Future renewable energy costs solar photovoltaics

May 1, 2018

KIC InnoEnergy is developing credible future technology cost models for four renewable energy generation technologies using a consistent and robust methodology. The purpose of these cost models is to enable the impact of innovations on the levelised cost of energy (LCOE) to be explored and tracked in a consistent way across the four technologies. While the priority is to help focus on key innovations, credibility comes with a realistic overall LCOE trajectory. This report examines how technology innovation is anticipated to reduce the cost of energy from European photovoltaic installations over the next 15 years.

Renewable Energy Price Risk Management at the Energy Exchange

whitePaper | February 28, 2020

With subsidy schemes being gradually phased out across Europe, renewable energy assets are entering the world of merchant risk management and energy trading. Whilst PPAs are one tool to set a baseline for prices that can be relied upon by developers and banks, there remains a price risk when exposed to wholesale market movements. For several decades, energy trading has primarily been the territory of utilities, trading houses and banks. Now, renewable energy project developers and offtakers exposed to wholesale prices must learn how to employ the financial products available to manage the risk exposure to variable prices.

Facebook's U.S. Renewable Energy Impact Study

whitePaper | June 1, 2021

In 2011, Facebook was one of the first companies to commit to supporting its facilities with 100% renewable energy. Today, the company’s U.S. data center fleet is supported by 100% renewable energy, and Facebook is on track to maintain this commitment for future data center developments and expansions. Facebook’s ability to achieve this commitment is in large part due to its pioneering approach to renewable energy procurement, which to date has resulted in 55 new solar and wind projects adding 5,763 megawatts (MW) of clean electricity to the U.S. grid.
