Levelized Cost of Heating (LCOH) tool

The EWI Levelized Cost of Heating (LCOH) tool allows to calculate and compare the costs for six different technologies (gas condensing boilers, ground source heat pumps, air source heat pumps, pellet heating systems, gas-solar thermal hybrids, pellet-solar thermal hybrids) over their lifetime under different energy price scenarios.

Simulation results will be depicted for the 16 German states and for various building types and energy consumption classes. Underlying parameters, such as technology-related subsidies, efficiency improvements of individual technologies, or interest rates can be customized by the user in order to analyze and visualize different assumptions.
