The goal of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to expand the market potential for CSP in the United States beyond stand-alone utility-scale power generating systems. The projects in this funding opportunity are expected to validate a 10 cents-per-kilowatt-hour (?/kWh; in real 2013$) or lower Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) from solar energy, without any subsidy, demonstrating market competitiveness with current intermediate power generation. Additionally, these projects are expected to validate and provide data on CSP hybrid system performance and power generation profile, which is necessary to convince grid operators, regulators and utilities to incorporate CSP systems into existing or future fossil plants.
