The world is breaking the fossil fuel chains and heading toward a renewable future (created by author)

Let me take you on an energetic journey.

It’s 2009, and you are the leader of a struggling, low-income nation tasked with a monumental decision. One in four of your citizens live in darkness, yearning for light. Millions more can barely afford to keep the lights on, rationing their usage to the bare minimum.

Your mission? To power up your country, to dissipate the shadows of energy poverty, to light up the lives of your citizens. But the decision is not as simple as flipping a switch.

Because you have to weigh the costs of different power sources, balance the scales of finance and feasibility, and finally answer the burning question: What is the lowest price your people would need to pay to ensure a power plant sustains itself over time?

The decision that could redefine your nation’s destiny is in your hands. The levelized cost of energy (LCOE) is your cost compass. Think of LCOE as the price tag for breaking even to justify the existence of the power plant, considering both its construction and operational costs.
