Title: 2050 working assumption cost source

Content: These are the 2050 working assumptions. They should always be ranges and always encompass the range of costs put forward by credible experts.

As a default, the top end of the range is the cost we know we can deliver, today. Therefore it assumes that any cost reduction in the future is 'used up' in increasing technical performance. The bottom end of the range is the most optimistic view, allowing for both innovative breakthroughs and learning by actually deploying the system. It would only be reasonably expected if other parts of the world also invested heavily in this particular technology.

We expect to update these assumptions over the call for evidence period and over time, as more evidence becomes available.
