Study Assesses Wind and Solar Value in U.S. Power Markets over Time

June 21, 2021

A recent study from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory looks at how wind and solar market value changed over time at utility-scale power plants across major power markets. The study concluded that, despite a decline over time, the average market values of wind and solar in 2019 were still higher than their respective average generation costs. Read more about the findings and how future market, technology, cost, and deployment trends may affect the value/cost relationship and how to mitigate declining market value.
