Presentation energy factor

  1. 1. Low-cost SOFC power plant for distributed generationSergey ShubenkovDirector of “Energy Factor”
  2. 2. 1. Industry trendsDecentralized generation (DG) is growing much fasterthan the centralized generation industryRenewable and low-carbon generation technologies are main driversof DG growth though they still have a number of disadvantages?
  3. 3. 2. SolutionSmall (1 ÷ 15 kW) heat and power plant based on low-cost SOFC technology as common as personal car1. SOFC power plants are efficient (up to 60%),ecological, noiseless, cheap in maintenanceand long-living2. Key customers: householders, buildingdevelopers, utilities services enterprises,agricultural enterprises and telecom companies3. The envisioned power plant’s pay-off period is2-5 years depending on the type of usage andconfiguration
  4. 4. 3. MarketBasic market for SOFC-plants is global and fast-growing1. The market value for DG technologies based on fuel willreach $74.3 billion by 2015, with a CAGR of 18.2%.2. Global demand for fuel cell power plants is projected toreach $2.6 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 54.6%.3. Cost advantage is the key competitive factor on thestationary fuel cell market

  8. 8. 7. TeamThe project team has competence in technologydevelopment, production launch and new productsbrand-managementKey persons:Sevastyanov Vladimir, Senior Researcher, hasan experience of successful implementation ofinnovative industrial technologies in the USSRSergei Shubenkov, Project Director, has anexperience of small venture businessadministration and brand management
  9. 9. 8. Business modelWe plan to arrange joint venture with European orAmerican global partner to develop and promotesolutions for different geographical marketsThe targeted geographical markets are: North America, Germany,Russia, Eastern Europe, South Korea, India, TurkeyNF will develop technology up to pilot production and theninvest IP rights in joint ventureJoint venture will adjust the power plant to partner’s technologystandards, will adopt the product to specific regional requirementsand will produce and promote it using partner’s channels
