Title: National power survey. Energy conversion research

Abstract

The Task Force Report evaluates more than 40 technologies that produce bulk electric energy from other forms of energy. The candidate for R and D funding were grouped according to time frame and type. The allocation of technologies in the near-term (1974--1985) are: Low-BTU coal gasification; fluidized-bed combustion; advanced gas turbine-steam cycle; fuel cell plants; fossil-fuel plant effluent control; solid waste combustion; converter reactor R and D; high-level radioactive waste disposal, light water breeder reactor; solar energy heating and cooling; cooling water heat rejection; fossil-fuel plant by-product applications; and energy storage (batteries, compressed air, flywheel, innovative pumped hydro). The allocation of technologies in the intermediate-term (1985--2000) are: Geothermal Power; High-Temperature Gas Reactor-Gas Turbine Plant; Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor; Gas Cooled Fast Breeder Reactor; Hydrogen Production; Magnetohydrodynamics; Binary and other cycles; Superconducting generators; and Advanced energy storage methods (magnetic, hydrogen, thermal, etc.). Allocation of technologies evaluated for the long-term (beyond 2000) are: fusion power and solar bulk power systems.
