Meeting new challenges with clean coal power generation
The U.S. and People’s Republic of China are playing central roles in the world’s transition to a clean energy economy now and in the years ahead by reducing emissions, shifting to cleaner energy sources, and implementing advanced coal technologies.
We focus on emerging commercial, field, and development projects in the US and China to achieve rapid progress in advanced coal technology development, demonstration, and enhancement.
Phase II 2016-2020 Five Key Areas
Building onto research and making new demonstrations of power generation technology.
Facilitating collaboration and knowledge sharing on existing and planned CCUS demonstrations in both US and China.
Establishing technologies, markets existing for the production of clean water from saline sources, and general economics.
The design theory and methods for demonstration of these new technologies will be applied to industry scale demonstration.
Modeling the impact of power plant cycling and developing model-based optimal mitigation strategies.
