About
Heat efficiency for cost allocation.

Heat sales

Heat sales based on assumed share of variable costs included in heat price.

Fuel

Cost of fuel used based on efficiency and heat fuel prices.

Variable operation and management

Cost of activities and consumables other than fuel, related to the variable operation and maintenance of the generation unit.

Fixed operation and management

Fixed operation and management costs do not vary significantly with a plant’s electricity generation. The full annual costs are levelized over the plants annual full load hours.

Investment

Levelized investment costs are calculated from: 1. Overnight investment costs of the unit, 2. Required rate of return, 3. Assumed economic lifetime, 4. Annual full load hours of generation.

Total

The total cost of producing electricity per technology given in cost / kWh. 'Heat sales' are deducted from the total cost since this is an income for the unit.

The required rate of return can be changed from 0% to 10%.

Change number of full-load hours for land-based windmills from 600 to 6000.

About fuel prices

Cost of the fuel inputs based on the assumptions in the selected fuel price scenarios.

About CO2 prices

Cost of CO2 emissions based on the assumptions in the slected CO2 scenario.
