SESSION1_Identification of the mediterranean solar plan (imsp); an europeaid initiative under the union for the mediterranean (uf m) (albrecht kaupp, med emip)

  1. 1. Euro-MediterraneanEnergy Market Integration Project Germany France Lebanon Albrecht Kaupp Team Leader Belgium Identification of the "Mediterranean Solar Plan“ (IMSP) An EUROPEAID Initiative under the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) This project is funded by the European Union 1
  2. 2. MED-EMIPMED-EMIP has prepared in July 2008 a Library of 44EE and RE recommended measures based on ownrecommendations and feedback from partners. Thisbooklet with explanations and justification “WHY” iscontinuously expanded based on feedback.All project ideas are covered by MED-EMIP mandate,but cannot be implemented by MED-EMIP alone.Some recommendations are already implemented byothers, some will need additional funding. This project is funded by the European Union 2
  3. 3. Present MED-EMIP events -25. Review of issues and advise for DNAs for COP 15preparation in Copenhagen, (August, on demand). 6. Preparation of National budget allocation efficiencycharts for the energy sector (ongoing three workshops peryear) 7. Preparation of sample contracts for export of electricityinto the EC. In cooperation with RCREEE (Law firm Kuhbier,Brussels) This project is funded by the European Union 4
  4. 4. Background of MSPThe EuroMed Energy Priority Action Plan drawn up atthe Limassol Conference for the period 2008-2013features the promotion of renewable and sustainableenergy, as well as improvements to the institutional,legislative and political framework that governs thedevelopment and dissemination of RE technologies.In this context, the "Mediterranean Solar Plan" hasbeen declared by Ministers and Heads of State andGovernments as one of the key projects of the UfM. This project is funded by the European Union 6
  5. 5. Why, how and when are the EC- Consultations take place ?This project is fundedby the European Union 7
  6. 6. Why “Identification” ?The ambitious goals of the MSP is 20 000 MW installedcapacity of mostly thermal/photovoltaic solar as well as windpower plants by 2020 at estimated investment costs of Euro60 000 Million for the electricity generation, transmission anddistribution infrastructure.This objective cannot be achieved without large private sectorinvestments;Such investments are only forthcoming if terms and conditionsof domestic sales and/or export to the EU-27 are commerciallyattractive to investors. This project is funded by the European Union 8
  7. 7. How to go about it ?. • Make an informed judgement by consultation with key players about how the regional policy landscape (in the MPCs and the EU) presents obstacles and opportunities for achieving the objectives of the Plan. • Ensure that the positions of the countries are taken into account during the formulation of a MSP. • Give clear recommendations as to how a "Mediterranean Solar Plan“ may be developed and effectively implemented in the region, including how best to ensure the sustainability of the projects benefits and attractiveness to private investors. This project is funded by the European Union 9
  8. 8. When are the consultations taking place ? • Both experts Mr D.Levy and Mr A.Gazzo will visit MPCs February/March/April 2009 for consultation • Report will be finalized June 2009 • Recommendations may be presented at the MENAREC meeting October 2009 in Morocco • Further deliberations will follow how to improve the EU and regional policy landscape towards achieving the ambitious goal of 20 000 MW installed capacity by 2020.This project is fundedby the European Union 10
  9. 9. Two interesting issues at the core of the subject matterThis project is fundedby the European Union 11
  10. 10. Issue 1: Should partners consume their ownexpensive solar electricity and/or lobby for export The average system tariff structure or feed-in-tariff in €Cents/kWh is not in favor of “home” consumption Energy Region EU-27 Efficiency Households Solar PV Solar PV Grid Feed Battery -10 3 3 7 7 (15.3) 26 4.4 (9) 14 17 26 26 40 40 60 Wi EU-27 Industry Solar Thermal This project is funded by the European Union 12
  11. 11. PV electricity generation costs• Pay $ 4500/kWp for PV, and ask a bank to finance it for 20 years at 5 %. Explanations• Install it at a location, Libya, where the average yield may be 1800 kWh per year.• Calculate your annual payment for 20 years to the bank as 1.05 ∗ (1.05 − 1) 20 $ 361 = ∗ 4500 1.05 − 1 20 Your generation cost excluding O&M costs is 361/1800 = 20 $Cents per kWh This project is funded by the European Union 13
  12. 12. Wind power plant electricity costs• Pay $ 2000/kW for wind power plant and ask a bank to finance it for 20 years at 5 %. Explanations• Install it at a location, Egypt, where the average yield may be 3500 kWh per year.• Calculate your annual payment for 20 years to the bank as 1.05 ∗ (1.05 − 1) 20 $ 160 = ∗ 2000 1.05 − 1 20 Your generation cost excluding O&M costs is 160/3500 = 4.6 $Cents per kWh This project is funded by the European Union 14
  13. 13. Options to support an RE Market Feed-in-Tariffs ( To sustain an RE market ) Fast 100% deprecation (To kick-start an RE market) Earnings from Carbon credits (insufficient for CSP/PV ) “Green Certificates” (insufficient for CSP/PV) Tax rebates (for residential and small business)This project is fundedby the European Union 15
  14. 14. Issue 2: Level of socially acceptable cross subsidy in % on average system tariffs to support feed-in tariffs or similar incentives in favor of solar electricity. Are cross subsidies of 1% or 5% or even 10% acceptable ?This project is fundedby the European Union 16
  15. 15. PV Latest Electricity Tariff Survey by MED-ENEC CSP WindThis project is fundedby the European Union 17
  16. 16. Thank you for your attention www.medemip.euWe pick and rate all colorsof energy in the regionsuch as solar, wind, hydro,coal, oil shale and gas. This project is funded by the European Union 18
