Summary of inputs and results for project finance models for various power generation technologies
I hope you had a wonderful time looking over the power generation technology summary that posted earlier.
I am providing below the summary to incorporate updates on the nuclear uranium PHWR technology:
GJ/kg fuel $/kg fab. $/kg total $/kg kWh/kg Efficiency
3,900 365 400 765 360,000 33.23%
I also updated the coal CFB and PC subcritical, supercritical and ultrasupercritical technologies.
I revised the structure of the models to allow 48 months of construction and 30 years of operation for coal, nuclear and ocean thermal technologies; the rest are 36 months of construction and 30 years of operation.
Since the models originate from one template, it would be most helpful in comparing alternative technologies, OEM or EPC supplier, capacity, efficiency or heat rate, construction lead time, operating period or economic life, overhaul schedule and capacity & heat rate degradation, fuel cost, and gov’t taxes and imposts.
Please refer also to attached price list of all my models and tool kits for energy and power applications.

I am happy to share with you the results of my continuing technical & research work on energy and power plant project finance modeling of various power generation technologies such as conventional, fossil, nuclear and renewable energy (biomass, WTE, mini-hydro, solar PV, wind and ocean thermal energy conversion or OTEC).
Please refer to the attached summary and please let me know if you would be interested in securing a full-license to use the various models listed in the summary.
The models are calibrated using US EIA, IEA and Paul Breeze and other internet sources of information to arrive at installed capacity, capacity factor, overnight $/kW capital cost (all-in cost), $/kW/year fixed O&M, $/MWh variable O&M, regulatory costs, fuel cost in native units, GHV of fuel, fuel-to-electricity conversion efficiency (thermal efficiency) or plant heat rate, construction period, economic life, cost of capital (% equity and IRR, % debt and loan interest), etc.
Since these are best-practice or latest information, it would be helpful in benchmarking local power plants and its performance so that an economic and financial decision is made to retire, refurbish, or construct a new power plant to provide adequate capacity to meet increasing future demand and replace old plants.
Hope to hear from you soon as to your interest in my complete line of project finance models.
If you are interested, please order via email at:
so I could provide you with my PayPal and bank/wire transfer details.
Once I received confirmation of payment, I will then email you the requested/ordered models.

Road Map for Pres. Obama : Preparing for the future energy economy is the quickest way out of the global financial crisis – low carbon, hydrogen, nuclear and breeder economy
Road Map for Pres. Obama : Preparing for the future energy economy is the quickest way out of the global financial crisis - low carbon, hydrogen, nuclear and breeder economy
It seems that the stimulus package is not working for the USA. A simple analysis reveals that it will never work because it is simply perpetuating and delaying the economic correction in the US which the Asian countries have done during the 1996 Asian Financial Crisis – they allowed big corporations to fail and recapitalize on their own accord, with government undertaking painful but necessary economic and fiscal reforms, and government leading the private sector in the right direction of energy efficiency (green homes and green buildings, smart grids, advanced and optimized manufacturing and logistics, optimal load dispatch, higher transport mileage, hybrid and electric vehicles), renewable energy (biomass, mini-hydro, wind, solar, ocean thermal energy conversion or OTEC), alternative fuels (biodiesel, bioethanol) and clean energy technologies (clean coal CFB, IGCC).
All of these initiatives, if undertaken on a global scale, will lead to sustainable development that mitigates global warming and climate change risks. And sustainable development will always lead to greater customer confidence in the future, leading to willingness on the citizenry to spend their money in new and energy efficient technologies – the necessary ingredients for long-term economic growth.
This is what the US Pres. Obama and the US Congress should provide leadership so that the whole world will follow in unison towards a common goal of eradicating permanently global poverty through sustainable economic development. Conserving expensive fossil fuels to prolong its economic lifetime while the world gradually shifts to a low-carbon economy is the heart of this paradigm shift.
This article will explain how it can be done. Please read on and give me your comments and suggestions, and if possible, email it to US Pres. Obama and the members of the US Congress.
The world’s ever growing population requires that massive energy and power projects be developed to keep pace with the socio-economic needs of the more technologically advanced offsprings of civilization.
Mankind has never seen before the exponential growth of energy demand as technological innovations lead to a more wired and electrically dependent society.
So the current scenario of a high carbon energy diet has raised alarm bells throughout the world and this is being relentlessly being pursued by no less than former US President Al Gore and the new “Inconvenient Truth”. More »
