Clean Coal: DoE’s Decision to Restructure FutureGen Should be Based on a Comprehensive Analysis of Costs, Benefits, and Risks
Mark Gaffigan (au)
Coal-fired power plants generate about 1/2 of the nation's electricity and about 1/3 of its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, which contribute to climate change. In 2003, the DoE initiated FutureGen -- a commercial-scale, coal-fired power plant to incorporate integrated gasification combined cycle, an advanced generating technology, with carbon capture and storage. DoE's cost share was 74%, and industry partners agreed to fund the rest. Concerned about escalating costs, DoE restructured FutureGen. This report examines: (1) the original and restructured programs' goals; (2) similarities and differences between the new FutureGen and other DoE CCS programs; and (3) if the restructuring decision was based on sufficient info.
