Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) – Solar Thermal Power Generation Technology Model

Your energy technology selection expert has developed a CSP Project Finance Model for use by CSP project developers.

It can help you prepare the feasibility study and design or optimize the various options to give you the lowest Levelized cost of energy (LCOE).

Given inputs on installed unit capacity, number of units, capacity factor, all-in capital cost $/kW, fixed O&M cost $/kW/year and variable O&M cost $/MWh, you can calibrate the model to meet your annual generation and determine first year tariff, short-run marginal running cost SRMC and long-run marginal running cost LRMC (also known as LCOE).

A complete write-up on Solar Energy is found in this power point presentation:

Solar Energy

The CSP project finance model is based on a single template that allows you to compare various renewable energy, conventional, fossil, nuclear, hybrid and energy storage power generation technologies.

A demo version is available for your trial runs below:

Hurry, download the model and try using your own data and see the economic feasibility of your proposal.

You may email the energy technology selection expert to order the actual (non demo) model:
