Exelon Generation will utilize a $50 million federal cost-share award to fully digitalize the control room at its Limerick Generating Station in Pennsylvania. Once completed, the Limerick plant would be the first fully digital safety system upgrade at a U.S. nuclear power facility. Exelon will spend $42 million while the U.S. Department of Energy will kick in $8 million. “Through […]
A new ACEEE report shows how better energy efficiency and demand response programs could give ERCOT 11 GW of flexible demand capacity.
Power Engineering International The UK’s Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has named the East Coast Cluster (ECC) as a ‘Track-1’ cluster, putting it on course for deployment by the mid-2020s. The Cluster is a huge carbon capture and storage proposal located on the East coast of the UK in the North Sea and is a collaboration between […]
An Australian power generator has selected the gas turbines it will utilize as a means to provide resource adequacy at times of renewable intermittency. Snowy Hydro Ltd is building the 660-MW Hunger Power Project in New South Wales. Mitsubishi Power will supply two of its M701F gas turbines and auxiliary equipment. Snowy Hydro is hoping to complete the Hunter plant […]
Nuclear equipment firm BWXT’s Canadian subsidiary is partnering with GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy on an engineering and procurement deal to support design and manufacturing of a small modular nuclear reactor. The agreement would facilitate development work on the BWRX-300 SMR. The projected model is a 300-MW water-cooled reactor and is the 10th evolution of the boiling water reactor design. The […]
If you want to follow the money in the energy sector, the trail might lead you straight to a battery storage project, according to venture capital data so far this year. A new funding, mergers and acquisition report by Mercom Capital counted some $11.4 billion raised in corporate funding for battery storage in 2021’s first nine months. The total capital […]
The U.S. electricity sector will generate 22 percent more coal-fired generation this year than in 2020, ending six straight years of precipitous declines. A new report by the federal Energy Information Administration, utilizing recent data, forecasts that coal-fired turbines will pick up the slack amidst higher natural gas prices. Gas-fired generation currently accounts for nearly 40 percent of the U.S. […]
By Michael Hill, Associated Press An obstacle to large-scale bitcoin mining is finding enough cheap energy to run the huge, power-gobbling computer arrays that create and transact cryptocurrency. One mining operation in central New York came up with a novel solution that has alarmed environmentalists. It uses its own power plant. Greenidge Generation runs a once-mothballed plant near the shore […]
The U.S. Department of Energy will provide $20 million in funding to help several carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) projects get off the ground—or in the ground. DOE announced financing for the quartet of regional CCUS deployments last week. Some estimates indicate that CCUS could reduce CO2 emissions from industrial resources significantly and contribute to the goal of net-zero […]
