December 2016: BEIS report on Energy Generation Costs

Professor Ania Zalewska has produced a report for the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). This will help them estimate their renewable energy generation costs for the next 15 years.

The report, Electricity Generation Costs, highlights significant falls in estimates of future costs. Renewables now constitute almost a quarter of the UK electricity generation. Their use is expected to grow significantly in the future.

BEIS estimates of renewable energy generation costs are a fundamental part of their energy market analysis. They use these estimates to design UK government policy. For example, they are used to determine which renewable technologies are able to bid for support in government auctions and determine the maximum amount the government will pay for each technology.

The government contracts in these auctions alone will amount to three quarters of a billion pounds in the next three years.
