As can be seen in the graph above, the majority of broader literature estimates a more measured LCOE decrease — but this could also be seen as underestimating the potential for cost reductions. Whereas the respondents to the elicitation survey are much more bullish about the potential for wind energy cost reductions. This uncertainty is even more prominent reports from the US Government, which are even more likely to present a pessimistic picture of possible wind energy cost reductions. This leads Berkeley Lab to one primary conclusion:
