Comprehensive data on comparative energy costs, renewables, carbon and biofuels

Follow major trends in the global renewables power sector with our energy transition data, which provides a wealth of market-oriented data on comparative energy costs, renewable energy, carbon and biofuels. Banks, consulting firms, oil companies and key market participants make actionable comparisons across technologies and regions to effectively inform their business strategy.


  • Comparative power generation costs for eight forms of renewable energy, four forms of fossil fuel energy, and nuclear power
  • Carbon and natural gas prices for fuel switching and renewable energy parity
  • Power generation by source across a range of OECD and non-OECD countries
  • Biofuel prices and market fundamentals
  • Global carbon prices
  • Electricity prices from around the world
  • Track market performance of clean energy versus other equity classes
  • Data is backdated to at least 2010 and in some cases as far as 2000
  • Data source can be downloaded and customized by the user

Our energy transition data is also available through the Energy Transition Service.

The Energy Transition Service delivers a comprehensive package of news, data, analysis and research to help you navigate the major risks tied to the rapidly shifting energy landscape.

  • Our latest ESG Climate Risk Benchmark report shows that companies are continuing to step up action, but that investor demands are also escalating. We have adjusted our methodology in response to evolving investor priorities, which are increasingly focused on corporate commitments to long-term and intermediate emissions-reduction goals. Even with these adjustments in our methodology, general peer group trends are largely unchanged from the last benchmark report. European firms dominate the top tier, while less engaged NOCs are concentrated toward the bottom of the ranking. Independents and US majors fill out the middle tier. Yet some companies made marked improvements. Ecopetrol, for example, jumped eight spots to 14th of 27, after announcing net-zero Scopes 1 and 2 emissions goals. Indeed, a growing number of companies have set net-zero Scopes 1 and 2 targets – and we expect more announcements to follow in 2021-22, from US majors, independents and some NOCs.

  • Comprehensive data on power generation costs for 13 forms of renewable and conventional energy, including capital, operational, fuel and carbon costs. Also, the oil, gas and coal prices at which alternative technologies match the lifetime costs of a fossil fuel-fired power plant in the Middle East and developing Asia, as well as details of the key parameters used in the calculations, with data back to 2010.
