U.S coal-fired power makes 22 percent rally this year, EIA predicts

U.S coal-fired power makes 22 percent rally this year, EIA predicts

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. […]
West Virginia PSC approves plans to upgrade coal-fired plants and keep open through 2040

West Virginia PSC approves plans to upgrade coal-fired plants and keep open through 2040

West Virginia state regulators have approved the request of local utilities to keep three coal-fired power plants open through the next two decades. The order by the state’s Public Service Commission gives new leases on life for the Amos, Mountaineer and Mitchell generating stations, which altogether total close to 6 GW in generation capacity. Two other states, Virginia and Kentucky, […]
Lakeland Electric selects S&L to lead EPCM work on 120-MW RICE project to replace coal-fired plant in Florida

Lakeland Electric selects S&L to lead EPCM work on 120-MW RICE project to replace coal-fired plant in Florida

Sargent & Lundy will handle engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) management of a planned 120-MW gas-fired reciprocating internal combustion engine (RICE) power plant in Lakeland, Florida. Lakeland Electric awarded the EPCM contract for the project to be built on the existing McIntosh Power Plant site. Sargent & Lundy has led several RICE projects in the region. MAN Energy Solutions […]
Capital Power converting coal-fired Genesee units to combined cycle gas-fired technologies by 2024

Capital Power converting coal-fired Genesee units to combined cycle gas-fired technologies by 2024

Canadian-based electricity producer Capital Power and contractor Burns & McDonnell are halfway through design work on a project to repower and convert coal-fired units to burn lower emitting natural gas at a generation plant near Edmonton. Capital Power is repowering Units 1 and 2 at the Genesee Generating Station, replacing coal-fired steam generators with gas-fired combined cycle technology. The utility […]
JERA studying co-firing attributes of ammonia in burners at coal-fired Japanese power station

JERA studying co-firing attributes of ammonia in burners at coal-fired Japanese power station

Japanese power generator JERA and partner IHI Corp. have started to utilize a small amount of fuel ammonia in another one of its units at a coal-fired power plant. JERA and IHI are demonstrating small volume utilization in Unit 5 at JERA’s Hekinan Thermal Power Station. The purpose of the project is to develop a co-firing burner to be used […]
Rise Light & Power acquires former NJ coal-fired plant as site for offshore wind interconnector

Rise Light & Power acquires former NJ coal-fired plant as site for offshore wind interconnector

A renewable energy developer has acquired the site of a retired New Jersey coal-fired power plant in hopes of converting it into an interconnection hub for offshore wind turbine energy delivered to onshore customers. Rise Light & Power has announced plans to build a project called the Outerbridge Renewable Connector in South Amboy, N.J. Once operational, Outerbridge would receive the […]
Ultimate irony: Climate change forcing coal-fired comeback in many regions

Ultimate irony: Climate change forcing coal-fired comeback in many regions

Climate change is pegged as the disastrous result of emissions from coal-fired plants and other fossil-fuel emitters. Long-term studies seem to back this up as the ultimate cause and effect of the Industrial Age. Perhaps the ultimate irony of dramatic weather events, then, is that they are forcing a coal comeback and sustaining gas-fired generation in many regions this year. […]
Low wind generation, high gas prices leads UK grid to ask for West Burton A coal-fired power

Low wind generation, high gas prices leads UK grid to ask for West Burton A coal-fired power

The United Kingdom is quickly phasing out coal-fired power in its electricity mix and only operates a handful of such stations nationwide. This week, however, coal-fired power was brought up to the forefront, if only temporarily, as the national grid dealt with low capacity wind-energy output and high natural gas prices during a warm weather streak, according to multiple news […]
Historic Martin Drake coal-fired plant retired in Colorado Springs

Historic Martin Drake coal-fired plant retired in Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs Utilities shut down its nearly 100-year-old coal-fired generation plant in downtown last month, a sign of the move to renewable and lower-carbon power. The Martin Drake Power Plant ceased generation on Aug. 27, three weeks after it received the final coal train delivery. In its place, Utilities is adopting temporary modular gas-fired gen-sets on the site in a […]
Bituminous plants represent nearly 70 percent of U.S. coal-fired retirements since 2011

Bituminous plants represent nearly 70 percent of U.S. coal-fired retirements since 2011

Bituminous coal, which dominated the U.S. power generation landscape for decades, is now taking the biggest hit as coal-fired plants are increasingly retired. A new U.S. Energy Information Administration report noted that units fired by bituminous coal accounted for 68 percent of coal-fired plant retirements in the past decade. Close to 90 GW has been retired from the onetime 318-GW […]
