Making the sun shine at night: Comparing the Cost of Dispatchable Concentrating Solar Power and Photovoltaics with Storage: Balmorel input data revised

Schöniger, Franziska; Thonig, Richard; Resch, Gustav; Lilliestam, Johan

Description of the dataset

This dataset holds all Balmorel model input data as well as the Balmorel code used for the scenarios of the paper 'Making the Sun Shine at Night: Comparing the Cost of Dispatchable Concentrating Solar Power and Photovoltaics with Storage' submitted to 'Energy Sources, Part B: Economics, Planning, and Policy.'

Data format

We provide the data in form of the data folders holding the .inc files for all scenarios.

The original Balmorel source code is available under https://github.com/balmorelcommunity/Balmorel under the ISC license. It was adapted in order to include a new technology generating electricity from heat (GETOH). The inputs for this development were kindly supported by DTU, Ea Energy Analyses and Jasper Geipel (TU Wien) with previously done works.
