Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Looking at the appendixes starting on page 78 that appears to be the case.

At least with pricing carbon capture investments.  In terms of infrastructure to actually sequester the carbon, not a carbon tax.....

I'm not so sure that they've brought fuel costs into the analysis.

As you pointed out someplace else (forgot where) part of the beauty of wind farms is that the long term fuel cost is locked in, because its free.  No price volatility.

One of the things that I've noted looking at European vs US electricity markets is that there's less of a spread between residential and industrial rates.

I wonder how that plays into the expansion of the industry.

If industrial users are guaranteed a lower rate that means that they have less incentive to seek out deals that allow them to lock in costs in the long term.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
