  1. Duke Energy CEO Predicts Coal Will Vanish From Its Mix

    By Editors of Power Engineering Duke Energy Corp . CEO Lynn Good said she’s preparing Duke for the eventual disappearance of coal generation from the utility’s portfolio, she said today in an interview with Bloomberg . “I think we’ll still be operating coal in 2030,” she said. “Whether we will be in 2040 I think is a question, or in 2050.” Good told Bloomberg she plans to build out Piedmont’s pipeline system to support its transition to gas-fired generation. The changing balance of coal and natural gas prices aren’t the only reason for the planned shift. “If something breaks at that coal plant, or I have to put capital into it for some reason, these are really tough decisions,” Good told Bloomberg. Duke Energy has already pursued additional gas assets, especially with its proposed $4.9 billion merger with Piedmont Natural Gas . That deal is expected to close by the end of 2016 after approval by the North Carolina Utilities Commission.
