Dataset Open Access
This is the first version of openCSP. It has been produced by merging the 2019-09-01 version of the csp.guru dataset with the data contained in the NREL/Solarpaces database by Johan Lilliestam and Richard Thonig. Moreover, the data on all Chinese CSP stations was checked and improved by Chuncheng Zang and Alina Gilmanova of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
