the article in the Telegraph today reveals the need for a new energy business model that changes the energy supply chain paradigmThe current energy crisis and
In the article, a family with an annual electricity bill of £1,500 desired to reduce their bill and installed a 9.5Kwp solar system and battery. They sell “excess” power back to grid and this has “reduced” their annual electricity bill to £50. The solar system and battery cost £21,000.
Peak system performance is likely only in the first 10 years and only if the panels are cleaned properly and regularly. Their annual total cost of electricity will definitely increase from £50 when maintenance costs and battery degradation effects are included.
Assuming zero cost of capital it would take 14.5 years to recoup the capital cost and achieve accounting (not economic) breakeven. This system would likely never achieve economic breakeven in reality.
Sadly this investment likely had negative NPV (net present value) at the time it was made and not many families can afford an upfront cost of £21,000 to go “somewhat” carbon neutral. Also this type of investment / setup would not make the consumer immune from rising costs of energy or gas price spikes like those currently being experienced.
Considering that on average 75% of our personal carbon emissions and energy costs are due to heating our homes and transportation then not much carbon or economic savings have actually been achieved for the £21,000 investment.
It has been estimated that over £75,000 would be required to go “green” by acquiring and installing individual solar panels, batteries, heat pumps and electric vehicles.
A-DEUS’ game changing Energy Plan and Mortgage model delivers price stability and efficiencies which are impossible under today’s models. Under our integrated value chain structure there is no such thing as supply shortages or price hikes as members effectively co-own the very fuel source (e.g gas field) and hardware (e.g fuel cell) required for their energy needs.
No other solutions but the A-DEUS energy plan and mortgage model backed by integrated ownership of assets from fuel source through to generation hardware would have been able to deliver guaranteed price stability and energy security for consumers.
