Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) Model- avail of 50% discount now

As promised in my previous blog, I will now deal with the cost of renewable energy technologies (feed-in-tariff). I will be making a special offer for the purchase of the following RE technologies:

1) Biomass Power Model (Direct Combustion, Cogeneration, Gasification of MSW)

2) Mini-Hydro Power Model

3) Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) Model

4) Solar PV Power Model

5) Wind Power Model

6) Renewable Energy Resource Assessment Model (Wind, Solar PV, Mini-Hydro) – Converts wind speed measurement, solar radiation and rainfall data into hourly power output, annual power generation and annual capacity factor)

The Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) Model is a project finance model for calculating the feed-in-tariff to be paid to all biomass energy developers and generators. It will be paid by the TRANSCO operator now NGCP (National Grid Corporation of the Philippines) who in turn collects the entire amount from all end-users and private generators of electricity in the country.

The Renewable Charge (RC) is like the Universal Levy that is calculated by dividing the total renewable energy payment to developers and generators by the total electricity sales in the country, thus spreading the burden uniformly thru all citizens, including all tax payers and non-tax payers and foreigners who are using electricity in the country.

Because of its universal application, the burden is small and equally shared by all citizens and foreigners alike, making a modest contribution to promoting renewable energy use, sustainable development by using inexhaustible renewable energy to conserve and prolong the lifetimes of fossil fuels (oil, coal, natural gas, LNG).

My model for feed-in-tariff (FiT) calculation has input and assumptions and result summary sheet that is easy to understand. It also has other worksheets for construction period and operating period calculations of capital cost, generation, revenues and operating costs. Standard financial reports are then prepared for income statement, balance sheet, cash flow statement and calculation of equity IRR and project IRR.

The special price of the Ocean Thermal FIT Model is US$1,200 with sample data and simple instructions.

To purchase, you may send payment thru PayPal by clicking the DONATE button in this blog found at the lower right hand side, or confirm your order via email and I will email back to you my bank account where you can remit payment via bank/wire transfer.

The control panel of the model is shown below:
