S Tegen, M Hand, B Maples, E Lantz, P Schwabe, A Smith – NREL, April 2012

Summary
This report presents the best available information on the cost of wind energy in 2010, along with a summary of historical trends and future projections. One way to express the cost of wind energy is to calculate the levelized cost of energy (LCOE). The LCOE is a metric that has been used by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for many years to evaluate the life-cycle costs of generation for energy projects and the total system impact of technology design changes.
