Fraunhofer: Cost Solar 2 ct/kwh in 2050


“In a few years, solar energy plants will deliver the most inexpensive power available in many parts of the world. By 2025, the cost of producing power in central and southern Europe will have declined to between 4 and 6 cents per kilowatt hour, and by 2050 to as low as 2 to 4 cents.” These are the main conclusions of a study by the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems commissioned by the German think tank Agora Energiewende.

Editor: as we have repeatedly said, there is no long-term energy problem and a solar economy is very well possible. But the longer we wait with the transition, the deeper the dip will be.
