CARBON MARKET (Europe)
One ton of CO2 is being currently traded at about 25 EUROs and the penalty is at about 40 EUROs . It takes approximatively 2 MWh for a power plant to generate 1 ton of CO2 . For a MOTORWAVE of 1 MW capacity that cost 100 000 EUROs ,it will take approx 8760 hours Of production to cover the initial capital investment . There is 8760 hours in one year . In one years a MOTORWAVE can be fully financed just by the carbon market . By selling a electricity production of 1700 MWh (approx 70 days of production) at 0.05 euros /KWh We collect : 85 000 EUROs By selling the equivalent in CO2 to the carbon market (750 tons ) we collect : 21 250 EUROs Total = 106 000 EUROs . By selling the electricity production and selling the equivalent CO2 we break even in 70 days . One MOTORWAVE will generate in 10 years approx 43 800 tons equivalent CO2 : 1.09 million EUROs and approx 4.4 million EUROs in electricity revenues .
