Hydropower Cost Index

Once a year we present an up-to-date index of the ongoing cost of a hydroelectric power plant, so that energy companies can assess the various costs of operations.

The Hydropower Cost Index is also important when evaluating and purchasing insurance policies and premiums. The index reports the various costs of earth and rock work, concrete work, mechanical equipment, electrical equipment, and overall index for aboveground and underground plants.

The costs shown are based on, among other things:
• Construction Index E84 for building and construction

• Copper prices from the London Metal Exchange

• Statistical information from Statistics Sweden, SCB
