Energy Bill — Second Reading (18 Jun 2013)

Viscount Hanworth: ...used that is considerably below both the commercial rate of discount and the 10% that has been used by the Department of Energy and Climate Change in its calculations of the so-called comparative levelised costs of electricity generation. I am an ardent protagonist of nuclear power generation and of the yet to be realised superior nuclear technologies that would be available to us if we...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: New Clause 8 — Power to make capacity market rules (3 Jun 2013)

Caroline Lucas: ...Research and Analysis highlighted that, in many cases, renewables are at cost parity with established forms of electricity generation. Recent analysis by Bloomberg New Energy Finance found that the levelised cost of onshore wind had fallen dramatically in recent years, that the best onshore wind farms in the world currently produce power as economically as coal, gas and nuclear generators,...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Renewable Energy: Scotland (3 Jun 2013)

Michael Fallon: The cost comparisons in the recent report on Scottish Islands Renewables were made on the basis of Levelised Cost of Electricity Generation. These estimates are intended to capture the average costs over the lifetime of the plant per MWh of electricity generated. These include grid connection costs, but do not include balancing costs associated with intermittency.

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Wind Power (15 May 2013)

Michael Fallon: DECC has published levelised costs estimates of various generation technologies including offshore wind on the DECC website for selected years. A summary report of the levelised cost data was published in November 2012 and is available on the DECC website: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachm ent_data/file/65713/6883-electricity-generation-costs.pdf Please note that...

Scottish Parliament: Energy (1 May 2013)

John Swinney: ...has led to renewables capacity more than tripling across Scotland in the decade since its introduction. We reduced onshore wind support by 10 per cent to 0.9 ROCs from April this year, based on levelised cost data and modelling aimed at delivering only the most cost-effective capacity. The Conservative calls that were reiterated this afternoon to halve ROC support for onshore wind are...

Gregory Barker: DECC has published levelised costs(1) estimates of various generation technologies on the DECC website. A summary of the levelised cost data for a large range of generating technologies including renewable technologies was published in November 2012 and is available on the DECC website: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachm...

Backbench Business — New Nuclear Power (7 Feb 2013)

Caroline Flint: ...costs of generation from technology are often uncertain and vary widely. However, according to the most up-to-date research commissioned by the Government, when we take into account the lifetime levelised costs of the various sources of energy and the up-front capital, fuel, maintenance, decommissioning and waste costs, the latest estimate still has nuclear as the cheapest of the various...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 13 - Order for maximum cost and targets (24 Jan 2013)

John Hayes: ...in an unhelpful way, because it could reduce the funding available for elsewhere. While I am sympathetic to the hon. Gentleman’s arguments about the cost of transmission, distorting the levelised cost of generation would be both challenging and probably undesirable. It is important to monitor the situation closely and I, of course, commit to do that. However, I am not sure that the...

Public Bill Committee: Energy Bill: Clause 6 - Direction to offer to contract (22 Jan 2013)

John Hayes: ...questions will be asked about what strike price will emerge for such technologies. The strike price for new technologies will be set in a similar way to the renewables obligation and will consider levelised costs and hurdle rates, where necessary, to bring developments to fruition. Competition is under way on CCS, but for less mature technologies there will be further analysis. Part of the...

Charities Act 2011 (Amendment): Energy Bill (19 Dec 2012)

John Hayes: ...and coal power stations equipped with carbon capture, transport and storage have clear potential to be cost competitive with other forms of low-carbon power generation, delivering electricity at a levelised cost approaching £100/MWh by the early 2020s”. That is not my conclusion, but that of the independent taskforce. By the way, the hon. Member for Wansbeck (Ian Lavery) is right that...

[Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] — Offshore Wind Generation (North Wales) (24 Oct 2012)

Albert Owen: ...the mini-inquiry by the Select Committee on Energy and Climate Change on the economics of wind power, DECC gave some interesting figures. Two large companies undertook research on DECC’s behalf, levelising the cost per megawatt-hour of the different technologies for producing electricity. Nuclear was by far the cheapest, but wind was considerably higher. I have the figures in front of...

Charles Hendry: The Government have commissioned estimates of the overall levelised costs of wind as reported in Arup (2011): http://www.decc.gov.uk/en/content/cms/consultations/cons_ro_ review/cons_ro_review.aspx These are based on assumed average load factors which take into account periods when wind turbines do not generate including due to high winds. Beyond this, the costs of switching off wind turbines...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Energy: Wind and Solar Power (13 Mar 2012)

Lord Marland: ...to note that future solar PV costs are highly uncertain, and DECC is continuously reviewing its estimates in light of the latest evidence. All cost estimates go out to 2030. Table 1 shows £/MWh levelised cost ranges (based on low to high capital costs) for various generation technologies operational in 2020. The ranges do not capture sensitivities around fossil fuel and carbon prices. ...
