Data Change Log

The following lists the publications that were used to add data to TCDB.

You can click the link to go to the source web site (if available). Click the Historic or Projection links to see the data charted in TCDB. The publication data will be used in calculating LCOE, LCOF, LCOD (whichever is applicable). This does mean that not all the data might be displayed. For example, with projection data, only one technology is displayed at a time.
