Title: ''Dirty, old'' coal plants: silk purse or sow's ear?

Abstract

The current debate over what to do with ''dirty, old'' power plants is severely hampered by a narrow and rigid decision frame. Adopting a broader, more flexible decision frame, and using improved analytical tools suited for that frame, can make a real and important difference in the strategy for such plants, creating both economic and environmental benefits.
