PPT costs logoLCOE and CAPEX is the new optional module of Enerdata’s Power Plant Tracker database. It is the most insighful tool to make informed decisions as to which technologies to invest in and where. In just a few clicks, access unique data on both thermal and renewable power generation costs. Benefit from detailed and reliable information and benchmark your project.

The LCOE & CAPEX Module is the new Power Plant Tracker optional module.


Power Plant Tracker’s new cost module provides exclusive insight on both levelized costs of electricity and capital expenditure.

LCOEs – Analyze the evolution of Levelized Costs of Electricity by technology by country/region

  • Glossary:
    LCOE represents the remuneration to the electricity supplier throughout the generating asset lifetime. The remuneration is assumed to be constant throughout the years. It is expressed in USD/MWh or EUR/MWh.
    The LCOE calculation is used to compared the cost of electricity production between different technologies.

CAPEX - Analyze the evolution of overnight costs by technology by country/region. Benchmark with your own projects’ costs.

  • Glossary:
    Overnight costs represent the initial investment of a generating asset, i.e. the cost of investment in a power plant without taking into account the financial costs (interests rates) and the structure of financing (equity (WACC) vs loan). The overnight costs is a common concept in energy economy.
