EDEN - Scoping Report Eden V1

  1. 1. Endogenizar o Desenvolvimento de Energias Novas PPS 6 – Scoping Report Version 1 Francisco Borges, Luke Murray and Hugo Seymour Instituto Superior Técnico, June 2007
  2. 2. Introduction This document aims to collate and reference the key relevant information to be used in the development of PPS6 EDEN, activity 1 (F1) “Impact Analysis”. It aims to provide an initial report as to the methodology to be followed, the sources of information to be used, and the main assumptions made. This document is designed to start an on-going and dynamic process and will be added to regularly over the following months following further research and feedback from the project partners. Scope of the Roadmap: The scope of the EDEN roadmap is shaped by its need to be a useful resource for advising policy makers about the effects of integrating hydrogen technologies (for both transport and stationary applications) into the Portuguese energy system. The following detailed parameters are used to define the scope: Time Frame: The time frame of the EDEN roadmap will cover the period between the present and the year 2050. The main intervals to be considered are 2020, 2030 and 2050, using 2000 as the base year. It is expected that the transition period (until 2030) will be more accurate as it is based on existing information and therefore will be very detailed. In comparison, the period after 2030 until 2050 will be dealt with in a more visionary way (since information is limited in some areas). Geographical Coverage: The geographical coverage of the EDEN PPS 6 deals is for the whole of Portugal. The methodology chosen has been deliberately developed to dovetail in with the HyWays European Hydrogen Energy Roadmap so as to enable comparison with Europe as a whole and with the 10 MS represented in that project. Analysis will also be developed at a regional level within Portugal, with a specific infrastructure analysis aiming to identify the location of the early user centers and how key hydrogen infrastructure is likely to develop. Technological Coverage: Two categories of hydrogen end use technologies are considered in this road mapping exercise: transport and stationary applications, they are defined below:
  3. 3. Transport applications: Hydrogen applications related to the road transport in general and passenger cars and buses (mentioned in the rest of the document as transport). A list of the types of vehicles considered will be released to the working partners in a further draft of this scoping report. Stationary applications: Hydrogen applications considered are CHP for housing, commercial and services sectors. A full detailed list of CHP fuel cells to be considered will be released in the next draft of this scoping report. Baseline Scenario: In order to quantify the effects and impacts of a hydrogen introduction in the Portuguese energy system a business-as-usual scenario is set up to enable comparisons with “case-study” scenarios (see list bellow for more information). The Baseline Scenario (BS) used on EDEN’s PPS 6 was developed under the TIMES_PT model (http//air.dcea.fct.unl.pt/projects/e2pol). Assumptions were made in the creation of this BS these assumptions are described below: Assumptions in the Baseline Scenario: 1. A ban on nuclear power due to the political unacceptability of this option in the modeled time horizon; 2. A minimum of electricity generated from gas combined cycle from 2010-2030, following the energy sources diversification policy and support to use of natural gas. The generated electricity corresponds to at least 1100 MW installed capacity; 3. New coal power plants will only be available from 2015 onwards following energy sources diversification policy and support to use of natural gas; 4. It is assumed that coal technologies without sequestration will not be implemented from 2015 onwards, following expected GHG control policies; 5. Electricity generation from municipal waste will continue until 2030 following present waste management policy; 6. Electricity generation from wood residues will continue throughout the lifetime of base- year plants following forest fire control policies; 7. A minimum of 1.1 MW installed capacity of wind onshore is set up in 2005, following the existing feed-in-tariffs for renewable electricity, although this is not included in the costs of renewable electricity generation technologies in TIMES_PT; 8. In 2010 biofuels consumption will be at least 5.75% of the consumed diesel and gasoline in transport, following the Directive 2003/30/EC; 9. From 2015 onwards at least 39% of generated electricity will be from renewable sources following the Directive 2001/77/EC;
  4. 4. 10. From 2010 onwards the total CO2 emissions can not exceed 63 344 GgCO2, following the reasoning of the national commitment within the EU burden sharing agreement; (Cleto, Simões, Fortes and Seixas, 2007) Learning Curves: A learning curve or experimental curve is a macro - model of human activity for accumulating knowledge or experiences, and is usually adapted to industrial production process. (Tsuchiya and Kobayashi, 2002) In EDEN the concept of the learning curves is used to forecast the evolution of technology prices over time, taking in account the number of units of that same technology produced and the learning rate of that same technology. In EDEN’s context the learning curves considered are for hydrogen technologies, Transport and CHP applications for the “residential” and “commerce and services” sectors. Two different learning curves will be used in the TIMES modeling exercise and combined with two different penetration rates (see below), making up 4 different scenarios. These two learning curves will be called High and Moderate learning curves respectively. Hydrogen Scenarios: Four hydrogen scenarios are created using different combinations of projected rates of deployment (Penetration rates – see next section) of hydrogen based end use applications and learning curves, (table 1). These scenarios are compared with the BS enabling an assessment of the impacts of integrating hydrogen into the energy system in different quantities and prices. Penetration rate high moderate Learning high scenario 1 (HH) scenario 2 (MH) curve moderate scenario 3 (HM) scenario 4 (MM) Table 1 – Four Hydrogen Scenarios Penetration Rates: A penetration rate is the comparative proportion of a certain type of technology within a certain category that includes different technologies implemented (with the same function or output). In the scope of EDEN’s PPS 6 two penetration rates are used and they are defined as: Transport applications: % of the fleet within the types vehicles considered in this • study
  5. 5. Stationary applications: % of demand for heat in the “Residential” “Commercial and • Services” sector satisfied through the use of hydrogen CHP. The penetration rates selected were extracted from the European Project “HyWays” (www.hyways.de). The reasons for using “HyWays” penetration rates are the proven robustness of its methodology and the possible comparability of the Portuguese results with the 10 countries mapped under this European project. Penetration Rates for Transport: Two different penetration rates were considered for transport: high and moderate. In both cases the transport applications are driven into the market in between 2010 and 2020. The more optimistic approximates to nearly 75% of hydrogen technologies penetration in 2050 whereas the more cautious one to 40% (table 2). Total share of car fleet 2010 2020 2030 2040 2050 [%] * High - 3.3% 23.7% 54.4% 74.5% Moderate - 0.7% 7.6% 22.6% 40.0% Table 2 – Penetration rates for a potential development of hydrogen vehicles Penetration Rates for Stationary Applications: The penetration rates for stationary applications appear in a slightly different way than those used in the transport sector. This happens due to the different sectors to be considered “Residential” and “Commerce and Services”. Taking this into consideration, four different penetration rates (two for “Residential” and two for “Commerce and Services”) were selected (tables 3 and 4). It is important to mention that both “high” penetration rates (for “Residential” and “Commerce and Services”) are combined under the heading “high” penetration rate for stationary applications, the same happens with the “moderate” penetration rates. Total share of CHP installed 2010 2020 2030 2040 2050 capacity in Households [%] High - 1% 4% 8% 10% Moderate - 0.1% 0.5% 2% 5% Table 3 – Penetration rates for a potential development of hydrogen stationary applications in households
  6. 6. Total share of CHP installed 2010 2020 2030 2040 2050 capacity in Commercial and Services sector [%] High - 0.3% 1.3% 2.7% 3.3% Moderate - >0% 0.2% 0.7% 1.7% Table 4 – Penetration rates for a potential development of hydrogen stationary applications in the commerce and services sector Transport Demand: The demand for transport is an important input in this road mapping exercise since it gives the values on which the transport sector analysis is based. The categories considered are “Road Bus Intercity”, “Road Bus Urban”, “Road Car Long Distance” and “Road Car Short Distance”. The demand for transport values used in EDEN’s PPS6 was extracted from the Portuguese 1 Plan for Climatic Changes (PNAC) . In PNAC the estimation of the demand for transport doesn’t go beyond 2030 (chart 1). The options for extending these demand projections for transport are still under consideration and will be outlined in the next draft Demand for Road Transport Passengers (From PNAC) Road.Bus.Intercity. 80 000 70 000 60 000 Road.Bus.Urban. 50 000 PKM 40 000 Road.Car.Long 30 000 Distance. 20 000 Road.Car.Short 10 000 Distance. 0 2000 2005 2010 2015 2020 2025 2030 Year Chart 1 – Demand for Transport 2000 - 2030 Heating Demand for Residential and Commercial and Services sectors: The demand values for heating demand for the residential and commercial services sectors were obtained trough socio-economic parameters fed into TIMES model. These socio-economic parameters were obtained from the GEM-E3 model. GEM-E3 is an applied general equilibrium 1 Plano Nacional para as Alterações Climáticas

In the Residential Sector (chart 2) it’s shown that the demand for heating decreases over time. This change can be explained due to the expected increase of thermal efficiency in the sector.

  8. 8. Even though TIMES model is quite a powerful tool in terms of optimization, a set of chains was chosen to be fed into the model. This happens in order to enable the model to become more sensitive to a set of factors: - The characteristics of the current and foreseeable energy supply system and energy infrastructure up to 2050 - The available natural resources - The application and penetration rate to be expected for hydrogen - The current hydrogen production sites and infrastructure (if present) - The available and anticipated hydrogen and energy technologies The chains to be analyzed and their likely introduction date were obtained after consultation of the EDEN stakeholders, for full list of chains selected see the vision and chain selection document.
