CAPEX is the overnight cost of building a power plant per KW (Gross, i.e. before parasitic load and load factor)

What should be included in this category?

  • This should include the cost of new gas CCS generation plants. No distinction is made between retro fit and new build.

What should be excluded from this category?

  • CO2 transportation and storage costs should not be included here, but instead included in the Summary of CO2 transportation cost data points.

How are these costs used in the 2050 Pathways model?
