Welcome!

Thank you for taking time to review and complete the following NREL survey on CSP technology costs. The survey is broken into several parts: Direct Capital Costs for items such as site preparation, solar field, thermal energy storage, power block, followed by Contingency and Indirect Capital Costs, and Operating & Maintenance Costs.

Please note that none of these costs include incentives or credits. SAM accounts for financial incentives separately. 

You may leave questions blank if you do not feel you have reliable information on those technologies, but please provide as much information as possible. 

Your assistance helps us ensure that we provide representative cost values in the latest SAM release. We estimate it will take less than 20 minutes to complete this survey.
