Financial Ratios in Project Finance Model Ver. 3.0

Financial ratios are mathematical comparisons of financial statement (P&L or Income & Expense, Cash Flow, and Balance Sheet Statements) accounts or categories.

These relationships between income, expense, cash flow and balance sheet accounts help investors, creditors, and internal company management understand how well a business is performing and areas of needing improvement.

Financial ratios are the most common tools used in analyzing a business’ financial standing. Ratios are easy to understand and simple to compute.

They can also be used to compare different companies in different industries. Since a ratio is simply a mathematically comparison based on proportions, big and small companies can be use ratios to compare their financial information. More »

Project Finance Model Template for a Biomass Thermal Power Plant – the Financial Worksheet

Your energy technology selection and project finance modeling expert has just developed a powerful and understandable template for the construction of a project finance model based on an existing ERC (Energy Regulatory Commission) project finance model for renewable energy power projects (e.g. biomass thermal, solar PV, wind, mini-hydro, ocean thermal energy conversion), which was also modified for non-RE power generation technologies such as coal thermal, oil genset, oil thermal, gas thermal, gas combined cycle gas turbine or CCGT, open cycle gas  turbine or OCGT, large hydro, petcoke thermal, combined heat and power (CHP) diesel engine genset (diesel, bunker), gasoline engine genset and OCGT (propane, natural gas), and nuclear power.

Economics of a 135 MW (net) coal-fired Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) Thermal Power Plant

Following is an annual construction model (3 years or 36 months) and a 25-year operating project finance model (30% equity, 70% debt) with a 16% p.a. equity IRR and coal cost of US$85 per tonne (metric ton or MT) with a gross heating value (GHV) of 10,000 Btu/lb,  36 months construction, 25 years commercial operation) using average annual drawdown (1/3 in year 1, 1/3 in year 2, 1/3 in year 3 construction drawdown). The CFB has an overall fuel to electricity thermal efficiency of 37.39% (92.5% boiler efficiency, 42.0% steam turbine efficiency and 96.25% mechanical clutch & electric generator efficiency). The results are as follows: More »

Energy Balance for Power, Heat, Cooling

September 27th, 2011 No Comments   Posted in Trigeneration and Cogeneration

Energy Balance for Power, Heat, Cooling

Addressing climate change and global warming needs effective counter measures such as reducing GHG emission from carbon dioxide emitted by fossil-fired power plants.

Using tri-generation systems is one effective measure that could be used to reduce fuel consumption  as it increases energy utilization efficiency from the traditional 33% for Rankin steam cycles (oil, gas, coal thermal) to 54% for combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) to tri-generation (power, heat, cooling) that could utilize as much as 85% of the fossil energy.

When the simultaneous provision of power, process heat and space cooling or refrigeration is required in an industry and commercial building such as hotels, hospitals, office buildings and computer data centers, then tri-generation sytems is a good investment as it offers cost and energy saving to the building owner and the country.

Your energy technology expert has prepared an easy-to-use Excel model for preparing an energy balance for power, heat, chilled water (tri-generation) and co-generation (power, heat) system More »

Project Finance Model for Incremental Economic Analysis with CDM

January 11th, 2010 2 Comments   Posted in financial models

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.
