Electricity: Cost-competitiveness - Question (16 May 2024)

Lord Callanan: .... However, I will give the noble Lord the costs in the latest published analysis, which show that electricity from offshore wind is 60% cheaper to build and operate than gas-fired power. The levelised costs are £44 per megawatt hour for offshore wind, versus £114 per megawatt hour for closed-cycle gas turbines. The other key point is energy security. As the noble Lord is well aware, the...

Written Answers — Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Tidal Power: Cost Effectiveness (22 Mar 2024)

Lord Callanan: Tidal stream is a novel technology and so initial costs are high. Cost reductions are required to deliver the potential benefits cost-effectively. In 2023 DESNZ published research on ‘Levelised Costs of Electricity from Tidal Stream Energy’. It suggested there is potential for significant cost reductions, subject to deployment. 94MW of new tidal stream power was procured in Contracts for...

Lord Callanan: The Government regularly publishes its view of the levelised cost of generating a unit of electricity from various technologies, including renewables and gas-fired power generation with CCUS, in the Electricity generation costs report which was updated in 2023.

Nuclear Energy - Motion to Take Note ( 7 Sep 2023)

Lord Ravensdale: ...in constructing such a system, using technology that has not yet been demonstrated at scale, would be extremely challenging. The cost per megawatt hour of that system would be far more than the levelised cost of electricity figures we routinely see quoted for renewable electricity. So the picture is much more complex than simply comparing costs at the generator. We live in a radically...
