A relatively low LCOE means that electricity is being produced at a low cost. The LCOE of pre-combustion technology is the highest amongand respectively.

According to Figure 1. There is a gap between the LCOE and the financial costs in real electricity market due to some specific uncertainties such as fuel and carbon price.

The LCOE equation is an evaluation of the life-cycle energy cost and life-cycle energy production [11]. In general, every reasonable ccgg has been made to maximise use of the waste heat which is generated by the process and to thereby optimise the net efficiency of the overall plant. LCOE of Wind and solar PV technologies is decreasing due to the reduction of construction cost and increment of average load factor.

The total electricity produced in is TWh, and the shares of electricity generation based on primary fuel source are This steam export has resulted in a larger STG and condenser than would otherwise be required. To achieve the greenhouse gases reduction target, CCS technology will play as an important role to a low-carbon future, which allows continued use of fossil fuels whilst limiting global temperature rises. It denotes the level of risk to invest a project, riskier cctt generally have higher hurdle rate [13].


Moreover, oxyfuel combustion technology has the trend to be the cheapest CCS technology.

The LCOE calculation begins with Equation 1expressing the equality between the present value of the sum of revenues on the left-hand side and the present value of the sum of costs on the right-hand side. But, the CCS technology has much potential to reduce its LCOE, such as investing in large CO cccs storage clusters with shared pipelines to decrease the cc cost; re-use of existing oil and gas infrastructure to reduce the construction cost; developing a subsidiary supply business to increase the revenue of power plant.

The LCOE of project starting from to To account for the time-value of money, the whole costs and benefits are adjusted for inflation and discounted rate.

To evaluate the total cost of electricity, the streams of costs are converted to a net present value using the time value of money by discounted cash flow model. Arup and Leigh [Fisher [16] [17] provide cost and technical assumptions for the renewable technologies and non-renewable technologies individually; NERA Economic Consulting [18] provide a report on hurdle rates for projects starting development from And the rest of greenhouse gases need to be paid the carbon cost, so the increasing carbon price leads to the increase of LCOE.

This limitation of renewable could be solved by coal and gas-fired power station fitted with carbon capture storage CCS technology. CCS will play a vital role in efforts to limit the global warming.

Discounted rate, also known as the hurdle rate, is the minimum Internal Rate of Return IRR that a company expects to earn when investing in a project. Typically when firing hydrogen in a gas turbine, the turbine ccgy area must be increased from that of the reference plant, to accommodate the increased volumetric flowrate of fuel which is required due to the lower heat content relative to natural gas and to maintain the design pressure ratios of the machine.


The boiler feed water supplied to the heat recovery system is obtained from the CCGT a larger boiler feed water system has been allowed for. Although wind and solar PV technology are become more and more mature and cheaper, CCS as a developing technology has the potential to be one of the most cost-ef- fective technologies [8].

In the UK electricity system, gas and coal- fired power station with CCS is an unavoidable option in order to meet the increasing energy demand and keep lights on whilst minimizing the environmental damage [7].

And renewable energy would make a huge contribution to the low-carbon economy. If the LCOE of CCGT with CCS could be reduced to an appropriate price level, the UK government could use CCS technology to maintain secure and low carbon electricity as more intermittent renewables and inflexible nuclear come onto the grid, and does not worry about the suddenly increased household electricity bills.

Currently, there are 8 operational commercial-scale CCS plants in U. Energy and Power Engineering9 The hydrogen fuel gas for the gas turbine is supplied at a molar ratio of about Process air for the reforming process is extracted from the gas turbine compressor. Principle The LCOE is an important measurement for comparing the unit costs of different electricity technologies to guide discussion and decision-making [10].
