Oct 13 : Transnational transmission: Lot of uncertainty

There is a huge amount of uncertainty over cross border import and export of power to and from India.
8Doing a forecast to the year 2040 is fraught with risks as many hydel projects planned now may not see the light of day.
8Consequently, three different import-export scenarios have been drawn up
8For those interested in big hydel projects within and outside of India and consequent HVDC opportunities, the report makes for interesting reading
8The interconnection of electrical grids through high voltage transmission lines across international boundaries is a common practice all over the world, with the largest such grid in Europe transmitting as much as 670 GW of power.
8The Indian subcontinental grid has a lot of potential but how much of it is eventually utilized remains a moot point.

Oct 11 : Are capacity availability figures "gamed"-II: Full proof procedure not in place yet

Gaming of capacity is a common phenomenon and surprisingly very little is being done about it
8The Indian Electricity Grid Code (IEGC) has specific directions to keep gaming under control but surprisingly the exact procedure for it has not been spelt out.
Questions that are now raised are:
8Who can ask for an availability test? And how is to be intimated?
8Should there be surprise checks?
8What should be the periodicity of such checks?
8What should be the duration?
8Who should check the data, and what if the data is manipulated?
8What is a successful or an unsuccessful test?
8What kind of penalties are to be imposed and what should be the extent of the penalty and what is the procedure for imposing such penalties?

Oct 11 : Are capacity availability figures "gamed"-I: Many think that is the case

Many generating stations remain unscheduled due to high cost and this is likely to increase in the future with increasing renewable addition.
8There are gas based units with different type of fuels and they are scheduled separately for each fuel, while there is no offtake scheduled on certain fuel due to high cost.
8Are some of the plants gaming the availability declarations?
8That seems to be the case, it is learned

Oct 11 : Landmark judgement: Relief for generators

A landmark Supreme Court judgement last week is likely to come as a big relief to distribution companies
8The judgement has made it clear that all costs of coal up to the point of the project site have to be included and the Calorific Value of the coal has to be taken at the project-site.
8Different generators have different agreements but the core of the argument made by the Supreme Court will hold for everyone.
8Then again, the cost of washing the coal will not be borne by the generator, the ruling says.
8Succour can be had from many clarificatory points made in the judgement.

Oct 11 : Has the floor been reached in renewable power tariffs?

Wind and solar power tariffs have fallen rapidly and are now converging around a lower plateau.
8Wind tariff in India touched a low of Rs.2.64 per kWh in the second wind auction conducted by the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI)
8The rapid fall is evident from the fact that the tariff discovered is much lower than at first wind auction concluded at Rs. 3.46 per kWh in February this year.
8The latest wind tariff rate also comes on the back of solar tariffs witnessing a record low of Rs. 2.44 per unit in May for 500MW in Rajasthan
8But the rate later firmed up to Rs. 2.65 per unit in the September auction by Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam.
8Is the firming up an indication that tariffs have reached a floor level and it will be difficult to go below this point?

Oct 11 : Will gas-based power be viable ever-III: Is to possible at all?

Latest projections are now showing that gas based power plants can only be viable with an adequate carbon tax on emissions.
8The levelized tariffs of high efficiency gas turbines in Asia can match coal based power but only with a hefty carbon tax.
8But even with such a tax, if the current global demand-supply gap evaporates, the landed price of LNG is likely to shoot up, making gas-fired power unviable.
8The government is now thinking of bundling gas based generation with renewable power, as was evident from the Petroleum Minister speech at the CERA conference this week.
8But for that to be viable, concerted government action will be needed.
8Will that happen?

Oct 11 : Will gas-based power be viable ever-II: Big Oil, Big Research, Big Government call the shots

In the last season, projections were that the LNG over supply situation will continue till 2025
8This season, the projections are that demand will match supply by 2021-22.
8Such a development can be nothing but bad news for the gas-based power sector. If LNG prices move up, the price of LNG dependent gas based power will go even higher in the merit order power market in India, making it that much more difficult to get the current stranded capacity restarted. The fact that coal based power plants can be retrofitted to act as low base load and peaking stations is a detriment already but higher price of gas will kill the hope for a revival of stranded gas based power projects in the country.
8All these frequent shift in projects are triggered by through subtle projections let loose by biggest LNG suppliers in the world, and among them are Shell, Exxon-Mobil, BP and Total.
8Research agencies are given an avalanche of data and they then fall in line subsequently.
8BP, for example, has an inordinate amount of clout with Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA), one of the world's best recognized research outfits in the oil & gas sector, based out of Oxford, not far from BP's headquarters. CERA works with IHS, the world's largest consulting company, and the two together form a formidable "intellectual force" and a dissemination point that triggers off a chain of supporting reports which eventually impacts sentiments and prices.
8Some years ago, CERA was funded by BP to bring out a report on the Indian oil & gas sector wherein it drew up a road map of how big investments can make India nearly self sufficient in gas. The story, however, turned out to be different. While investments are pumped into the KG Basin, there isn't enough reserves, unlike what CERA had projected, to absorb funds beyond a point.
8The usual modus operandi of Big Research is to push a lot of information upfront to dazzle the audience. No one does the assessment of all of they said a year later, when the the ground reality is different.  For then it is time for another set of new data points to emerge. The razzle-dazzle continues in what is a seemingly unending cycle.
8Big bang events like the one hosted in India by CERA this week is nothing but a lot of razzmatazz put together by Big Oil, Big Research and Big Government.
8The oil and gas sector is, sometimes, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Oct 11 : Will gas-based power be viable ever-I: Point of inflection moves back to 2021-22

The global oil & gas markets have become more volatile and consequently demand-supply and price projections are also changing every quarter.
8For some, this is the season to be bullish on the oil & gas sector, particularly LNG.
8The current thinking is that new LNG supply in 2016 and 2017 is being absorbed by the market and LNG is not in oversupply. This is reportedly evident from the fact that LNG spot prices are up in 2017, breaking a two year trend.
8Then again, European storage is viewed as the dumping ground for any surplus LNG cargos but fresh data shows that storage withdrawals have been higher, implying there is no excess LNG in the market.
8Floating Storage Regasification Units have moved beyond small new country markets and into expanding bigger demand markets, such as Pakistan and Bangladesh. thereby enlarging the market for LNG.
8The big changer is the increased demand for gas from China which plans to increase natural gas to 10% of its energy mix.
8If demand indeed catches up with supply, the price of LNG is likely to remain high and this will have implications for the power sector.

Oct 06 : Gas based power in India: Last and final call!

Now that renewable energy capacity is surging, it is an opportunity for gas-based power plants, with their ability to ramp up much faster than coal-fired stations, to plug the gap in supply when renewable power gets switched off in the evening.
8And this can well be the last and final opportunity for use of gas in power plants in India. if the bus is missed, then it will be missed forever.
8All kinds of alternatives to fill in the supply gap is being though of, including pumped storage plants, batteries, compressed or even liquid air storage systems and flywheels.
8But all of them are not capable to taking on challenge at hand. At least not in the immediate future.
8There is the real threat however of ordinary coal-based power plants to be used as peaking load stations with some equipment modifications. What is being investigated now are innovation in coal based power plants for quick start up, quick ramp up and ramp down of generation and sustained low load operation.
8A coal-based thermal power plant will have go through a burner upgrade, use new materials to handle thermal stresses in the superheater and reheater tubes and stronger monitoring of turbine blade vibrations and air distribution in the boiler to take care of exigencies.
8The way out is for a lot of spare coal based thermal capacity to develop a flexible generation service, by using what will be a pre-defined ramp up and ramp down rate over a sustained period.
8A new thermal power generation policy matrix will have to be worked out.
8In case thermal power plants are able to take the load, along with demand-side changes and the necessary grid modification needed to take on the surge in renwable power, gas-based power plants may become redundant on account of high cost of gas.
8If that happens, that be the end of the story for gas-based power plants. This will also mean that gas suppliers will have to look at other sectors for uplift of gas. It will also significantly change gas demand projections in India.
8If coal based thermal capacity is unable to take the load, gas power will be relevant until affordable alternatives are developed.

Oct 06 : The hydrogen revolution-IV: When will it reach critical mass?

The one problem for a hydrogen-based mobility revolution is the high cost of transportation and dispension of the fuel.
8Many of the initial hydrogen stations were deployed at about $2 million to $3 million per station. Most government and industry consortium estimates suggest that average cost will drop over time to more like $1 million per station and potentially as low as $0.5 million for relatively small stations.
8In Japan and the US, governments are part funding these stations.
8By the end of 2016 there were about 4,000 fuel cell cars, plus several hundred fuel cell buses, with more than 150 hydrogen stations.
8Considering all that, a Hydrogen Council report indicates that the combined tally of goals and announcements by governments could reach about 3,000 total hydrogen stations and support a total of 2 million hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in the 2025 time frame.
8The same report estimates that government plans for 2,000 hydrogen stations in Europe, 800 in Asia, and 600 in the United States would be enough to help enable the fuel cell vehicle market with a self-sustaining hydrogen fueling infrastructure.
8Alternatives continue to emerge in terms of the hydrogen station footprint and its revenue streams. Existing gasoline and diesel stations can lease space to hydrogen station developers, generating income for themselves, as well as potentially reducing costs for the hydrogen providers relative to developing entirely new fuel station sites.
8Many of the early stations are indeed located at existing gas stations.
8Japan has an ambitious target of going all hydrogen instead of all electric with its mobility revolution.
8It is time for India too to look at the hydrogen economy with more seriousness than it has done so far

Oct 06 : The hydrogen revolution-III: Aiming at high mileage

Oct 06 : The hydrogen revolution-II: Will it be gas or renewables?

A lot of how the cost of hydrogen would develop will depend upon what kind of fuel source that is used.
8Hydrogen can be made using gas for steam reforming or through normal power through the electrolysis route.
8If renewable energy is used as a source of power, then greenhouse emission levels can in fact be nil.
8Also if the cost of renewable energy used to make hydrogen comes down, as it can during the day, the eventual cost of manufacturing hydrogen can be even lower, at $3/kg
8Not just that, hydrogen can also be a power storage fuel for renewable energy, thereby enhancing the uptake of renewables on the grid. Hydrogen fueling stations could then provide energy storage and revenue for grid utilities.
8The point to note is that even if gas is used as fuel, the lifecycle carbon emission levels are lower than conventional cars.

Oct 06 : The hydrogen revolution-I: It is getting competitive

Indian Oil Corporation has been experimenting with hydrogen vehicles for over a decade but that was at a time when the cost of hydrogen fuel was far too prohibitive
8But the technology is now maturing and there is increasing talk of hydrogen vehicles competing with their conventional counterparts as early as 2025.
8The economics are slowly but inexorably turning out to be favourable.
8A basic calculation of the fueling costs, on a per-kilometer basis, puts hydrogen prices into context for a potential fuel cell vehicle consumer. A future hydrogen price of $4 per kilogram is equivalent to about 3.7 cents per kilometer for existing hydrogen cars now produced by the likes of Toyota, Hyundai, Renault and others.
8But at a current  hydrogen cost of about $10 per kilogram results in a cost per kilometer that is 2.5 times greater. Comparable conventional cars cost about 5.8 to 6.9 cents per kilometer to fuel, based on 80 cents per liter ($3 per gallon) gasoline, meaning the fuel cell vehicles are 37%–47% less expensive per kilometer to fuel at the expected future price of hydrogen. The point to also note is that fuel cell vehicles are significantly more efficient than conventional engines.
8The cost advantage remains true as long as the price of hydrogen is roughly $4 per kilogram, or more generally stays within 30%–40% of the price-per-unit energy of gasoline excluding fuel taxes.

Oct 06 : City Gas Distribution Companies: Under electric threat

The website carries here the growth story of a non-metro city gas distribution company, whose profits have swelled on the back of rising sales and a monopoly distribution mandate.
8But the city gas distribution story has not been fully written out yet.
8The need for a subsidy on supply of CNG when Euro VI fuels are available will come under debate when looked at from the point of view of harmful greenhouse emissions.
8Then again, the relentless advance of renewable energy solutions can make households go all electric instead of replying on gas.
8If a five year horizon is taken into account, the future of city gas distribution becomes a big imponderable.

Oct 05 : Disruptive technology-I: Utilities are struggling to cope

Renewable energy is disrupting electricity markets worldwide.
8The pace of this change has surprised almost everyone and indeed would have been difficult to imagine just a few years ago.
8Crucially, renewables need only capture a relatively small market share for disruption to occur, and to continue. While it may take decades yet for renewables to become the dominant form of generation globally, their presence today is permanent and their advance inevitable.
8By way of recent example, in 2016 Germany — the fourth-largest economy globally — saw two of its biggest companies, the power utilities E.ON and RWE, voluntarily break themselves up.
8Those moves came in response to a transformation that is reshaping the power-generation sector almost everywhere and wreaking havoc among utilities that have arrived late to this conversion. Germany is of special significance since the nation pioneered Energiewende, a policy shift toward a low-carbon economy that is now being adopted globally.
8From Europe to Asia, from the Americas to Africa, wholesale electricity prices are being pushed down by the rise of renewable generation, which has no fuel costs and whose developers can now consistently outbid fossil fuel-based generation.
8This report documents the gathering momentum of this trend, and how the impact of renewables on electricity prices is a key driver of this change.

Oct 05 : Going all electric by 2030: Can distribution companies fill in the gap?

Can power distribution companies provide opportunities for charging electric vehicles in the future?
8By 2030, a city like Delhi could require around 300,000 fast chargers, presuming 30 percent EV penetration. Around 12 percent of these would be taxis, the primary users of fast chargers.
8Meeting this infrastructure need could call for an investment of around USD 1 billion to 1.5 billion.
8However, the current TCO economics in India are not profitable for a fast charging infrastructure provider.
8In addition to the standard business costs like investments in fixed assets and operating costs, the continuous evolution in battery cost, driving range, charging technology, charger costs drive the economics of the fast charging infrastructure business. Taking the various factors into account, an analysis suggests that it may be difficult for fast chargers in India to be economically viable before 2025.

8Digitization, increasing automation and new business models have revolutionized other industries, and the automotive industry will be no exception to such a revolution.
8The Indian automotive industry has already started to experience the effects of this global disruption.
8Currently, battery price in India is between US$ 275–300 per kWh but this is set to fall dramatically in the next  four years to around $ 100-150/kwh
8An Indian automobile manufacturer has already cut down the charging time of its EVs by 75 percent—in three years, the charging time fell from six to nine hours earlier to barely 75 to 90 minutes. However, this is still high for commercial end-use applications. The automotive industry has already seen technology evolve from AC slow chargers to DC fast and ultra-fast chargers today.
8The average driving range is expected to go up from the current 300 km to 500 km over a period of time.
8Most markets worldwide have been unable to grow infrastructure to keep up with their EV aspirations. To fill this gap, different business models are evolving worldwide across the automotive value chain.
8But how prepared are the stakeholders for this disruption?
8And how can they ride this change to expand into newer areas?
8How much extra power will be needed if India goes all electric by 2030?

Oct 04 : Adani Group's coal mining venture in Australia: In trouble

Is the Adani group in serious trouble over its mining venture in Australia?
8An investigation seems to point in that direction, where a web of investment companies are used to ensure a zero tax regime for its Abbot Point Coal Terminal
8The almost entirely debt funded terminal is running at half its capacity, so it is generating enough cash.
8The only way out is to get its controversial coal mining project -- known as the Carmichael mining project -- going but then that has now run into both environmental and financial trouble
8Has Adani chewed off more than it can digest?

Oct 04 : New power generation model: Flexibility is the name of the game

A theoretical power generation model is drawn up in an environment where there is a preponderance of renewable energy.
8The idea is to look at flexible models, where base cost is made up of cheap renewable power. There is an additional layer of must-run CHP. In this environment, the midday power price in sunny countries and windy days is zero
8There is a dependence on flexible power then to meet non-sunny and non-windy days.
8In this situation, there will have to be a centrally designed capacity market with regulated returns
8Then there are centrally provisioned interconnections, with regulated returns
8Curtailment of power production is a key ingredient
8The other option is a competitive, technology-neutral, liquid markets across location and time with flexibility costs charged to those who cause them. Here the cost of stability-related ancillary services borne by TSOs and DSOs.

8Within these parameters, there is a diversity of rotor diameters depending upon wind speed.
8All offshore wind turbines are in the range of 7-8 MW but higher ranges are to be introduced.
8How long is it going to take before offshore opportunities are investigated by Indian companies?
8Is there a need for investor friendly offshore wind energy policy for India?

Oct 04 : CIL coal is far more competitive than Indonesian coal-I: How is it calculated?

Coal India Ltd claims that its coal is significantly more competitive than Indonesian coal
8The pithead price of CIL coal of G12 grade was compared with FOB price of Indonesian coal of 3400 Kcal/kg.
8In other words, CIL coal is among the cheapest in the world.
8And this does not include ocean freight, port handling charges, CVD, clean environment cess, excise duty and CST/VAT
8The pithead CIL price was found to cheaper than FOB price. In fact the average  cost of production for CIL is USD 16 per tonne @ Rs.68 per USD. This includes high cost underground coal comprising 6% of production.

Oct 03 : Uniform tariff comes under fire from buyers-I: Rates to more than double for some users

GAIL's proposal for a unified tariff of Rs 68.mmbtu on GCV basis -- with 3% year-on-year escalation to be effective from April 1, 2018 -- for its cross-country pipelines has been greeted by a howl of protest from existing pipeline users.
8The gas major's proposal will almost triple the transportation tariff for the Dahej-Uran-Dhabol pipeline
8The price increase will be equally harsh for buyers out of the HVJ-GREP-DVPL pipeline
8Rates of other existing cross-country pipelines will go up too.
8What GAIL has proposed is to unify a total of seven cross-country pipelines but that wouldn't take up the tariff rate by much but for the inclusion of the controversial Jagdishpur-Haldia-Bokaro-Dhamra Pipeline (JHBD), whose tariff rate, if independently calculated, come to a high Rs 173/mmbtu.
8The unified tariff rate will bring down the rate of transportation of the JHBD from Rs 173/mmbtu to a mere Rs 68/mmbtu.
8Clearly, there is a tradeoff from the unified tariff mechanism: existing buyers of gas from currently operational pipelines will pay much more whereas those dependent on the under-construction JHBD will gain the most

Oct 03 : Uniform tariff comes under fire from buyers-II: It is an attempt to make the JHBD pipeline viable, says critics

The government, along with GAIL, seems to be trying very hard to make the Jagdishpur-Haldia-Bokaro-Dhamra Pipeline (JHBD) a viable proposition.
8To begin with, the pipeline has elicited a viability gap funding of a massive Rs 5176 crore.
8A specific directive has also been given to the PNGRB under Section 42 of the PNGRB Act -- which allows the government to issue directives to the regulator -- not to allow any duplicate or dedicated pipelines to be built to the Dhamra LNG terminal, which will be source of gas for the JHBD pipeline.
8In the normal course, such a directive is not needed as there is an already existent due process inside the PNGRB to avoid duplication of pipelines.
8One of the reasons why the JHBP pipeline needs to be built -- over and above the fact that it marches through some of the most populous parts of India, thereby providing impetus to building city gas distribution centres and reviving defunct fertilizer plants -- is also to make the Adani group promoted LNG terminal viable. IOC and GAIL have also been brought in as stakeholders -- wth 39% and 11% shareholding in the Dhamra LNG terminal while Adani will own 50%..
8Without the JHBD pipeline, a terminal cannot come up in Dhamra.
