Project Finance Model for Incremental Economic Analysis with CDM

Incremental economic analysis is the fundamental method of analysis in comparing two or more competing alternatives in order to determine the feasibility of undertaking incremental investments considering the incremental benefits that may be derived.  It is useful in analyzing equipment up-grading, replacement, systems improvement and fuel switching.

During implementation of a project feasibility study for a natural gas pipeline that will serve an anchor load 250-500 mw natural gas-fired combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT), it was felt that additional market for the excess Malampaya natural gas (300 mw surplus plus banked gas for sale) needs to be developed to improve the economics of the pipeline.

How to evaluate economics of energy conversion – incremental analysis of two alternatives

In our day to day life, each individual is always presented the dilemma of which of two or more alternatives is the best solution to a problem.

The same life’s problem is encountered by businesses, power generators and users of fuels and energy resources – which is more economical – using an old diesel engine to generate electricity or to convert to dual fueling with diesel/fuel oil and natural gas fuel or purchase a new diesel engine capable of running on dual fuels such as diesel/fuel oil and the cheaper natural gas.

Your energy technology expert has modified his reciprocating engine model to run on multiple fuels such as gasoline, diesel, biofuels, fuel oils, biogas, landfill gas or natural gas. More »
