Written Answers — Trade and Industry: Electricity (13 Nov 2001)

Mr Brian Wilson: The Department has made no recent estimates of the cost of electricity generated by nuclear power. The last study published in 1995 concluded that the levelised costs of nuclear power were around 3.9p/kWh. Studies suggest that capital costs account for about 70 per cent. of total costs, operating and maintenance costs about 20 per cent. and decommissioning and waste costs about 10 per cent....

Figures in the table refer to the percentage shares of levelised costs at 10 per cent. discount rate and are averages of least expensive plant options in each country surveyed.

Written Answers — Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform: Wind Power: Finance (28 Apr 2008)

Malcolm Wicks: holding answer 21 April 2008 The Department does not carry out cost benefit analyses of individual wind farms. The Department has produced estimates of the levelised generation costs for fossil fuels (coal and gas) and low carbon technologies. Estimates for onshore and offshore wind use a pre-tax commercial discount rate of between 10 and 12 per cent. The Department uses the Treasury Green...

Lord Jones of Birmingham: ...UK's energy in 2020 using these different technologies is given in the table below. Costs are resource costs, estimated on the basis of 1740TWh final energy demand in 2020. Resource costs are the levelised costs of individual technologies, net of the cost of a counterfactual technology. Costs do not include costs of additional network investment, or other hidden costs (eg transaction...
