For existing power generation capacity, net revenues before accounting for depreciation are
at similar levels in the 450 Scenario and the New Policies Scenario, at around $15.6 trillion.
In the 450 ...
Scenario, net revenues increase by around $900 billion each for both existing
nuclear and renewables capacity (that receive the market price in liberalised markets),
compared with the New Policies Scenario (Figure 3.8). This gain offsets a similar loss in
net revenues by fossil-fuel plants of $1.9 trillion. Coal power plants without CCS bear the
burden of the relative revenue reductions in the 450 Scenario, as rising CO2 costs and
reduced operating hours outweigh the impact of lower fossil-fuel prices, and power plants
with higher emissions are more affected than those with lower emissions. Net revenues
from gas-fired power plants increase slightly overall in the 450 Scenario, compared with the
New Policies Scenario, with higher revenues from more efficient power plants, and some
coal to gas substitution, more than offseting lower revenues from less efficient gas plant
