Challenges: to design a tool for a quick calculation of returns of renewable type projects

Description: The client needed a simple but very flexible tool to simulate different scenarios of solar PV utility-scale projects in which the expected return varies according to a series of input parameters such as

– Equivalent hours

– Capex

– Opex

– Years of life

An Excel simulation tool was designed with a sensitivity analysis module based on the WBT tool itself to build different scenarios by modifying the input variables. In order to set the central scenarios, the typical values in Spain of the different input variables were defined along with ranges of probable variation in the next few years. The final deliverable was a report with the most probable scenario together with different scenarios depending on the variation of the input parameters.
