Assessing the social value of offshore wind procurement.
In February 2022, the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) asked the University of Delaware’s Special Initiative on Offshore Wind published a report looking at the state's options for offshore wind procurement. The report converts the IWG's SC-GHG into a cost per megawatt hour. 1 . This value is used to value the benefits of offshore wind displacing polluting generators. 2 This is added to a value of health benefits for a total socail cost. 3
$93 - $122 per MWh based on 2021 IWG values.
