Product Description
The presentation was presented at the Coal-Gen 2015 Conference on 12/9/15. Coal power generation and consumption have both been on a downward trend for the last six years, based on reduced overall demand and having been supplanted by natural gas-fired power generation. This paper exhibits hybrid energy system concepts that will enable coal to be competitive in today’s electric power market on both a cost and emissions basis. These hybrid system pathways will utilize renewables, biomass, and even waste streams to help coal plants generate power more efficiently, more cost effectively, and with lower emissions than current state-of-the-art.
