Grenada Alternatively Energised - Renewable Energy Options in the Caribbean
by James Post James Post
27 March 2007

The world is substantially increasing alternative energy sources which contribute less to global warming than fossil fuels.

Global warming is now recognized as a serious threat to the health of the planet.

Earlier programs that aimed at “green” energy contributions of 10-20% are currently being studied for revision. As good as they are intended; they only offset the growth in carbon dioxide emission, which causes global warming.

If there is one place in this world where alternative energy should be a priority, it definitely is the Caribbean.

Energy typically costs between US$ 0.25 and US$ 0.38 per kWh (kiloWatt hour or “unit”), among the highest in the world. In the Caribbean, the trade winds and abundant sunshine provide ideal conditions for green energy. While in many countries alternative energy needs subsidizing to be economically feasible, in the Caribbean it is already cheaper than burning diesel. Nevertheless, the use of green energy is far behind because of insufficient knowledge and lack of local financing.

In this article, the main sources of alternative energy are discussed in general, followed by specific options for the Caribbean.

WIND ENERGY
Bigger windmills mean lower cost per kWh. Therefore the mainstream of the market is 2-3 MW (Mega Watt = 2000-3000 kW peak capacity) windmills. Their average yield is up to 1 MW, depending on wind conditions.

However, big systems also bring big problems with them: complexity of installation, accessibility, maintenance.

Moreover, they require a very "strong" net (mains). Currently, even strong nets can not handle more than 25-30 % participation of the big systems. The worst case scenario must be considered: maximum wind output at lowest power requirement at any time.

In the western world, due to industrialization, the difference between minimum use and average use is not that big, but it reduces the wind penetration anyway. As the average and maximum yield differ substantially, this further reduces the wind penetration. Wind penetration is the percentage of energy to the total, that is supplied by wind.

The big systems have (costly) options to waste energy into dummy loads in extreme cases, but practically, the maximum wind penetration is around 10% of the average power use.

 

Grenada Windmill

In Western hemispheres this is currently also seen as a practical limit because of the limitations to place wind mills on land (people do not like the view). Ten percent, as useful as it is, is not even covering the growth of energy use.

For the big windmills the best option to expand is offshore wind parks.

Advanced control systems will need to intelligently switch towers on and off or better: use storage for the excess energy. When this is perfectly implemented, 25-30% of the average use can be wind energy.

The Netherlands is one of the countries focusing on offshore wind parks. Recently the world's second largest offshore wind park was commissioned. See the movie here.

More information can be found here.

In smaller markets -such as the Caribbean- big is not as beautiful as in the West, as the nets are relatively small and the infrastructure to install and maintain the big systems is limited. A company from the Netherlands: (www.windenergysolutions.nl) recognized this gap and delivers solutions in the form of mid-range windmills (80-250 kW) and developed intelligent control systems that dynamically balance energy output and requirement. This can significantly increase the wind penetration to 60% or more. While the pure cost per kWh of the wind energy is lower than the big systems, the average cost of wind and diesel is better.

Grenada Windmill

The smaller systems are easy to install and maintain. For the Caribbean -and similar markets- this is clearly the way to go.

In March 2007, the first windmill in the Eastern Caribbean was installed successfully at Paradise Bay, a hotel and resort community in Grenada.

James Post, owner and former hi-tech electronics executive designed an intelligent control system that further increases the wind penetration by switching non-critical loads (such as water heaters) in function of the available wind. This can bring the wind penetration to an astonishing 90%.

This advanced windmill system currently runs independently in combination with a standard diesel generator but can be connected to the mains. Once this is realized, the owners of the villas and the resort enjoy savings of 20%, while the electricity company also saves on energy cost. This is a clear case that serving the environment can also be profitable.

The media attention for this first installation was tremendous. The press conference attracted high profile VIP’s, specialists, local and regional television and newspapers. It was promising to see that many individuals and companies in the Caribbean are seriously considering following the example.

Having the background to follow this up, James Post decided to pick up the challenge and offers to provide expertise and support to parties interested in installing their own windmills in the Caribbean.

SOLAR
Photovoltaic systems used to be only suitable for small-scale energy requirements. This is changing thanks to increasing production and subsidized use by western governments, Currently PV solar can not compete with wind energy, but on the long term drastic improvements are to be expected. A long term vision that new houses are covered wit solar roofs is getting within sight.

Solar systems have the advantage of low maintenance (only cleaning) and can also save some cost by replacing traditional roofing systems.

In the Caribbean, PV solar systems are already getting close to the cost of generating electricity from fossil sources because of the intense sunshine and the high cost of diesel. Once the production cost of PV solar systems further decreases, they will create savings for their owners. This will likely induce a massive breakthrough.

An even more rewarding source of solar energy in the Caribbean is the solar water heater. It produces abundant hot water and the installed cost can be as low as 800 US$ for a 50 gallon system. In many cases they pay for themselves in 2-3 years. Yet, they are far from popular. Awareness is the issue again.

An aspect specific to solar systems in the Caribbean is protection against hurricanes. In affected areas, proper measures need to be taken. PV systems should best be covered with plywood panels, ready to fit. Solar water heaters should either be covered or taken out in case of a hurricane.

While all this requires attention in designing the setup, the good news is that the related cost is not significant.

HYDRO
Using water force as an energy source is not new.

Some countries, such as Canada, rely heavily on hydro power. Clearly, the availability is limited to specific areas. And to make efficient use of hydro power, the scale must be sufficient. While the contribution of hydro is important, it is not expected to belong to the main stream in terms of aggressive growth of green energy on a global basis.

Dominica leads the way in the Eastern Caribbean, it has a 5MW hydro plant run by DOMLEC and which supplies 40% of the electricity in Dominica.

There are options for the other islands but cost may be a prohibitive factor.

GEOTHERMAL
Earth core temperature is approximately 9000° F and gradually reduces in temperature closer to the surfaces, but the temperature close to the surface varies greatly.

Rainwater that seeps in deeper parts of the earth gets hot and is called a geothermal source. In some parts of the world this water finds its way back to the surface via cracks and faults, such as geysers (i.e. in Iceland) and hot springs.

As with solar energy, the issue is how to tap that virtually unlimited source of green energy. In most cases the trick is to drill to find and get access to the geothermal source. The hot water can then be used both directly and in geothermal power plants, which consists of 3 varieties. Steam can directly be used to generate electricity with a dry steam generator.

Water between 300-700°F can be used in a Flash Power Plant, where hot water is flashed into steam. Water with a temperature as low as 220°F can be used in a Binary Power Plant, where the hot water indirectly produces steam from a fluid with a lower boiling point using heat exchangers.

The used water is fed back into the source for reheating. It is renewable in a sense, as the available heat capacity has its limits.

Currently, the worldwide capacity of geothermal power plants is over 9,000 MW. The energy cost of “easy access” geothermal energy power plants is comparable to wind energy. An MIT study showed that it is feasible to increase the capacity in the US alone to at least 100,000 MW, requiring an investment of up to 1 Billion US$.

It is comparable to drilling for oil; the more you want, the more difficult (expensive) it is to find the sources. Clearly, geothermal energy can become a major contributor to the world’s energy needs in the long term.

Geothermal power plants can adjust output to required needs, which is a significant advantage and makes them very suitable for “base load power” (the amount of energy that is “always” needed).

In the Caribbean the Lesser Eastern Antilles are known to have potential for geothermal energy. Guadeloupe has had a 4 MW plant from shallow high temperature wells since 1984. Explorations have shown encouraging results in Dominica, Montserrat and St. Lucia, but no further initiatives have been taken yet.

TIDAL ENERGY
If there is one thing we can safely predict and be sure of on this planet, it is the coming and going of the tide.

While the energy capacity is reliable, converting it into electrical power is not easy. One option is to build a “tidal barrage” (compare to hydro lakes) which are not only complicated but also cause drastic changes to the currents in the estuary that could have huge effects on the ecosystem. Nevertheless, tidal barrages have a huge potential, worth while further exploration.

Another option is to use offshore turbines that work comparable to wind parks, but underwater and using the tides as a source.

This technology brings no ecological issues, but as it is in a early stage of development, the cost is not yet competitive (like wind energy in the early days).

Once cost gets competitive it offers a huge potential and can be applied anywhere where the tides are suitable, which includes the Caribbean.


BIO-MASS ENERGY
Wood used to be our main fuel, utilized to heat and cook. Wood still provides some of the energy we use, but its importance as an energy source is dwindling. Sugar cane can be fermented to make alcohol, which can be burned to generate power. Alternatively, the cane can be crushed and the pulp (bagass) can be burned, to make steam to drive turbines.

Other solid waste products can be converted into steam for a power plant as well.

The bioconversion process uses plant and animal wastes to produce fuels such as methanol, natural gas, and oil.

Manure, corn stalks, wood chips, seaweed, and other waste products can be used.

A disadvantage is that burning causes greenhouse gases, known to cause global warming.

CONCLUSIONS
On a worldwide basis, green energy is a viable option, both on the short and long term, but requiring investments to achieve a substantial contribution.

In the Caribbean, the options are essentially the same, but practically wind and solar energy are the most promising short term solutions.

Economically, wind energy has the best options at this time, with solar as the runner-up.

A proven and widely spread economical model is where owners of windmills sell the excess energy to the electricity company at a price below their fuel cost. Once electricity companies in the Caribbean pick up this concept, major savings for both them and the owners of the windmills will apply.

"How To Buy Costa Rica Real Estate Without Losing Your Camisa" was written by Scott Oliver with the help of dozens of Costa Rica real estate experts and attorneys.

 How to Buy Real Estate in Costa Rica Without Losing Your Shirt - Ebook

This is not a book about living in Costa Rica; it is a 140 page comprehensive English-language guide to buying Costa Rica real estate.

Contrary to what some people may have told you, there is no Multiple Listing Service! Trying to establish the 'value' of real estate is difficult.

Half the population of Costa Rica call themselves 'brokers' because anybody can freely call themselves a real estate 'broker'. They do not need any qualifications, training or experience to try and sell you real estate.

What this means is that when you search for Costa Rica real estate, which may be one of the biggest investments of your life, more than likely, you will listen to expert advice coming from someone with zero qualifications or training in real estate, who is trying very hard to earn a sales commission selling you a property that could be overpriced.

If this sounds like a recipe for disaster to you, it can be!

The Golden Door to Retirement in Costa Rica

Retire to Mexico

Have you ever thought about retiring in Mexico? How about retiring in one of its many lovely retirement havens?

Dru Pearson, the author of this report, tells us that there are five major areas where American and Canadian retirees tend to congregate. While there may be a few expatriates scattered in a dozen villages throughout Mexico, most Americans and Canadians settle in one of five locations: San Miguel de Allende, Mazatlan, Oaxaca, Guadalajara, or Lake Chapala. Dru Pearson visited all these areas before settling in Lake Chapala. Dru gives sound and thoughtful advice on retirement in Mexico. Everything from how to pick your location to Mexican paperwork is covered. If you've ever considered retirement in Mexico please read this report first. It has the information that would otherwise take you months of frustration to acquire.

But why Mexico, you might ask? The reason so many Americans and Canadians choose Mexico is because they can drive to Mexico in a car. A bigger reason is that Mexico is a bargain compared to the USA and Canada. But there are also a large number of Europeans in Mexico. Mexico is rich with history, steeped in culture, having perhaps a more pronounced culture than any other nation in latin America with the exception of Brazil and Argentina. Mexico has great food, great architecture and many areas with an excellent climate. Mexico is also modern, with better highways than many parts of latin America and an infrastructure that allows foreigners to connect via telephone and internet to the rest of the world. This level of infrastructure isn't available in Nicaragua, nor in Guatemala, and this is a very important determining factor for the retiree who doesn't want to be inconvenienced by inconveniences.
