Sign Up – IPP Financial Model
Welcome to the IEC IPP Financial Model which is a mini financial model that is designed for screening IPP power project economics.
The Model allows Users to quickly input technical, fuel, O&M and financial values for any power project and determine the levelized tariff (ie. the fixed price per MWh that the plant would need to charge over the project life), in order to meet the target hurdle rate.
In addition to calculating a tariff, the Model can also be used to calculate annual fuel consumption, carbon emissions, fuel netback values and project returns. The Model is very useful for quickly determining the impact of changes in heat rate, fuel cost, capex, taxes, debt, etc. on project returns or tariffs.
Based on our experience, the Model generally delivers an answer that is accurate to within a few percent of the result that might be obtained using a more sophisticated financial cash flow model.
To use the Model today, sign up for a free 7-day trial period. You will be asked to enter your payment details but will only be charged if you do not cancel during the trial period. After 7 days, you will automatically be billed AS149 + GST (if applicable) for a 1 year subscription.
In 2015, upon signing the Paris Climate Agreement, all nations around the world set themselves the goal of limiting global warming to below 2.0°C (preferably 1.5°C) compared to pre-industrial levels. Climate scientists now almost universally agree that once the 1.5°C limit is reached, our planet’s climate will experience irreversible and catastrophic changes. Humans have not faced such an existential threat for 75,000 years (when we nearly became extinct).
The IPCC Special Report on Global Warming concluded that the planet’s atmosphere can absorb no more than 420 gigatonnes (Gt) of additional CO2, if we are to stay below the 1.5°C threshold. Around 42Gt of CO2 is currently emitted globally each year (equal to 1332 tonnes per second) by human activity, which means that the 1.5°C budget is expected to be exhausted by 2028. Once we hit that threshold, there is no going back.
