Economic Analysis Of Wind Projects

This Application Note presents and illustrates key elements associated with the economic analysis of wind energy projects and is aimed at municipalities, cooperatives, investors, and companies that want to install wind parks on their premises. Wind investments can provide an attractive risk/return profile, as well as other potential benefits such as risk diversification and a hedge against rising fuel prices. The increasing number of Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) being closed worldwide show that in some cases wind is already cost-competitive against traditional energy sources. Electricity consumers (the offtakers) are often better off by securing a fixed long-term price for wind electricity, instead of buying electricity from the grid at an uncertain (and arguably increasing) rate.
