The competitiveness conditions for out-of-market technologies are largely affected by financial factors. In the conventional framework of LCOE analysis approach this work performs an impact analysis of a simple energy policy hypothesis about the price tax credit on electricity production performed in a three-technology market: a molten carbonate fuel cell (MCFC), a conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) and a small gas turbine (sGT): the results concerns an elaboration on the Monte Carlo simulation outcome of the effects under investor's point of view, using the payback-time as a proxy of the investment attractiveness. Final results show the correlation between the chosen energy policy measure and the target variable.
