Online Tariff Calculator

 

The Online Tariff Calculator (available free of charge on this website) is a mini-financial model that is designed for screening power projects.

The OTC allows users to input the technical and financial specifications for a power project and determine a levelised tariff (c/kWh). Some guidance is provided on key inputs but users should note that assumptions can vary widely between projects. Users should also be aware that the OTC makes some simple assumptions regarding certain construction, operating and financing characteristics.

Based on IEC’s experience, the OTC generally delivers an answer that is accurate to within ±3% of the result that might be obtained using a more sophisticated financial cash flow model. Nevertheless, “real-life” projects are usually complex and users are advised that the OTC should be used for screening purposes only.

In addition to calculating a levelised tariff, the OTC can also be used to calculate annual fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and the effect of carbon taxes, fuel netback values and project returns.

Final investment decisions should be based on more detailed and project-specific models. If required, IEC can assist Clients with: (i) guidance on appropriate input assumptions & (ii) construction of detailed cash flow financial models that are tailored to specific projects.

For more detailed and specific advice and analysis (or even if you have some comments about how we can improve the OTC), please contact us at: jmorris@energyconsultants.com.au.
