Biomass Power Plant Model in European Country Currencies – updated April 2017

April 1st, 2017 No Comments   Posted in financial models

Biomass Power Plant Model in European Country Currencies – with financial ratios for risk analysis

Finding a project finance model template for Biomass (cogeneration, direct combustion, gasification, IGCC, WTE, pyrolysis) in European country currencies is now made easy using exchange rates to US DOLLAR as of end March 2017.

Biomass power is needed in Europe to address global warming and climate change and take advantage of the huge biomass potential of Europe. Investments in Biomass power generation technology will provide both dispatch-able renewable energy to provide backup power for intermittent renewable energy such as solar, wind, mini-hydro, etc.

The models also include financial ratios to identify potential risks during the project development stage, such as:

a) Liquidity Ratios (current ratio, quick ratio)

b) Solvency Ratios (debt to equity ratio, equity ratio, debt ratio)

c) Efficiency Ratios (asset turnover ratio, inventory turnover ratio)

d) Profitability Ratios (gross margin ratio, EBITDA margin ratio, return on assets ratio, net profit to assets ratio, return on owners’ equity, return on capital employed ratio)

e) Market Prospect Ratios (earnings per share, price earnings ratio, dividend payout ratio, dividend yield ratio)

The sample models are based on the advanced (regulator) template that is easy to use and understand.

Whatever currency you use, when the cost inputs are the same in USD currency, the resulting all-in capital cost (USD, USD/kW) and electricity tariff (USD/kWh) will be the same for all

Power Generation and Fuel Cycle Technologies – a Quick Guide to Energy Articles and Financial Modeling

July 9th, 2016 No Comments   Posted in cost of power generation

Power Generation and Fuel Cycle Technologies – a mini-lecture series with power point presentation and excel project finance models

Your energy technology selection expert is beginning a lecture series on power generation and fuel cycle technologies. This will involve a discussion on the principles of the technology, its history, capital and operating costs, benefits and risks.

Objectives

1) To provide the participants a basic understanding of the following commercially available:

– fuel cycle technologies

– power generation technologies, and

– energy storage technologies

2) To know the basic principles, costs, environmental impact, risks and applicability of each of these technologies, and

3) To present the technology roadmap of each of these technologies to guide us in the near term (next 20 years – up to 2020) and in the long term (next 50 years – up to 2050)

The Past

o Introduction – what-is-electricity

o How is Electricity Generated – generation-of-electricity

o History of Power Generation – history-of-power-generation

o The Complete Electric Power System (base load, intermediate & peaking loads)

The Present

o Commercially Available Fuel Technologies, Power Generation Technologies, and Energy Storage Technologies –

commercially-available-fuel-cycle-technologies

o Primary Energy Sources – primary-energy-sources

o Fuel Properties – fuel-properties

o For the commercially available technologies:

– Basic Principles

– Costs

– Environmental Impact

– Associated Risks

– Applicability

COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE POWER GENERATION TECHNOLOGIES:

The Future

o The Technology Roadmap: Vision, Portfolio, Approach, Global Drivers of Change, Cost of Not Yet Commercially Available Tech –

technology-roadmap

o The Near Term Fuel, Power Generation, and Energy Storage Technologies (up to 2020) –

near-term-energy-sources

o The Long Fuel, Power Generation, and Energy Storage Technologies (up to 2050) –

long-term-energy-sources

=========

The project finance models of the power generation technology selection expert are based on one model template; hence, the results are unique for the technology’s capital and operating costs, fuel properties and costs, energy conversion efficiency or heat rate, and energy resource availability and reliability.

The financial models are denominated in Philippine Pesos (PhP 47.00 = USD). You can easily convert to your own local currency by changing the base and forward fixed exchange rate (e.g. XXX 100.00 = USD, USD 1.00 = USD) and do a global replacement of all PhP with XXX currency.

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) – Solar Thermal Power Generation Technology Model

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) – Solar Thermal Power Generation Technology Model

Your energy technology selection expert has developed a CSP Project Finance Model for use by CSP project developers.

It can help you prepare the feasibility study and design or optimize the various options to give you the lowest Levelized cost of energy (LCOE).

Given inputs on installed unit capacity, number of units, capacity factor, all-in capital cost $/kW, fixed O&M cost $/kW/year and variable O&M cost $/MWh, you can calibrate the model to meet your annual generation and determine first year tariff, short-run marginal running cost SRMC and long-run marginal running cost LRMC (also known as LCOE).

Mini-Hydro Model with CDM

Here is a sample of a project finance model for a mini-hydro power plant using the Clean Development Mechanism principles, i.e. no escalation, no taxes and government imposts and around 15% p.a. return on investment, and 100% owners’ equity only (no leveraging with cheap debt).

The CDM analyses the economics purely on the technical and economic performance of the technology (capacity, reliability, availability, efficiency, capital cost, and operating & maintenance costs). More »

Gov’t to change renewable energy mix

Gov’t to change renewable energy mix

Inquirer News, November 1st, 2012

The Department of Energy (DOE) is planning to reallocate the installation targets among the renewable energy sources in favor of the more expensive solar and wind power projects.

Energy Undersecretary Jose Layug Jr. assured the public, however, that such an action would not increase the feed-in-tariff (FIT) allowance—or the universal levy to be collected from all power consumers for the use of renewable energy facilities—beyond the estimate of 5 centavos per-kilowatt-hour (kWh).
