This paper deals with the monitoring of a solar thermal field setup with concentrating linear Fresnel collectors. This work describes types of sensors installed in the field and energy performance measurements, presenting a detailed analysis about uncertainty propagation. The results are critically discussed taking into account the different perspectives of detailed performance assessment and the industrial needs of real installations.
