Abstract Significant investment in new electricity capacity is required over the next decades to meet carbon budgets while maintaining security of supply. Much of this investment could be driven by policy decisions, for example around the allocation of Contracts for Difference (CfDs) to alternative types of low carbon generation. Value for money is a key consideration in these policy decisions. However, there is little consensus around which technologies might provide the best value for money, once their full impacts are taken into account. Assessing value for money is a complex and difficult task, and many different approaches and assumptions can be used, ranging from simplified metrics (e.g. levelized costs) to complex ‘blackbox’ modelling.
