A Greenpeace report commissioned from 100%RE academics from Lappeenranta University of Technology (of course) on electricity generation costs was recently published in Journal of Cleaner Production. Details of the computations were kindly made available as a supplementary spreadsheet. The results left something to be desired. I wrote a response which has now been published. “Response to ‘A comparative analysis of electricity generation costs from renewable, fossil fuel and nuclear sources in G20 countries for the period 2015–2030’” (doi:10.1016/j.jclepro.2018.07.159). Link should work for few months after which you either need access to the journal or download it from here. Take away lesson as usual: Be critical and do not automatically trust the results or conclusions.

Added 18.10.2018: The free share link does not seem to work from WordPress so if you don’t have access otherwise you can download it from here.
