Energy: Power Stations

Volume 710: debated on Monday 18 May 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their projection of the replacement cost for all power stations in the United Kingdom which are due to be phased out of production in the next 12 years. [HL3407]

Capital costs for different generating technologies vary and it cannot be assumed that replacement generation will be on a like-for-like basis.

The Redpoint Report on Dynamics of GB Electricity Generation Investment, for the 2007 energy White Paper, lists capital costs for various types of generation (www.berr.gov.uk/files/file38972.pdf page 75).
