Title: New, environmentally friendly power plants being sought

Abstract

The common theme at the Power-Gen International Conference in November 2006 was: the world's appetite for electricity must be fed with new power plant construction. These new plants must be designed and built in an environmentally responsible way. The article reports on keynote highlights, on presentations on carbon capture and on panel discussions. TXU plans to add 9.1 GW of new coal-fired generation in Texas by 2011. Bradley Jones said the company plans to spend $2 billion on carbon sequestration research. David Ekins described a carbon capture effort that EPRI and We Energies are pursuing. Joubert, of Alstom, thought that IGCC might one day become competitive but not before 2020. 2 photos.
