Welcome to csp.guru!

This page holds technical and economic data on all operating concentrating solar power stations and of stations under construction (larger than 10 MW).

Click on a plant in the world map below to access the detailed data for that station. You can also access key station data in the full table .

The entire dataset can be downloaded, see below for further information. You can download either the most recent but unverified version directly exported from csp.guru, or as a static verified and versioned dataset.

For detailed description of the data collection procedure, please see the original article Lilliestam et al. (2017), Nature Energy, doi: 10.1038/nenergy.2017.94.
