Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
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.
