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.

Wind energy is most available in countries within the 40 deg North latitude and 40 deg South latitude. It can be harnessed using giant wind turbines that when connected together in a wind farm can provide utility scale capacities of 2.0 MW per turbine and with 15 turbines, could produce 30 MW of power in a given wind farm.

Mini-hydro or run-of-river system is carried out mostly in the mountains where a slowly snaking terrain will lend itself to conveying the water via a canal headrace with minimal head loss and then dropping the water head thru the penstock to the power turbines and exiting to the tailrace to rejoin the river flow. As such, it does not need a dam but rather a diversion weir to divert water to the canal headrace. More »

Project Finance Model for Determining the “Best New Entrant” Power Generation Technology

In proposing a new power plant project to address a supply deficiency problem in a given grid, it is important for the project proponent and developer to demonstrate to the investors as well as to the regulator and end-users that the proposed power generation technology solution is the “best new entrant” that will address the power deficiency and provide the cheapest, reliable and stable electricity service.

Project Finance Model for Generic Diesel & RE Hybrid Power Plant

Project Finance Model for Generic Diesel & RE Hybrid Power Plant

The determination of optimal combination of diesel and renewable energy (RE) hybrid power plant is sometimes a difficult exercise for the project developer and EPC contractor.

After an inventory of the available fuel and RE resources in a particular location and application, the next step is to determine thru project finance modeling the economics of a stand alone diesel generator power plant (usually a compression ignition diesel engine running on expensive diesel fuel, gas oil, light fuel oil and bunker fuel oil), and considering a hybrid configuration using biomass resources (biomass gasification with diesel engine, landfill methane with diesel engine, sewage digestion or biogas with diesel engine, municipal solid waste with steam turbine generator, biomass direct combustion with steam turbine generator, biomass co-firing with fossil coal and oil, mini-hydro, wind farm and solar PV).

Project Finance Model for Hybrid Power Plant / Multi-fuel System with CDM

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.

Doing a market, technical and feasibility study for this end-use conversion economics will thus entail developing a robust project finance model that is versatile enought to handle conversion of existing power generation and steam/process heat technologies (coal fired, bunker fired, diesel fired diesel electric generators, steam and process heat equipment, refrigeration) to natural gas firing.

The author, an energy technology and business development consultant, has prepared an Incremental Economics Conversion Model for comparing a base case (existing coal-fired or oil fired generation, process heat, refrigeration and air conditioning equipment) versus a more energy efficient, less polluting and cheaper to operate natural gas-fired equipment.

Project Finance Models for Power Plants with Carbon Credits under CDM (download file)

Due to worldwide interest in carbon emission reduction credits thru the clean development mechanishm (CDM) of the Kyoto Protocol to encourage renewable and energy efficiency improvement in power generation to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate global warming, I am issuing another model update for January 2009.  I also made some changes to working capital and all-in project cost estimation and loan amortization calculations.
Also due to numerous inquiries and tremendous interest, the deadline has been extend up to 31 January 2010.  Order now to get 70% discount on any project finance model of your choice.  This 2010 version now includes carbon emission reduction credits under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the Kyoto Protocol. It provides for one time cost for consultancy services and registration to the CDM Executive Board and annual carbon emission reduction credits net of annual fees for monitoring by local consultants and Executive Board.

How to order your project finance models for power plants – get 50% discount via PayPal

How to order your project finance models for power plants – get 50% discount (extended 28 Feb 2015) via PayPal

Due to numerous inquiries and tremendous interest, the deadline has been extend up to 28 Feb 2015.  Order now to get 50% discount on any project finance model of your choice.

This advanced model allows you to perform the following:

1) Determine the impact of electricity tariff (selling price) on NPV, IRR and payback given the capital cost, fuel cost and O&M cost.

2) Determine the maximum main fuel price (natural gas, gas oil) to meet IRR given electricity tariff, capital cost and O&M cost.

3) Determine the maximum capital cost (all-in) to meet IRR given electricity tariff, fuel price and O&M cost.

4) Perform sensitivity analysis (+/- 10% change) on variables such as electricity tariff, rated capacity, plant heat rate (efficiency), fuel cost, capital cost and O&M costs on IRR.

5) The IRR may be defined as DCF-ROI (project cost vs cash flow), DCF-ROE (equity portion of project cost vs cash flow), DCF-FC (equity portion vs free cashflow), and discounted DCF-FC (native currency is depreciating vs foreign currency).  The model provides for analysis with escalation (nominal IRR) and without escalation (real IRR).

6) Optimize type of CCGT engine/manufacturer, plant location and cooling system (once thru sea water, once thru lake water, river cooling tower, deep well cooling tower, radiator cooling) and transmission line system (type of conductor).  The optimal configuration is determined by the combination that provides the cheapest electricity tariff, cheapest fuel or highest IRR.
