Deliverable 7.5 Report on experience curves and economies of scale
This deliverable focuses on the analysis of investment cost reduction for power-to-gas applications through experience curves and economies of scale. Economies of scale refers solely to the effect of real cost reductions through an increase of the production volume and not to cost reductions in consequence of an increase in size in form of upscaling. To get a detailed view of technological learning, a component-based approach was developed with the model CoLLeCT- Component Level Learning Curve Tool. This allows for comparisons of learning effects between different technologies, investigation of cost structure developments, and consideration of spill over effects from concurrent technology sectors.
