  • Optimal power flow solution considering wind integration using dance bee
           colony with dynamic step
    • Authors: Boubakeur Hadji, Belkacem Mahdad, Kamel Srairi, N. Mancer
      Pages: 133 - 152
      Abstract: This article investigates the adaptation and application of a flexible variant-based dance bee colony (DBC) with dynamic step size for solving the optimal power flow (OPF) in the presence of multi wind sources. The particularity of the proposed planning strategy is that the active and reactive power generated by the wind sources to be dynamically exchanged with the network are optimised individually and simultaneously in coordination with other control variables such as: voltage and reactive power of generating units, and tap transformers. Four objective functions have been considered, fuel cost, emission, power loss and voltage deviation. The effectiveness of the proposed OPF is validated on the IEEE 30-bus power system for different objective functions. Results found compared to recent techniques proves the ability of the proposed planning strategy-based DBC for solving practical OPF problems considering the integration of wind sources.

  • A methodology for the technical and financial implementation of
           photovoltaic technology in Choc√≥, Colombia
    • Authors: Hector David Agudelo Arias, Andrés Julián Aristizábal Cardona
      Pages: 153 - 169
      Abstract: This work shows a methodology for the implementation of photovoltaic (PV) technology in the Pacific region of Chocó, Colombia with a visual strategy. The results indicate that the energy that the photovoltaic generator must produce to supply 100% of the energy demand of a residential user stratum 1, must be 1,500 kWh/month; which represents an associated accumulated cost of USD 152 taking into account the application of the benefits of the Colombian Law 1715 (2014). The cost of the photovoltaic system under these conditions is USD 3,260/user. The average cost of energy for an initial grant of 70% and at a purchase price of the generated photovoltaic kWh equal to the kWh price of the grid (Fp = 1), is USD 0.075/kWh. We present also a schematic proposal of financing for interconnected photovoltaic systems using RETScreen™, taking into account sources of government funding.

  • Scheduling and optimisation of refinery operations under fluctuating
           bitumen demand
    • Authors: Mahesh S. Kumar, S.P. Anbuudayasankar, Sreeniketh Variyer
      Pages: 170 - 196
      Abstract: This study presents a new planning algorithm for petroleum products with fluctuating demand. The proposed algorithm is tested with analysing and forecasting bitumen sales of a refinery. The algorithm presented in this study utilises decomposition forecasting with scenario analysis and optimisation. We introduced a risk measure factor in the objective function that would help to forecast the sales with more accuracy. Scenario analysis is conducted to analyse the bitumen sales and production at different conditions. The proposed algorithm would generate a favourable refinery operation schedule that would enable the production and sales with more refinery margin. The planning algorithm is validated with a case study.
      Keywords: petroleum supply chain; PSC; forecast; scheduling; decomposition model

      Pages: 226 - 249
      Abstract: The objective of this study is the identification of specific national aspects that influence the alternative motor fuel usage. Empirical and statistical data have been used. For economical estimation of fuels, mathematical and economic modelling was used. World progress of society and the use of power resources trends have been shown. It is determined, that the last years' bioethanol production growth is almost stable. But biodiesel production has been slowing down. Efficiency of biofuels utilisation has been analysed. Biofuels production is most developed in countries which have favourable climate conditions, high developed agriculture, enough agricultural area and government support. General and specific barriers for biofuel usage have been examined. Regions of concentrated alternative fuels use have been revealed. Modern economic factors which influence on a production and applications of alternative fuels have been shown. Basic national features have been revealed.

  • How to make better energy policy decisions? The stock and flow
           perspective
    • Authors: Hassan Qudrat-Ullah, Muhammad Ashiq, Naveed Subhani
      Pages: 250 - 275
      Abstract: Energy policy issues and challenges abound. This paper addresses the energy policy as a complex, dynamic task whereby the planners and decision makers manage 'stocks' of limited resources. The stock and flow perspective provides a unique and powerful set of tools to better equip the policy decision makers to take on these challenges. By making use of various tools and techniques of system dynamics methodology such as causal loop diagrams, stock and flow diagrams, mathematical formulations, and structure-behaviour graphs of various energy system processes, it is shown how the stock and flow perspective can effectively address energy policy issues. With an understanding of the physics of underlying feedback loop structures of an energy system, and structure-behaviour graphs of various energy system processes including energy demand, policy incentives and inter-fuel substitution mechanism, and energy supply, the energy policy decision makers are expected to develop insights and make better decisions.

  • Influence of fiscal regime adjustment on investment climate of marginal
           oil fields in Malaysia: a scenario analysis
    • Authors: Abdulsalam Mas'ud, Nor Aziah Abdul Manaf, Natrah Saad
      Pages: 276 - 291
      Abstract: Since 1970s, oil and gas sector in Malaysia has been undergoing series of fiscal regime adjustments. The rationale of which was connected to the country's desire to improve the investment climate of its remaining oil and gas fields. Recently in 2010, the fiscal changes were made for marginal fields. These new fiscal changes resulted in increase in tax incentives and change in fiscal arrangement from production sharing contract to risk service contract. In this study, a comparison of the marginal fields' investment climate under old and new fiscal regimes was conducted using nine different scenarios relating to oil prices and reserve levels. The results using investor's net present value and internal rate of return revealed that the new fiscal regime would likely render investment climate more favourable in the majority of the scenarios - with the exception to those relating to high oil prices, which fiscal regime under production sharing contract would likely be more favourable. The policy implication is that offering windfall incentive or increasing field's contractors' remuneration would likely improve the attractiveness of the new fiscal regime under risk service contract. However, the caveat is that considerations should be given to the assumptions employed in the study while applying its findings for a decision.

  • Enhancing low-carbon economic growth by renewable energy uptake in
           countries with per capita gross domestic product between 10 and 20 kUSD
    • Authors: Abdulsalam Mas'ud, Nor Aziah Abdul Manaf, Natrah Saad
      Pages: 292 - 318
      Abstract: The study investigates how countries with per capita GDP between 10 and 20 kUSD (further referred to as middle-income countries) should shape domestic economies to enhance low-carbon economic growth and how low-carbon transition can be eventually turned to opportunity. The research starts from comparing and analysing middle-income economies, especially their CO<SUB align="right">2 emissions indicators. Also relationships between CO<SUB align="right">2 emissions and income for 138 countries obtained by applying regression analysis are constructed and evaluated. Outcomes from these analyses are configured in the form of climate policy. The proposed climate policy involves a set of key low-carbon technologies and affordable assets fitting the needs of middle-income countries. Besides, the climate policy aims to create the enabling business environment relying on economic, societal, regulatory and political enablers. The resulting economic system facilitates clean renewable energy uptake and triggers sustainable economic development finally potentially leading to low-carbon economic growth. The study emphasises that by making effective technologies and assets choices and reducing system costs, middle-income countries might be able to deliver affordable energy, thus driving industrialisation and finally enhancing economic growth. The proposed economic instruments can ease investments in capital intensive renewable energy infrastructures primarily by increasing capital availability, managing risks and reducing interest rates which are all typically unfavourable in middle-income countries.

  • Renewable energy and sustainable economic growth of Rwanda: energy
           policy implications
    • Authors: Michel Rwema, Wojciech M. Budzianowski
      Pages: 319 - 330
      Abstract: Over the last ten years, about 70% of the people in Rwanda live without access to electricity. Currently, biomass dominates energy source with 85% of Rwanda's total energy supply. Consequently, around 90% of the rural populations majorly rely on biomass for cooking and lighting among other uses. The use of renewable energy is low with geothermal and wind energy sources presently unexploited. This paper assesses the renewable energy status and its contribution towards the economic growth of Rwanda. It stresses energy policy insights and implications for sustainability. It was noted that total renewable energy increased by 144% within the first period of the Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy (EDPRS I). This was due to several measures and strategies undertaken. Measures included promoting the use of small and mini-grids in power generation. The authors recommend the government to allocate necessary resources to sustain the renewable energy strategies.

  • A service-based business model for rapid diffusion of solar water
           heaters in India
    • Authors: Auroshis Rout, Sudhansu S. Sahoo, Sanju Thomas, Shinu M. Varghese
      Pages: 331 - 347
      Abstract: Commercialisation of decentralised renewable energy products is a key challenge across the globe. This paper proposes an innovative business model to handle this issue. When this model was applied to a solar water heater along with porter's five force approach, business opportunity was found. Though solar water heater is expensive, it is a technically and economically viable option. The unique selling proposition of this innovative business model is formation of a new service based company which will invest in installation and maintenance of solar water heaters and collect money from the end users on a monthly basis just like electricity bill. The service is being provided at 10% discount rate to electricity, in case used for heating water. So the main issue behind adoption of solar water heater, high capital cost has been resolved. This model can be considered as a platform for energy policy makers in developing countries like India.

  • Influence of technological improvement and adoption rate of biogas
           industry on greenhouse gas footprint of the energy system of Poland
           between 2000 and 2100
    • Authors: Auroshis Rout, Sudhansu S. Sahoo, Sanju Thomas, Shinu M. Varghese
      Pages: 348 - 368
      Abstract: Biogas industry has complex value chain which increases its life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint and reduces energy return on invested (ERoI). Therefore, the effect of biogas industry on GHG footprint of energy systems needs to be well understood. This paper investigates the influence of technological improvement and adoption rate of biogas industry on GHG footprint of the Polish energy system by using a scenario analysis from 2000 to 2100. The main findings reveal that today the size of the biogas industry is too small to affect Poland's GHG emissions. However, in the next few decades, along with growing biogas production capacity, this influence might become more pronounced if GHG footprint of biogas industry is successfully reduced.
