Next tables contain the economic parameters that have been introduced in the Coal power plant (without CCS) model.

Next tables contain the economic parameters that have been introduced in the Coal power plant (with CCS) model. The investment for the plants with CCS has been considered to be 60% [3] higher respect to the same technology without CCS for SC, USC and A-USC, while the IGCC-CCS is assumed to have 20% [3] higher investment cost.

Specific investment [CHF2010/kWe]

MIN 2'229 2'598 3'840 1'421

O&M cost [CHF2010/kWe]
2035-2050
SC USC A-USC IGCC
86 [1]93.9 * 93.9 *110 [1]

The O&M cost for USC-CCS and A-USC-CCS is based on the following formulas:

$O\&M_{USC-CCS} = \frac{O\&M_{SC-CCS}}{O\&M_{SC}}*O\&M_{US}$

$O\&M_{A-USC-CCS} = \frac{O\&M_{SC-CCS}}{O\&M_{SC}}*O\&M_{A-USC}$

Lifetime [years] 40 [5]
