Committee On Climate Change Admit Wind Power Is Dearer Than CCGTPosted: July 12, 2016

You may remember claims a few weeks ago from Renewable UK, the lobby group for renewable energy, that onshore wind isnow the cheapest form of new generation in Britain.
As I showed in this post at the time, the claims were simply bunkum. The cost of onshore wind in reality is currently around twice the price of CCGT.
It seems that John Gummer’s Committee on Climate Change agrees with me!
