Discussion paper on lifecycle assessments in auctions

This discussion paper captures the ideas of the wind industry on the possible role of lifecycle assessments in wind energy auctions. The paper outlines what lifecycle assessments are and why they do not meet the principles that WindEurope identified for non-price criteria. There are also practical concerns on the relevance of lifecycle assessment-based criteria due to how auctions are run. Finally, the paper spells out several action the wind industry will take to improve the procedures for lifecycle assessments to increase comparability.
