Renewable Power Generation Costs in 2014

Renewable Power Generation Costs in 2014 / Michael Taylor, Kathleen Daniel, Andrei Ilas and Eun Young So. Irena, janvier 2015, 164 p.

Presentation (© Irena) :

The competitiveness of renewable power generation technologies continued improving in 2013 and 2014, reaching historic levels. Biomass for power, hydropower, geothermal and onshore wind can all provide electricity competitively against fossil fuel-fired power generation. Solar photovoltaic (PV) power has also become increasingly competitive, with its levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) at utility scale falling by half in four years.

The report aims to reduced uncertainty about the true costs of renewable power generation technologies, so that governments can be more ambitious and efficient in their policy support for renewables. As this comprehensive report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) underlines, perceptions that such technologies are expensive or uncompetitive are outdated, at best.

Le coût des énergies renouvelables en chute libre selon l’IRENA, Enerzine, 20/01/2015 http://www.enerzine.com/14/18052+le-cout-des-energies-renouvelables-en-chute-libre-selon-lirena+.html

« Le coût de production de l’électricité générée à partir de sources d’énergie renouvelables a atteint la parité ou reste situé en dessous du coût des combustibles fossiles pour de nombreuses technologies dans beaucoup de parties du monde« , a affirmé l’Agence internationale de l’énergie renouvelable (IRENA) dans son nouveau rapport publié le 17 janvier…
