    • Under Stress

      Low natural gas prices, stricter environmental regulations for coal plants, a surge in intermittent sources of renewable power and the growth of demand-response programs have led power producers to run their gas-fired plants longer and harder.

    • History & Challenges of a Successful NOx Reduction Project

      Alliant Energy - Wisconsin Power and Light (WPL) recently completed installation and startup of an SCR at its Edgewater Generating Station Unit 5, located in Sheboygan County, WI.

    • Advancements in Wind Turbine Technology: Improving Efficiency and Reducing Cost

      Wind power capacity has increased dramatically in the U.S. recently - and accompanying that, the turbines that produce it have become more powerful, more efficient and more affordable for power producers.

    • Preparing for Section 316(b)

      Though the Clean Water Act Section 316(b) rule was not finalized as scheduled on Jan. 14, there are still steps that plant owners and manufacturers can take to prepare for the rule's passage.

      • Hitachi Sees Strong Market for Energy Storage in North America

        Wind, solar and other forms of intermittent energy are being rapidly deployed throughout North America as a result of the convergence of lower costs, state and federal tax credits, local and state Renewable Portfolio Standards, and increasing consumer demand for clean energy sources.

    • Power Plant Profile

      • Southcentral Power Project: Efficiency in Central Anchorage

        The Southcentral Power Project may technically be an expansion of an existing power plant, but the facility - a 200-MW, natural gas-fired power plant located in Anchorage - stands apart from many others because of its efficiency and how it was designed to operate in a difficult climate.
