In the comparison of the investment costs of various electric power generation plants, renewable sources of power generation perform relatively poorly.

Information and ideas:
In addition to this table, it is recommended that the students look at the comparison of power generation costs in the “Comparison of electricity production costs from fossil and renewable energy sources” information sheet. That information sheet shows that renewable electricity is now cost-efficient.
The students could discuss why there is still opposition to changes that would have lasting benefits for the climate, environment, economy, and each and every person.
