While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    DENMARK OCEAN WIND PRICE BEATS NUKES, NAT GAS

    The myth of expensive offshore wind: it’s already cheaper than gas-fired and nuclear

    Mike Parr, March 31, 2015 (Energy Post)

    “Offshore wind is routinely criticized for being too expensive…The Danish offshore wind target is 1350MW by 2020…[Denmark publishes data on] every single wind turbine onshore and offshore in the country…This data facilitates a financial analysis…Anholt has been built, Horns Rev 2 is in planning and Saeby will soon be out for tender. The estimate for the capacity factor (CF) for Anholt in a normal year is around 77%...but to be conservative I have assumed a CF of 65%. Horns Rev 3 will be built near Horns Rev 2 which has a known CF of 50%...I have assumed a wholesale price of €25/MWh for a period of 15 years after the 10-year [subsideized] period is over…I have also assumed a discount rate of 5% (cost of capital/debt)…Based on the Prognos report for the Bavarian government (published in November 2014) [the price of natural gas from CCGTs is around €90/MWh]…Anholt turns out to be 14% cheaper and Horns Rev3 around 37% cheaper…If we compare the offshore wind farms to the cost of the nuclear power project proposed at Hinkley Point, which will get £92.50 (about €125) per MWh for 35 years, Anholt delivers electricity that is 40% cheaper, Horns Rev3 will deliver electricity that is 58% cheaper and Saeby 60% cheaper…” click here for more
