LCOE refers to an average total cost to build and operate a power generator over its lifetime.

It was 1,144 won per 1 kWh in 2005 and dropped to 171 won in 2014. In 2018, the LCOE of solar power reached 121 won per 1 KWh.

The report said the United States and Great Britain are both expected to break the 100 won LCOE line in 2020.

The government of President Moon Jae-in aims to increase the use of renewable energy, including solar and wind power, to about 20 percent of total power consumption by 2030. (Yonhap)
