Generation Capacity generation capacity installed should meet the expected 7% increase in peak demand and a reserve margin. Generation capacity (GW)
POWER SECTOR CHALLENGES High annual growth in demand ( will continue 6-7%). Extremely sharp daily and yearly load curve (air- conditioning). Replacement of inefficient old generating units. High capital investment for expansion. The need for private sector investment.
HOW TO MEET THE CHALLENGES ? More investment in power generation,T&D. Encourage the developers for more IPP. Introduce the smart grid transmission system. Promote energy conservation and load management. Invest in renewable energy.
IPP PROGRAM IN SEC SEC will Continue to encourage private investors to invest in Future Generation projects. 30 – 40 % of Future generation will be IPP(BOO). SEC partnership will be 10%-50% in the equity. Long term power purchase agreements (20years) With reasonable return on investment.
WHY IPP? Providing Financial Option for Highly Capital Intensive Generation Projects. Helping To Re-Direct Available Funds To T&D (Monopoly Activities) Reallocation Expenditure From CAPEX To OPEX. Avoiding Mismatch Between Medium Term Financing and Long Life PP Projects.
SUCCESSFUL IPP ROJECTS Two IPP Projects in process: 1. Rabigh Power Plant (closed financialyJuly last yea) 1200 MW / HFO IPCOD APRIL 2012 Investment US$ 2.4 billions 2. Riyadh Power Plant 11 (financial close next month) 1800 MW / GAS IPCOD APRIL 2013 INVESTMENT US 1.5 billions.
