Product Description
This presentation was given at the National Academy of Sciences, 91st Annual Transportation Research Board Meeting in Washington, D.C. on January 25. NETL reports natural gas fired power production GHG emissions to be 53% lower than average base load coal fired power production. The presentation provides an overview of NETL's greenhouse gas results for various types of natural gas, including Marcellus Shale, and compares the results for natural gas fired power production to coal fired power production. The presentation focused on understanding the variability and uncertainty in recent natural gas GHG estimates.
