In a recent UK government auction that handed out power-purchase contracts worth $232 million a year, all of the bids to build offshore wind farms and other renewable technologies were below the $122 per MWh. Auction winners included DONG Energy A/S, with an offer of $76 per MWh for power from its Hornsea 2 offshore wind farm, followed by EDP Renovaveis SA and Engie SA.
The contracts-for-difference auction was for "less-established technologies" such as offshore wind, tidal and anaerobic digestion. The power-purchase agreements are fixed for 15 years.
The offshore wind industry has seen its costs plunge as the capacity of its turbines doubled since 2007. It’s set to double again by 2020, driving down costs further, according to Greenpeace. (Source: Financial Review (Iran), 12 Sept., 2017)
