Australian energy technology assessments
About this publication
The Australian Energy Technology Assessment (AETA) 2012 provides the best available and most up-to-date cost estimates for 40 electricity generation technologies under Australian conditions. These costs, detailed in this report and in an accompanying model, are provided by key cost component and include a levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) that allows for cross-technology and over time comparisons.
The AETA has been developed in close consultation with a project steering committee whose members were selected on the basis of their high-level of technical expertise and also a stakeholder reference group drawn from industry and research/academic organisations with interests and knowledge in a diverse range of electricity generation technologies.
