Aluminum Extruders Council Aluminum in Solar: Manufacturing Cost Analysis of CSP Structures

Anthony Mascarin, Ted Hannibal, IBIS Associates, Inc.


ABSTRACT—IBIS Associates has been engaged to make an unbiased assessment of the relative
economic differences of using steel and aluminum Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) collector structures.
This assessment focused on developing an understanding of the direct manufacturing, delivery, assembly,
and operation costs of structures based on both material systems, along with the impact that changes in
materials markets and geographic regions will have on these economics.
