Case Study from UK: Cost and financing aspects of community renewable energy projects.
This Case Study report presents the results of data collection and analysis on community and commercial wind and solar PV installations in the UK. It has been based on information available as at the end of June 2015 and does not refer to any policy changes that may occur after this date.
Through direct interviews and obtaining data from recent projects Ricardo AEA have data for 26 community projects, 11 wind (two being shared ownership deals between communities and a commercial developer) and 15 solar PV plus 11 commercial wind projects. They chose to collect data on completed projects – so that the cost data represented actual, rather than predicted, costs.
