Levelized Cost of Electricity- Renewable Energy Technologies

Fraunhofer-Institut für Solare Energiesysteme ISE

Dipl. Wi.-Ing. Christoph Kost, Fraunhofer ISE 13. November 2013

The study compares the present costs for conversion of different energy forms into electricity and gives a prognosis for the further cost development up to 2030. The scientists in Freiburg analyze both the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) from renewables as well as from conventional energy technologies. They present comparative figures for new power plants constructed in Germany, which are based on solar, wind energy and biogas as well as brown coal, hard coal and gas.

The study was carried out in the business area Energy System Analysis and is also available in german language.
