  • The national grid is broken up into several layers The national Grid company owns the hardware in England and Wales, And overseas the maintaince of the correct voltage and Frequency. Then there are 14 DNO’s who are licensed to look after and maintain the grid equipment in there particular area. In north Wales this i Scottish Power. If you wish to contact your generation capacity to grid you have to apply for permission to them. Then there are the suppliers who the consumer pays for there energy consumption. They buy the power the consumer uses on a open market set up. The supplier pays a charge to the DNO and the SO for the use and maintance of the national grid accounting for around 15% of a consumers bill.
  • Each generator has to buy a certain number of Renewable energy certificates each year. It can earn Rocs by buying power from a renewable generator or if the cost of a buying the ROCs it can chose to buy from Ofgem at a set cost currently around 31p a rock. If a supplier buys a lot of renewable power and goes over its ROCS quota it can sell them on. The buy out of 31p a rock means that the price of Rocs are usually valued at this price but Rocs are sold on an open market. All the money OFgem receives as part of its buy out funds is distributed between the renewable generators dependent on how much they generate. Even Off grid renewable generation can qualify to earn ROCS .
  • Micro Generation And Selling Your Power

    1. 1. Connecting to the national grid and selling your power
    2. 2.

Low Renewable Obligation Certificates </li></ul><ul><li>5. How feed in tariff is properly going to </li></ul><ul><li>work. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Intro to Uk national grid operation <ul><li>National grid (SO) is in charge of making sure the grid operates at the correct voltage and frequency </li></ul><ul><li>14 Distribution Network Operators (DNO) look after the Running of the grid there and distribution of power around it </li></ul><ul><li>Many Suppliers buy energy on a open market from different energy sources </li></ul><ul><li>The supplier charge the customer for there energy use </li></ul><ul><li>The supplier pay a charge to the DNO and SO accounting for around 25% for the consumers bill </li></ul><ul><li>If you want to supply power to the grid then you must first ask permission from the DNO </li></ul>
    4. 4. Power generators National Grid systems Operator (SO) 14 licensed distribution network operators Consumer Your chosen energy supplier Energy Money Flow of cash and Energy
    5. 5. Micro generation Certification Scheme <ul><li>The MCS is a scheme set up to allow consumers better guarantees of renewable products and installers </li></ul><ul><li>An MCS approved product or installer must comply to certain Regulations regard Advertising, Product description and adherence to all relevant technical standards </li></ul>
    6. 6. MCS <ul><li>A lot of grant scheme are only available to MCS Installed products </li></ul><ul><li>Has a recognisable advertisement </li></ul><ul><li>Gives better Guarantees of good quality products and installers </li></ul><ul><li>Provides a starting ground when searching for an installer </li></ul><ul><li>Advertising rules Meet Office of fair trading standards </li></ul><ul><li>Most likely Fits will only be obtainable with a MCS install </li></ul>
    7. 7. Connecting to the national grid <ul><li>The process of connecting to grid is regulated by the DNO </li></ul><ul><li>Bs standard 7671 apply to any cabling </li></ul><ul><li>G83/1 set down certain regulation regarding how the power is fed to grid inc </li></ul><ul><li>Automatic isolation of generator during a power outage </li></ul><ul><li>Correct voltage and frequency rates </li></ul>
    8. 8. Application <ul><li>Any generator over 16amp must have prior permission before connection </li></ul><ul><li>Smaller generators must have notification sent to the DNO when the generator is connected </li></ul><ul><li>30days to file paper work with full project details </li></ul>
    9. 9. ROCs <ul><li>All suppliers are required to buy power from a RE </li></ul><ul><li>They are required to acquire a certain number of ROCs a year </li></ul><ul><li>The amount increase each year </li></ul><ul><li>Generators create 1 ROC for every 1Mwh they produce </li></ul><ul><li>They can then sell the ROC on </li></ul><ul><li>This can be done independently of supplying power </li></ul><ul><li>There a set buy out price current £37.19p a ROC </li></ul><ul><li>Any buy out money is distributed between the generators </li></ul>
    10. 10. Flow of money and ROCs Suppliers with obligation to obtain ROCs Renewable Generator Energy and Rocs Money Buy Out cost (ofgem) Pot of money from Buy outs (Ofgem) Money Rocs Money Supplier with an excess of ROCs Rocs Money Money from buy outs shared between ROC producers as a percentage of market share
    11. 11. Who can use Rocs <ul><li>Anyone who’s generating the electricity in a renewable manor can apply to join the scheme </li></ul><ul><li>Rocs can either be sold on the open market Via a broker who’ll take a fee </li></ul><ul><li>Rocs can be sold to Ofgem for a guaranteed amount as long as producing is over 500kwh usually around £0.33 a kwh </li></ul>
    12. 12. Rocks for Micro-generation <ul><li>Anyone producing less than 500 Kwh is not worth using ROCs </li></ul><ul><li>In April 2010 producers less than 50Kwh will be excluded from ROCs and feed in tariff introduced </li></ul><ul><li>ROCs the price can be vary Due to ROCs being sold on a open market Ie more renewable generation price of rocs will drop </li></ul><ul><li>Makes long-term investment harder to achieve </li></ul>
    13. 13. Feed in tariff Feed in tariff are credited with the large scale introduction of Renewable energy sources in many countries some key examples being Germany and Israel. The government in about half way though the consultancy phase and the scheme is aimed to come into effect in April 2010 The Scheme will not be a true feed in tariff as premium amount will paid for unit generated rather than unit supplied to the grid German’s Renewable Generation amounts have risen exponentially with the boom beginning in the mid nineties <ul><li>Countries with Fit schemes </li></ul><ul><li>Israel (2008 ) </li></ul><ul><li>Iran (2009) </li></ul><ul><li>Canada (2006 </li></ul><ul><li>Spain (2007) </li></ul><ul><li>South Africa (2009) </li></ul><ul><li>China (2009) </li></ul>
    14. 14. How the UK schemes will work <ul><li>Existing scheme under 50kw will automatically be transferred to FITS </li></ul><ul><li>New scheme from 50kw to 50Mw will have to make a one off decision between ROCs and Fits </li></ul><ul><li>Power generated will be paid at a fixed rate dependent on the technology </li></ul><ul><li>Any electricity fed into the grid will be brought at £0.05Kwh </li></ul><ul><li>The price will guaranteed for 20 year or 25 years for solar power applications </li></ul>
    15. 15. Proposed Tariff Scheme 0 18.0 50–250kW Wind 0 16.0 250–500kW Wind 0 4.5 500kW–5MW Wind 3 20.5 15–50kW Wind 3 23.0 1.5–15kW Wind 4 30.5 <1.5kW Wind 7 26 Stand alone system PV 7 26 100kW–5MW PV 7 28 10–100kW PV 7 31 4-10kW PV 7 36.5 <4kW (retrofit) PV 7 31 <4kW (new build) PV 0 4.5 1-5MW Hydro 0 8.5 100kW–1MW Hydro 0 12 10–100kW Hydro 0 17.0 <10kW Hydro 0 9 CHP Biomass 0 4.5 50kW-5MW Biomass 0 9 <50kW Biomass 0 11.5 CHP Anaerobic digestion 0 9 Electricity only Anaerobic digestion Annual degression % Proposed initial tariff p/kWh) Scale Technology
    16. 16. House Hold Renewable Generation capacity Any excess energy will be sold to the grid at £0.05Khw The home hold can buy any extra energy it needs National Grid Energy Supplier What ever is generated receives a fixed played rate
    17. 17. How the fit scheme be coasted <ul><li>The fits scheme will be shared cost for the Suppliers </li></ul><ul><li>Eg is one Suppliers is buying £30 and the other £10 worth of energy on the fit scheme then the latter must pay the other company half the difference thus sharing the cost. </li></ul>
    18. 18. Timetable <ul><li>FITs don’t come into until properly April 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>Still in consultation Period </li></ul><ul><li>First Draft will b compete by December </li></ul><ul><li>Should be submitted to Parliament by February </li></ul><ul><li>Coming into force in April 2010 </li></ul>
