What Has Changed Now:• Technology is better• Costs coming down• Size of the market is growing• Capital needs are great• Distributed Generation (DG) is developing rapidly• Key is what is the strategy for market entry?
What is Changing• Planned generation capacity not expected to keep pace with system demand growth Will create significant short-term problems DG is one option to help meet load growth• Consumer DG gaining worldwide acceptance Integrated or stand alone Small, modular electric generation Cost effective power solution• The key so far: outside the utility infrastructure and close to the point of consumption
3 Projects Where I Have Been Involved• Anaerobic Digestion in US and Asia• PV Solar in India• Combined Heat and Power (CHP) in US and Asia
Anaerobic Digestion: both developing & developed world Manure management or ag/food waste creating biogas Creating electric power Syndicating project Power purchase agreement Creating carbon credits to be securitized Interesting new strategy is to go to big strategics in various verticals such as food producers (already being done in EU and US)
