March, 2011

What options are you considering to keep your coal-fired power plants compliant with impending EPA requirements?

Intensified focus on EPA requirements has turned up the pressure on fossil generation requiring utilities to reduce sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants. To comply with the impending EPA requirements, utilities are faced with the following choices:

  • Retrofit with remediation technology
  • Repower or replace with gas-fired generation
  • Retire aging coal assets
