Renewable Energy Resources in Oman It has further been assumed that the efficiency is 38%. The data for this calculation is based on World Bank Energy Unit Discussion Paper: 'Technical and Economic Assessment: Off-grid, Mini-Grid and Grid Electrification Technologies' from November 2005, Ref /21/. Prices are updated to 2007 level with adding 6.09%. Table 6.4 Assumptions for calculation of new diesel capacity, Ref /21/ Item Value Comment Capacity 1.0 MW 1.0 MW Capital Cost 0.6 Mill USD 0.6 Mill USD O&M Cost Fixed 0.1 Mill USD 0.1 Mill USD O& M Cost Variable 30 USD/MWh 30 USD/MWh Fuel cost 4450 USc/Gcal 4450 USc/Gcal 146 Baiza/Litre diesel Operating hours 5000 hours 3000 hours Power Production (Useful) 5000 MWh 3000 MWh Efficiency 38% 38% Lifetime 30 years 30 years Discount Factor 7.55% 7.55% Short Run Marginal Cost 130.7 USD/MWh 130.7 USD/MWh Long Run Marginal Cost 160.9 USD MWh 181.1USD MWh Table 6.4 shows the results of this calculation. Long Run Marginal Cost of new diesel capacity is estimated to 160.9 USD/MWh at 5000 operating hours and 181.1 USD/MWh at 3000 operating hours. 6.2 Generation based on renewable energy The production cost of electricity based on the solar and wind energy resources in Oman has been calculated for four specific types of plant: • 20 kW grid connected solar PV plant • 20 MW grid connected solar PV plant, • 20 MW grid connected solar thermal plant • 10kW off grid PV-diesel plant • 20 MW grid connected wind farm 6.2.1 Small grid connected solar PV plant, 20kW Description of the technology and the solar insolation assumptions regarding a small grid connected solar PV is described in Appendix 12. This application is foreseen to be implemented in an urban environment and comprises 200 m 2 conventional panels. It is an end-user application and replace electricity from the grid at the customer level. In terms of comparison of cost it should therefore be compared with the end-user tariff (Permitted Tariff). The result of the cost calculation is shown below in Table 6.5. The costing and optimisation of the application is made in HOMER -Version 2.19 and summarised in Appendix 12. Page 98 of 134 .

This application is in principle identical to the previous, except for the capacity scale. The panels will cover an area of about 200 000 m 2 and be among the largest in world. The application will supply the grid and is the result of the cost calculation is shown below in Table 6.6. The cost calculation is made in HOMERversion 2.19. Table 6.6 Cost data for a new grid connected PV plant - 20 MW Item Capacity Capital Cost O&M Cost Power Production (Useful) Lifetime Value 20 MW 89 Mill USD 0.5 mill USD per year kWh 36 GWh/year 25 years Discount Factor 7.5% Short Run Marginal Cost 0 Long Run Marginal Cost 250 USD/MWh The Long Run Marginal Costs are estimated to 250 USD/MWh for this application.
