CAPEX and LCOE is the new module of Enerdata’s Power Plant Tracker database. It is the most insightful tool to make informed decisions about which technologies to invest in and where.
In just a few clicks, access unique, premium data on both thermal and renewable power generation costs. Put our detailed, reliable information to use and benchmark your project.
Power Plant Tracker’s new module provides exclusive insights on both Capital Expenditure and Levelised Cost of Electricity:
LCOE – Analyse the evolution of Levelised Cost of Electricity by technology, and by country or region
The LCOE is a calculation used to compare the cost of electricity production among different technologies.
LCOE represents the aggregate of a power generation asset’s costs during its lifetime.
The cost is assumed to be constant throughout the years and is expressed in USD/MWh or EUR/MWh.

CAPEX – Analyse the evolution of overnight Capital Expenditure costs by technology and by country or region. Benchmark with your own projects’ costs.
Capital Expenditures, also called overnight costs, are the initial investment required to build a generating asset, i.e. the cost of investing in a power plant without taking into account the financial costs (interest rates) or the structure of financing (equity (WACC) vs. debt). The concept of overnight costs is common in energy economics.
