h2 Current Calculator assumptions

* Lifetime =  25yrs [MARKAL]
* Efficiency =  Capacity factor = 24% 
* Input Fuel = Wind

h2 Cost sources assumptions

* MARKAL: 10-20% availability factor, 25 year lifetime
* EMSE: Pole mounted, 2% availability factor, 20 years economic life

h1 Issues, concerns and questions

* The capacity factor appears quite ambitious in comparison to other models
