Veselin Aleksandrov Posted July 18, 2019 Share Posted July 18, 2019 Hello,It would be very helpful if LCOE calculations are introduced in the software and visible in financial report.We analize more and more our projects using this parameter, since Feed-in-tariffs are not available for some new installations in our part of the world and this is a tendency more and more.As a start at least simple formula could be introduced, considering mainly CAPEX, OPEX, energy for 25 years with the degradation.Since we have all needed parameters in the software probably it is posible.We aim to optimize the systems in order to reach lowest LCOE, which is not always highest energy output - for example for specific project an east-west fixed system could achieve almost same LCOE despite the significant lower production, but due to the lower CAPEX - cheaper structure, high ground coverage ratio, same fixed expences - project development, roads, fences, etc.Also it would be very helpful if there is instrument to calculate LCOE as function of selected parameter:- calculate LCOE if AC/DC ratio of inverter is changed- if tilt is changed- if project location changesetc.Best regards!
