One of the most important aspects of the levelised cost of energy (LCOE) is the discount rate used. High capital, low O&M projects (e.g. wind, solar) prefer a very low discount rate. Low capital, high O&M (e.g. fossil) prefer a higher discount rate. Who "wins" very much depends on the cost of capital.
