SBN Profit From Renewable Energy- Laurie Tennant

  1. 1. Profit from Renewable Energy Sustainable Business Network Highbury College, 25 November 2010 Laurie Tennant, Engenius Limited
  2. 2. Feed-in Tariff <ul><li>Since 01 April 2010 it has been possible to achieve good returns on investment in generation of electricity from renewable resources, thanks to Feed-in Tariffs which started on that date. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Qualifying Technologies: </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wind </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Solar-electric </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Biomass </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hydro </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Anaerobic Digestion </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CHP and micro-CHP (the electricity content of Combined Heat and Power) – including NG-fuelled </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Non-qualifying Technologies: </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tidal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wave </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Anything else eg landfill & sewage gas for generation, fuel cells </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. 5kW Wind Turbine
  4. 4. Solar-electric (PV) on school building
  5. 5. Anaerobic Digester
  6. 6. Micro-Hydro Turbine
  7. 7. <ul><li>On 01 June 2011 HMG will introduce a similar scheme in respect of renewably-generated heat energy, called the Renewable Heat Incentive . Details are not yet known but qualifying technologies are expected to include: </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Bio-mass for heat generation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bio-fuels (for heat generation; probably not for traction) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Anaerobic Digestion (gas for heating and export) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Solar-thermal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CHP and micro-CHP (the heat content of Combined Heat and Power) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>   </li></ul><ul><li>This presentation is not about the technologies, nor about how to select them. </li></ul><ul><li>In almost every case the appropriate technology will be dictated by local conditions (site, environment, commercial, ethical). </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>We are going to look only at the economics . </li></ul>
  8. 8. Grants for not-for-profit may be available through funds such as CSEP and electricity companies, but LCBP funds will cease when the relevant tariffs come into effect, or before if funding is exhausted. For farmers, see: www.seeda.co.uk/rdpe   Soft loans are available in some circumstances from Carbon Trust; private financiers have also entered the market eg Triodos Bank and Bridgegreen . Commercial loans will be secured on revenue streams arising from the tariffs. Many mortgage lenders are happy to add the cost of microgeneration equipment to the loan. Enhanced Capital Allowances do not apply unless equipment is on the ECA list – electricity generation isn’t at present: http://www.eca.gov.uk/      
  9. 9. <ul><li>Conditions of the Feed-in Tariff </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Equipment on the MCS-accredited list (<50kW) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MCS-accredited installer (<50kW) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Genuine use for, or export of, energy generated </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Less than 5MW installed capacity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Installed after June 2009 (lower rates apply before) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
