Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) – Solar Thermal Power Generation Technology Model

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) – Solar Thermal Power Generation Technology Model

Your energy technology selection expert has developed a CSP Project Finance Model for use by CSP project developers.

It can help you prepare the feasibility study and design or optimize the various options to give you the lowest Levelized cost of energy (LCOE).

Given inputs on installed unit capacity, number of units, capacity factor, all-in capital cost $/kW, fixed O&M cost $/kW/year and variable O&M cost $/MWh, you can calibrate the model to meet your annual generation and determine first year tariff, short-run marginal running cost SRMC and long-run marginal running cost LRMC (also known as LCOE).

Steam Cycle and Rankin Cycle Project Finance Model Template (Financials Tab) – free demo

April 17th, 2016 No Comments   Posted in power generation

Steam Cycle and Rankin Cycle 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 steam cycle and Rankin cycle power generation technology using a variable of energy sources and fossil fuels such as  oil thermal (bunker oil) and gas thermal (natural gas). 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.

Among the oldest and most versatile power generation technology is based on the steam cycle, also called the Rankin cycle, which consists of a heating source to convert a liquid such as water into saturated steam or superheated steam to drive a steam turbine, and recover the spent steam in the condenser to be pre-heated in a steam drum and then converted to steam in a boiler and superheated further in the super heater of the Rankin cycle.

Financial Ratios in Project Finance Model Ver. 3.0

April 6th, 2016 No Comments   Posted in financial ratios

Financial Ratios in Project Finance Model Ver. 3.0

Financial ratios are mathematical comparisons of financial statement (P&L or Income & Expense, Cash Flow, and Balance Sheet Statements) accounts or categories.

These relationships between income, expense, cash flow and balance sheet accounts help investors, creditors, and internal company management understand how well a business is performing and areas of needing improvement.

Financial ratios are the most common tools used in analyzing a business’ financial standing. Ratios are easy to understand and simple to compute.

They can also be used to compare different companies in different industries. Since a ratio is simply a mathematically comparison based on proportions, big and small companies can be use ratios to compare their financial information. More »

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.  More »

Modeling Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) Impact on Renewable Energy Economics

February 5th, 2012 2 Comments   Posted in Clean Development Mechanism

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 »

Renewable Energy Investments and Fiscal Reforms will Ensure Sustainable Economic Growth and Avoid Greek-like Financial Meltdown

I would like to share my views with the purpose of suggesting what would be the sustainable economic and energy development path for our country, the Philippines.

With the passage of the Renewable Energy (RE) Law, the government thru the DOE, NREB, ERC, NGCP/TRANSCO, PEMC/WESM, NPC/NPC-SPUG, DUs, ECs, power generators (IPPs, IPPAs), NGOs, etc, and with the assistance of donor countries and financial institutions such as the WB, ADB, UNDP, USAID, AUSAID, etc, have developed the IRR and other pertinent regulations for the implementation of the RE Law, including the provision of feed-in-tariff (FIT) that will be paid to RE developers and generators so that it may provide non-fossil power generation to meet future demand of power as well as replace/augment supplies due to retirement of conventional and fossil power generation sources.

On several occasions, it has been articulated by both local and foreign experts that RE power generation is the sustainable way to go to meet the country’s energy and power needs in the future because: More »
