CDM Ocean Thermal Model_50 MW2.xls

CDM Ocean Thermal Model_50 MW2.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.

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion or OTEC is most adapted in deep waters near the equator where the temperature difference between the surface (30 deg Celsius) and a depth of 1 km (10 deg Celsius) located within 10 km from the shoreline. More »

MTO Ocean Thermal Model_50 MW.xls

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion or OTEC is most adapted in deep waters near the equator where the temperature difference between the surface (30 deg Celsius) and a depth of 1 km (10 deg Celsius) located within 10 km from the shoreline.

This 20 deg Celsius thermal gradient is available throughout the year near the equator and diminishes up to 40 deg North latitude and South latitude, beyond which the OTEC is not technically viable for having a much lower thermal gradient. This provides a very high capacity factor of 91% and it only unavailable when it de-couples during a tropical storm and the OTEC power barge transfers to a safer cove to ride the storm.

This MTO first-year tariff model for OTEC makes use of the basic assumptions of the country’s RE regulator for rated capacity (80 MW), capacity factor (91%), plant own use (36%), and transmission line loss (1.82%). More »

Hi Jeff,
For biomass waste-to-energy and waste-to-power applications, you may utilize biogas from human waste, kitchen, commercial waste, biodegradable industrial wastes and farm and animal wastes. More »

Evaluating Renewable Energy Potential and Project Economics Made Easy

Evaluating Renewable Energy Potential and Project Economics Made Easy

Your energy technology selection expert wishes to announce the latest release of renewable energy (RE) project finance and energy resource evaluation tools, specifically for evaluating the performance of RE hybrid combinations such as minihydro-diesel, solar PV-diesel, wind-diesel PV and biomass gasification-diesel generation for off-grid as well as on-grid systems.  The model will calculate the RE resource potential, predict the annual generation, and then calculate annual average capacity factors.

For off-grid, the model evaluates also the optimum fossil fuel back-up support so that the RE (minihydro, solar, wind, biomass) hybrid system will provide 24/7 hours of affordable and reliable electricity service.

Don’t waste your time evaluating the RE potential using obsolete and un-integrated software that are site and technology specific.  In just a few minutes and few hours, you could run a series of wind site evaluations which compares the wind power levelized selling price (tariff) to your country’s diesel power generation cost or feed-in tariff.

It’s now the right time to change to the fully-integrated multi-site RE hybrid evaluation tools. More »
