Wind Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) at All-Time Low: Filed under: Energy News

Wind Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) at All-Time Low: Filed under: Energy News

It’s been awhile since I read and wrote about so many huge clean energy stories in one day, or in one week. From clean, renewable energy providing Europe with 70% of its new power in 2011 , to solar PV bringing down the cost of electricity in Germany , to the largest offshore wind farm in the world opening in the UK today, and even more big stories in between, this is a time to remember. Another big story, reported by Greentech Media and discovered by researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), is that the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) from wind power has reached an all-time low. Wind power levelized cost of electricity at all-time low. Its LCOE is now between $33 and $65 per MWh and clearly beats that of fossil fuels. This is actually not brand new news, as it was previously reported at the end of December, but I’m sure not many eyes have run a...
