I presented my paper; A Financial Worksheet For Computing the Levelized Cost of Wind Electricity (US$/MWh, SEK/MWh, €/MWh) Stored in a Hydrogen Storage System, at the International Solar Energy Society’s SOLAR WORLD CONFERENCE 2003, 14-19 June 2003 in Göteborg, Sweden. https://tinyurl.com/kx8jkxs

CONSULTATIONS IN CHICAGO

 

If you did not have not have time to meet with me in Göteborg, Sweden or if you did not attend the Solar World Conference 2003, you can arrange an appointment at my office in Chicago.

 

Chicago has great hotels and restaurants. It is convenient to fly to Chicago from all over the planet.

 

I am a fee based consulting energy economist in private practice.

A FINANCIAL WORKSHEET FOR COMPUTING THE LEVELIZED COST OF WIND ELECTRICITY (US$/MWh, SEK/MWh, €/MWh) STORED IN A HYDROGEN STORAGE SYSTEM

M N Stavy
Consulting Energy Economist, Principal, Chicago, United States

Wind is an intermittent source of electricity. If, in the future, wind electricity could be economically stored, it would increase the market value of the wind electricity. This increase in the value of wind energy could be realized in:

  1. Capacity payments.
  2. No out of balance payments for the transmission of wind electricity.
  3. Extra revenue earned by selling the wind electricity at the premium price in a time of day pricing tariff.

In the electric energy storage cycle, a Hydrogen Storage System (HSS) must first use the wind electricity to produce hydrogen in order to charge (fill) the hydrogen storage facility, second, store the hydrogen until the energy is needed and third, discharge (empty the hydrogen from the storage facility) and convert it back into electricity for sale to the grid. This paper presents a worksheet that computes the levelized cost of stored wind energy (US$/MWh, SEK/MWh, €/MWh). The worksheet compares the stored wind electricity cost with the time of day premium price.

This paper discusses the technical, financial and economic principles underlying the levelized cost method of computing the cost of wind electricity stored in a HSS. Topics include the electric energy storage cycle (charging, storage, discharge), hydrogen storage verse pumped storage (and verse other future electric storage technologies), the levelized cost method, storage cycle efficiency, depreciation, cost of capital, fixed and variable operating and maintenance costs.

The paper includes the worksheet, "Levelized Cost of Wind Electricity Stored in a 1 MW Hydrogen Storage System". Benchmark values are for a US (Chicago, IL) and a Swedish model plant.

US$ Results: $68.32/MWh stored levelized cost with Benchmark values; 365 storage cycles per yr, 8 hrs discharge per cycle, 75% efficiency, $35/MWh wind electricity cost, $59,700/MWh HSS cost, 10.0% interest, 25 yr physical life, 1% of HSS capital cost fixed OM cost, $2.00/MWh variable OM cost.
