The UK "carbon price floor" is likely to be significantly higher than the European carbon price and so has not been included. The differing estimates may not be exactly comparable, due to differences in the assumptions about productivity, discount rates and depreciation periods. Although generation costs for UK onshore and offshore wind appeared to be significantly higher than elsewhere, this is largely due to the assumption of a 10% discount rate that is built into estimates by the UK government's Department of Energy and Climate Change (Decc).
