hydro, petcoke thermal, combined heat and power (CHP) diesel engine genset (diesel, bunker), gasoline engine genset and OCGT (propane, natural gas), and nuclear power.

CDM Biomass Gasification 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.

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 »

The Paradigm Shift from Nuclear Energy to Renewable Energy – the Fukushima debacle

April 16th, 2011 4 Comments   Posted in nuclear energy and power

The Paradigm Shift from Nuclear Energy to Renewable Energy – the Fukushima debacle

The recent nuclear meltdown incident in one of the 15th largest nuclear power plant in the world as a result of a sequence of events starting with an Intensity 9.0 earthquake that initiated a 10-15 meter tsunami wave within minutes (leaving little time for safe evacuation in spite of adequate tsunami warning by civil and military authorities) that engulfed as far as 10-20 kilometers inland along the flat lands of northeastern Japan, and in the process destroying buildings, roads, bridges, flinging ships inland and disabling the backup diesel generation system of the Fukushima nuclear power plant.

There are newspaper accounts that the earthquake isolated the Fukushima nuclear power plant from the grid, and with a non-operable backup diesel generation backstopped only by an 8-hour battery pack, the world was indeed very close to a China-syndrome type nuclear power plant meltdown. Only the timely use of seawater pumped using crude methods to cool the reactor core and the spent fuel pool prevented a full meltdown. Up to now, the nuclear power plant operator has not succeeded in stabilizing the cooling water system and has relied on pumping and spraying sea water over the damaged nuclear reactors and exposed spent fuel rod cooling pools, leading to leakage of hot radioactive and contaminated sea water into the sea thru the minute cracks on the reactor building’s damage floors.

Feed-in Tariff Models for Renewable Energy – biomass, cogen, mini-hydro, wind, solar and ocean thermal (OTEC)

Renewable energy feed-in tariffs for biomass, biomass cogen, mini-hydro or run-of-river hydro, wind, solar PV and ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) have been calculated using a project finance model prepared for the National Renewable Energy Board (NREB) by Marcial Ocampo – your favorite energy technology expert.

Using standard assumptions of supplier FOB, the all-in capital cost is calculated.  The summary sheet of the model then summarizes the assumptions and results.

New Summary Report Format for Project Finance Model for Feed-in Tariff

April 22nd, 2010 1 Comment   Posted in feed-in tariff

New Summary Report Format for Project Finance Model for Feed-in Tariff

A new and improved summary report format for the state-of-the-art project finance model has been developed and ready for implementation in all small scale, large scale and renewable energy project finance models.

Please refer to the sample format below and the author would appreciate receiving your valuable feedback.

Two formats are available: one for renewable energy projects without fuel requirement (mini-hydro, wind, solar) and those with fuels (biomass, cogen and other fossil-fired power plants such as diesel, coal, oil and natural gas).

This is to enable presentation of the plant heat rate and conversion efficiency from fuel energy to electrical energy as well as lube oil consumption rate.

Free Trial of Project Finance Model for Renewable Energy Feed-in Tariff Calculation
The energy expert and author of this blog is inviting his dedicated viewers to email him or comment on this blog.

The first 20 viewers who will email him for the next 48 hours starting this day of March 25, 2010 at 24:00 hours (12 midnight) Philippine Time will receive a demo copy of his famous project finance models for calculating feed-in tariff.  If he is satisfied, he may order the working copy by proceeding to the DONATE button or to the ENERGY DATA page of his blog.

Feed-in tariff is a regulatory mechanism developed to encourage the development and growth of Renewable Energy by encouraging RE power generation technologies such as biomass energy, mini-hydro, wind, solar and ocean energy.

It is a fixed tariff calculated using the discounted cash flow internal rate of return (DCF IRR) which compares the equity portion (usually 30%) of the all-in project cost (land, equipment, project development, working capital, interest during construction) to the expected net cash flow.

It is usually a fixed tariff for a minimum period of 15 years that allows the RE developer to recover the cost of capital (equity and debt), allowable generation cost, and provide reasonable profit at the minimum equity returns needed by investors.

What are you waiting for.  Email me now and be the among the lucky first 20 viewers to receive the demo copy.
