This report examines the capabilities of the current fossil fleet for flexible operations, design improvements for enhanced flexible operations in current and next-generation fossil plants, and the impacts of carbon capture and storage systems on the operational flexibility of current and new fossil plants.
How can coal remain competitive with low-carbon generation technologies? This modeling study developed a best-case scenario for a coal-fired power plant with carbon dioxide (CO2) capture to meet proposed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency emissions standards. It is one of a series of EPRI studies on ways to improve coal plant efficiency and optimize CO2 capture.
