While combined cycle gas turbine facilities emit roughly 60% less CO2 per kilowatt hour than conventional coal generators, over the long term controlling the CO2 footprint of gas-fired power via carbon capture and storage (CCS) will be essential for achieving our carbon reduction goals.
Today, however, U.S. RD&D efforts have concentrated almost exclusively on developing and deploying CCS for coal. To address this shortfall in power sector planning, and in view of the expanded demand likely for gas-fired generation (See this 2010 ACSF report), ACSF convened a full-day program in November 2011 in Washington D.C. This event brought together top experts from the power sector, equipment manufacturers, Wall Street, research institutes, the government and the environmental community.
