Many of the world's largest economies, including the US and China, have based their prosperity on the availability of electricity from coal. However coal is also an extremely dirty fuel and its combustion is one of the main sources of carbon dioxide, responsible for global warming. The future of coal burning for power generation depends on adapting to new environmental restrictions.

Features and benefits

- Realize up to date competitive intelligence through a comprehensive review of coal fired power generation technologies concepts.

- Assess the emerging trends in coal fired power generation technologies.

- Identify which key trends will offer the greatest growth potential and learn which technology trends are likely to allow greater market impact.

- Compare how manufacturers are developing coal fired power generation technologies.

- Quantify costs of coal fired power generation technologies, with comparisons against other forms of power generation technology.

Highlights

Coal accounts for over 40% of total global electrical generation - more than 1,700TWh in 2010 - and the installed generating capacity in 2010 was around 1,500GW READ MORE >
