ETIP Photovoltaics

LCOE & Competitiveness

ETIP PV LCOE and Competitiveness Working Group (LCOE WG) is responsible for analysing the global market and price development of PV installations, modules and other relevant system components. It publishes an annual factsheet on PV Levelised Cost of Electricity (PV LCOE) including a projection of the cost development up to 2050. The LCOE WG also regularly publishes scientific reports on the competitiveness of PV compared with electricity market and retail prices in various European countries. PV + battery storage is another active topic of the LCOE WG.
