Thanks for your feedback. I didn’t find Bhamre’s LCOE figures too high. As far as my figures go, I get similar values to his, but a comparison is most welcome! I just wrote to you via email.

Cheers

I’ve made contact with Mr. Bhamre regarding the assumptions he used to calculate LCOEs for Germany. I found his calculations rather high and shared with him the assumptions I generally use to model Germany. I’m interested in finding out what sort of assumptions I can use for calculating LCOEs in Italy. If you can send me an email at bingbangvroom-at-yahoo.com I’ll forward the model I use to calculate LCOEs. This model includes generic assumptions for Germany.

Also… You questioned Bhamre’s German retail electricity price numbers. Here’s a site that lists these numbers. They are indeed as high as Bhamre indicated.
