Life Cycle Cost Analysis

Life Cycle Cost Analysis

There are many factors that influence design decisions, and it can often be challenging to compare and contrast system costs and benefits given the number of variables at play. Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) is a means of estimating and comparing the total costs of building or system options over their lifetime, in today’s dollars. LCCA provides the next level of financial planning above and beyond relying on first costs along in making design and construction decisions. NEI utilizes a LCCA tool to help teams calculate:

• Annual Operating Cost Savings
• Lifetime Net Present Value
• Return on Investment (ROI)
• Savings to Investment Ratio (SIR)
• Life Cycle Social Cost of Carbon
