One of our readers, Kanaga Gnana, recently sent along a November report from the Fraunhofer Institute that has a number of interesting charts in it. I pulled out 6 for sharing here. Have a look.
In this first one, you can see CSP vs PV vs CPV levelized cost of energy (LCOE) estimates for Germany:
In this second one, you can see how those estimates are projected to change over the coming 14 years or so:
Here, you can see LCOE estimates across more energy technologies, renewable energy technologies as well as fossil fuels:
And here are projected LCOE estimates for each of these up to 2030:
In this 5th chart, you can see a 2010 IEA forecast for world solar PV growth, an EPIA (European Photovoltaic Industry Association) forecast for the same, and an average of the two:
In this last one, you can see the wide variation in CPV growth forecasts under an optimistic vs a conservative scenario:
Interesting charts. Bookmark for future referencing. 😉
