Costs are fundamental to decision-making about energy systems and associated change. However, there is no universal approach to the way in which such costs are scoped and analyzed. The idea of ‘truer costs’ is explored, here, by reviewing ways to characterize value in energy pathways. In doing so, the article aims to highlight how analytical choices on methods and less obvious dimensions can be significant. Potential directions for practical and theoretical development are also considered.
