Title: 2050 Costs: Technical Manual

Content: Welcome to the 2050 Pathways Wiki. This resource will allow you to submit comments, evidence and data to help build our understanding of the costs involved in meeting the UK's 2050 emissions reduction targets. 

| *Sector Costs*                                                             | *Costs Methodology*                                                               | *Web Interface*                 |

h1 What are we looking for?

As part of a wider analysis on the transition to a low carbon UK, the Department of Energy and Climate Change is exploring technology costs across the energy system and how these may develop from now until 2050. 

h2 Technology Costs

We are asking for expert input to establish cost ranges for some of the key technologies that may play a role in a low-carbon UK. We are not looking for commercially sensitive data, but do aim to compile a range of evidence from within industry and academia. If you have sectoral expertise and can provide evidence on the costs of a technology you can add this to the relevant sector costs page. 

h2 Method and Presentation

Feedback is also sought on calculating, projecting and presenting  costs from now until 2050. You can find out more about this by clicking the links above. 

h2 General comments

If you have comments of a general nature you will find space at the end of each wiki page where these can be added.

h1 How to add Cost Data

To quickly add a sector cost click 'add a cost' on the top right of the screen. Please fill in as much of the submission form as possible as this will help us allocate your costs appropriately. 

h1 Help & FAQ

Please see FAQs to view frequently asked questions on the 2050 Costs work and add any questions you may have. We will try to respond to these as quickly as possible.

Title: 2050 Costs: Technical Manual

Content: 2050 Costs Calculator wiki

The Department for Energy and Climate Change re-launched the 2050 Calculator on the 1st December 2011 to include new information on costs and air quality.  The Government is seeking help to improve this costs and air quality analysis through a Call for Evidence with a deadline of 8th March 2012.  This web site is a wiki for users to feedback their comments.

Background

The 2050 Calculator allows the user to experiment with many  different ways of meeting the UK’s target to reduce emissions 80% by 2050.  For example, users can boost energy supply by building more nuclear and wind turbines, or they can reduce energy demand by insulating people’s homes and changing travel behaviour.

Now, in addition to seeing the energy security and landscape impacts of their chosen pathway, users will also be able to see how much it will cost and implications for air quality.   The Government is seeking help to improve this analysis through a Call for Evidence, with a deadline of 8th March 2012.

The 2050 Costs Calculator includes capital, operating costs and fuel costs for all of the c. 130 technologies and fuels in the Calculator out to 2050.  The cost estimates are from a wide range of credible, published sources; there are no “new” cost estimates included in this tool.  Costs are borne by the UK economy; they are not bill impacts for consumers.
