Each year, the NREL ATB data are presented in an Excel workbook that contains detailed cost and performance data (both current and projected) for renewable and conventional technologies. The workbook contains a spreadsheet with data and calculations for each technology.
These CSV files summarize in database-friendly form the capital expenditures, operations expenditures, and capacity factor, as well as the financial assumptions and the levelized cost of energy, for each technology. They are re-formatted from the summary section of the spreadsheet, which documents the underlying calculations and data.
The charts on the ATB website were developed in a set of Tableau workbooks. These 17 workbooks are available as a single 6-MB zip file. You can download a single workbook by following the instructions below to download a PowerPoint, but click on “Tableau Workbook” in the download menu.
During the webinar describing the Electricity 2020 ATB, presenters described the analytical products in detail, shared examples of how they have been used, and provided an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.
For data from past years-and an accompanying summary and documentation-see the ATB archives.
