Current and future cost and performance data (see above) are sourced from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA's) Annual Energy Outlook 2020 (AEO2020) projections (EIA, 2020). The ATB does not assess any scenarios of cost and performance advances in these technologies beyond what is captured in the AEO2020 Reference scenario. For all the technology types covered here, the sections below note default procedures and assumptions, and the table below notes exceptions to these defaults.
