The state of U.S. power generation

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) released a report July 18 on the near- and long-term cost, performance, and technology status for eight central-station power generation technologies likely to dominate the U.S. generation mix over the next two decades.

The analysis, Integrated Generation Technology Options, examines pulverized coal, integrated gasification combined-cycle (IGCC), natural gas combined-cycle (NGCC), nuclear, biomass, wind, solar photovoltaic (PV), and concentrating solar thermal generation technologies from the nearterm to 2025. It presents an overview of each technology, including current and projected performance and costs, major technical issues and future development direction and trends, business issues and environmental concerns and considerations.
