The central findings of our LCOE analysis include: 1) certain Alternative Energy technologies (e.g.,
wind and utility-scale solar), which became cost-competitive with conventional generation several
years ago, are, in some scenarios, approaching a LCOE that is at or below the marginal cost of
certain conventional generation technologies; 2) despite the sustained and growing costcompetitiveness
of certain Alternative Energy technologies, advanced economies will require diverse
generation fleets to meet baseload generation needs for the foreseeable future; and 3) a rational and
cost-based analysis is necessary to enable a modern grid, cost-effective energy development and an
increasingly clean energy economy.
