About Concentrating Solar Power at Sandia

The CSP team has archived thousands of documents in the CSP field, beginning in the early 1970’s when CSP research started to gain recognition in the renewable energy industry. At first, Sandia National Laboratories’ CSP team archived all of the literature as physical documents. Today, the library is upgraded and digitized, with literature rich in CSP technologies documents, modeling of CSP Plants, CSP engineered products, heliostat designs, heliostat operational systems, and much more.

If you would like to access the official site of library documents, visit the Office of Scientific and Technical Information, and search using names, dates, key words, topics, publications, etc.

For more information, contact the CSP Team.
