Resilient Energy

Stephen Crosher, CCO

• Introduction to X-wind Power

• The issues

• Resilient energy system

• Project Partners

• Application in the developing world

slide2

Introduction to X-Wind

An 80kW vertical axis wind turbine

• Low, Low maintenance

• Small footprint

• Low noise

Class leading economics, 200MWh on typical site

slide3

The issues

• Island communities

or remote communities / businesses

• Long distances for power lines

• Vulnerable to faults/ interruption

• Takes time to fix

slide4

The issues

• … its annoying, ruins your Xmas dinner

• Can present health risks

• Adversely affects businesses

• Compensation costs

• Costs and CO2 of standby generators …. becomes political

slide5

The issues

You need energy & batteries …

…. BUT …. Its all expensive

You need a way of creating value

from your all assets.

slide6

Solution partners

The generator provides value through energy off-set and incentives such as feed-in tariffs

Value is created from batteries when they are used, the more they are used the more value created

  • Ideally: Payments for
  • Resilience provided
  • Stand-by & utilisation
  • Grid upgrade avoidance
  • Grid balancing / fault limiting
    • Needs fast reaction times
  • Arbitrage
slide7

The solutions

  • Battery characteristics:
  • Long life, 10,000+ cycles
  • Variable power vs. energy
  • Low LCOS
  • Rapid reaction time

Expandable

slide8

The solutions

  • System characteristics:
  • Generation
  • Storage
  • Expandable
  • Ability to predict
    • local supply and demand
    • Weather
    • Potential for grid faults
  • - Ability to measure flows to realise revenues
  • Community Energy Scotland:
  • Access to communities
  • Understanding of issues
slide9

The solutions

  • Benefits:
  • Ability to ‘island’ and reconnect
  • Stand-by operating reserve payments
  • Grid-balancing payments
  • Grid-upgrade avoidance payments
  • Arbitrage [trading]
  • Improved voltages
  • Improved frequencies
  • Improved thermal constraints
  • Local system resilience
  • lower compensation provision
  • Health
  • Business
  • Capital expenditure generating revenues
slide10

The solutions

  • Application in developing markets:
  • 1.4 bn people off-grid, no power [world bank]
  • 1.1+ bn people on weak grids [economist]
  • 2.8bn people rely on solid fuels for cooking
    • Estimated to kill 1.5m people p/a
  • 2,000 off-grid communities in N Canada alone [diesel generation]
  • UK only 16% of DNO quotes for grid connection progress to completion [grid constrained, high costs]
slide11

The solutions

  • 2.5+ bn People need power with:
  • Good power quality
    • [or things do not work properly]
  • Resilience
  • Ability to loose grid and reconnect [islanding]
  • Ability to trade energy
  • Ability to manage changing demands over time
  • Improving health, quality of life & prosperity
  • Lowering CO2
slide12

The solutions

  • Partnerships:
  • Once the integrated system is complete we would look for project partners to apply the technology in those places of greatest need.
