Research and Markets has announced the addition of 'The Future of Clean Coal: The Impact of New Technologies and Legislation on the Economics of Coal-Fired Power Generation' to their offering. Coal accounts for 40% of global electricity supply and the proportion is set to remain steady, even as global generating capacity rises. Coal-fired generating capacity may double by 2030, which would have a severe effect on carbon dioxide emissions unless new, cleaner technologies can be implemented.

'The Future of Clean Coal: The Impact of New Technologies and Legislation on the Economics of Coal-Fired Power Generation' is a new management report that analyses the state of modern coal-fired power generation.

It analyses the technologies, efficiency and economics of conventional coal-fired power generation, emission control systems and advanced/zero emission systems. It analyses the key drivers of the new technologies and forecasts the impact of clean coal technologies on the cost of power compared to both conventional coal-fired power generation and renewable energy.

Assess how new technologies will affect coal-fired power generation in the short, medium and long term with this new report.

The Report Authors' portfolio of energy management reports are designed to help you make well informed and timely business decisions. We understand the problems facing today's energy executives when trying to drive your business forward, and appreciate the importance of accurate, up-to-date, incisive product, market and company analysis. We help you to crystallize your business decisions.

The strength of our energy research and analysis is derived from access to unparalleled databases and libraries of information and the use of proprietary analytic techniques. These reports are authored by independent experts and contain findings garnered from dedicated primary research. Our authors' leading positions secure them access to interview key executives and to establish which issues will be of greatest strategic significance for the industry.

Our energy portfolio of reports can be used across a wide range of business functions to assess market conditions and devise future strategies and cover the oil, gas, electricity and utility sectors and key energy issues including emerging markets, new technologies and carbon sequestration.

Some key findings from this report...

+ By 2030 coal will still supply close to 40% of global electricity.

+ This will lead to an increase in global coal-fired capacity by between 50% and 100%.

+ Coal capacity in China may reach 660GW in China by 2020 and 160GW in India. The US is likely to add between 100GW and 150GW of new capacity by 2030, whilst demand is likely to fall within the EU.

+ Short term demands for reductions in carbon dioxide emissions (to 2020) will be met by increased use of highly efficient coal-fired power plants based on supercritical and ultrasupercritical pulverized coal technology.

+ Carbon dioxide capture and sequestration technologies will enter the market beyond 2020, allowing virtually zero emission coal-fired plants to be built. The rate of their introduction will depend on global agreement on greenhouse gas control.

+ Coal-fired power generation remains competitive with the best renewable technologies, even after accounting for the costs of carbon capture technology.

FPL Energy Signs Deal With Citrus Energy For First Of Its Kind Ethanol Plant
Juno Beach FL (SPX) Jul 23, 2007
FPL Energy, LLC, a subsidiary of FPL Group, has announced that it has signed a letter of intent with Citrus Energy, of Boca Raton, FL, to develop the first ever commercial scale citrus peel to ethanol plant. The cellulosic ethanol plant will be owned and operated by FPL Energy and is expected to produce four million gallons of ethanol per year. It will be located on the grounds of a local Florida citrus processor.
