Thanks, I got the files, and I think I was able to reproduce the issue.

I can actually see only one technology having new capacity installed in2014: RHUNSOLE101. And that new capacity is well explained by the following facts:

 • The technology has zero investment costs in 2014 (you have defined investment costs for it in the years 2016 and 2020, and you are using interpolation option 5 for the investment costs, which means forward interpolation/extrapolation, and so there is thus no investment costs defined for it before 2016);

 • Contrary to what you said before, you have NOT defined any START parameter for this technology, and so the model can invest into it already in 2014, and with the zero investment costs you have implicitly defined for it (because of the interpolation option 5).

To fix this issue, I would therefore recommend to 1) remove any interpolation options 5 for the investment costs of all new technologies you have (I can see several solar technologies having such in the RCA.DD file); and 2) define START=YYYY for all technologies that should not have new capacity installed before year YYYY.

Hope that helps.
