Stringent Emission Regulations Cannot Downplay the Importance of Coal in the Global Power Mix

Summary

Growing concerns about global warming have led to an increased push for the use of efficient and less carbon-intensive resources, while downplaying coal. However, as the global economy keeps growing, in order to meet the high energy demand, it will not be possible to immediately replace coal-fired power. For the same reason, there have been significant developments in establishing the use of emission control technologies, such as Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC), and Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) in the coal-based plants in order to reduce the impact of stringent emission control policies. Technological evolution with the use of fuel-flexible IGCC enabling the co-firing of biomass energy resources will result in further reductions of carbon emissions.

Scope

- Market prospects of coal fired power in the global power mix
- Key factors supporting the vital role of coal in providing energy security
- Future and current market potential offered by fuel flexible coal based gasification technology
- Regulatory support for clean coal technologies for enhancing the role of fuel-flexibility in power generation

Reasons to buy

- Identify the key growth and investment opportunities in coal fired power generation
- Gain insights on the growing need for multi-fuel flexibility in power generation.
- Developing strategies to develop and deploy fuel-flexibility for improved plant economics
- Facilitate decision-making based on upcoming industry developments with clean coal technologies in thermal power generation
