How to reduce Philippine Electricity Cost – the most expensive power in Asia – to improve its competitiveness

On various occasions and public debates, there is a unified concern to lower Philippine electricity cost in order to improve the country’s competitiveness in order to attain inclusive economic growth.

However, reducing power costs, such as putting up more cheaper power plants like coal-fired power plants instead of expensive petroleum-based power plants and intermittent renewable energy power technologies have to be balanced with the need to reduce greenhouse gas (CO2), sulfur (SO2), NOX and particulate emission to mitigate climate change and air pollution.

Integrated Energy Planning – the path towards CLEAN ENERGY

Integrated Energy Planning – the path towards CLEAN ENERGY

Recently, Mr. Bill Gates renewed mankind’s yearning for CLEAN ENERGY as the way forward towards sustainable and inclusive growth for all peoples of mother earth.

But this would require technical effort, economical approach and environmentally sound action plan that could only be developed through a scientific-based “integrated energy planning”. For such planning to gain wide-spread reach, technical, economic, financial and optimization tools must be within reach by energy and development planners, be it at the level of a community such as off-grid remote areas, river-basin based development regions, island groups, countries, and continents with integrated energy and power networks.

Reaction to Mr. Bill Gates’ post on CLEAN ENERGY

Hi Mr. Bill Gates:

Thanks for keeping the focus on CLEAN ENERGY, and how best to achieve an economic and environmental balance for its future use and mankind’s benefit.

This would require, I believe, easy access to a set of tools and processes that will automate and institutionalize the technical and economic analysis of renewable energy (RE) projects and non-RE projects to determine feasibility, provide inputs to both short-term and long-term optimal dispatch and capacity expansion planning, in order to achieve optimum energy and power generation mix, least cost of energy, lower fuel consumption, reduced GHG emission, sulfur emission and global warming impact of the power industry.

The Paradigm Shift from Nuclear Energy to Renewable Energy – the Fukushima debacle

April 16th, 2011 4 Comments   Posted in nuclear energy and power

The Paradigm Shift from Nuclear Energy to Renewable Energy – the Fukushima debacle

The recent nuclear meltdown incident in one of the 15th largest nuclear power plant in the world as a result of a sequence of events starting with an Intensity 9.0 earthquake that initiated a 10-15 meter tsunami wave within minutes (leaving little time for safe evacuation in spite of adequate tsunami warning by civil and military authorities) that engulfed as far as 10-20 kilometers inland along the flat lands of northeastern Japan, and in the process destroying buildings, roads, bridges, flinging ships inland and disabling the backup diesel generation system of the Fukushima nuclear power plant.

There are newspaper accounts that the earthquake isolated the Fukushima nuclear power plant from the grid, and with a non-operable backup diesel generation backstopped only by an 8-hour battery pack, the world was indeed very close to a China-syndrome type nuclear power plant meltdown. Only the timely use of seawater pumped using crude methods to cool the reactor core and the spent fuel pool prevented a full meltdown. Up to now, the nuclear power plant operator has not succeeded in stabilizing the cooling water system and has relied on pumping and spraying sea water over the damaged nuclear reactors and exposed spent fuel rod cooling pools, leading to leakage of hot radioactive and contaminated sea water into the sea thru the minute cracks on the reactor building’s damage floors.

Feed-in Tariff (FiT) to be issued by March 2011

February 16th, 2011 No Comments   Posted in feed-in tariff

Feed-in Tariff (FiT) to be issued by March 2011

The government thru the National Renewable Energy Board (NREB) is targetting to come up with the feed-in tariff (FiT) rate scheme by the end of March this year (2011), a top Department of Energy (DOE) official said.

The FiT is the price per kWh sold that will be paid to all renewable energy (RE) developers and power generators for puting up these intermittent power generation plants. It shall be fixed for 15 years and shall be subject to review every 3 years with the possibility of lowering the FiT as technology and economy of scale improves. It is, however, prospective, and applies only to future RE projects, thus protecting the earlier RE investments from regulatory and pricing risks arising from technological improvements. The RE technologies being intermittent are thus considered must run and will be dispatched when available and transmission and distribution system operators are obliged to ensure that investments are made to ensure their safe and stable connection into the grid.

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

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.
