The report, written by Frontier Economics, was originally commissioned by former energy secretary Ed Davey. Its aim was to develop a theoretical framework of how to think about the whole power system impacts of electricity generation technologies, including renewable energy technologies. The report investigates the added costs and factors involved in the integration of renewable energy technologies into the national grid, alongside existing conventional power stations. It states that Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCOE) calculations are not the best method of comparing technologies, due to how they disregard other costs associated with the electricity system, hence the need to identify whole system impacts in order to understand them more clearly. Whole power system impacts and their drivers with impacts broken down into technology costs and wider power system impacts with...
