DALLAS, June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ —
ReportsnReports.com adds following new market research reports on Power Generation Costs as well as Grid Parity for Wind and Solar Power with a Future Outlook and Impact Analysis:
Features and benefits
- Realize up-to-date competitive intelligence through comprehensive power cost analysis in electricity power generation markets.
- Assess power generation costs and analysis, including capital costs, overnight costs, levelized costs, and risk analysis.
- Identify the key trends that will offer the greatest growth potential and learn which technology trends are likely to have the most market impact.
- Discover how carbon costs will affect the industry, comparing renewable and conventional technologies using financial and lifecycle analysis.
- Quantify structural costs of grid extension, the effect of drivers, legislation, and tariffs, installation costs, and the cost of electricity.
Combined cycle gas turbine plants with carbon capture and storage (CCS) are the cheapest of the conventional base-load technologies, with an estimated cost of £900-1,000/kW.
Geothermal power in the UK is relatively expensive at £4,700/kW, whch is partly a reflection of the fact that deep drilling and rock fracturing are required to exploit the resource.
Offshore wind has an estimated levelized cost of $167/MWh. Solar pV costs fell from $5,879/kW in 2010 to $4,474/kW in 2011.
