Duke Energy Progress, a Duke Energy Corp. subsidiary, said its natural gas-fired Asheville Combined Cycle Station in Arden, NC, is online and producing 560 MW for customers across the Carolinas. The $817 million natural gas station consists of two 280 MW power blocks, four generators and more than 18,000 components. The first power block became…
The number of natural gas-fired peaking plants in California has increased sharply, to 79 from 24, in the first 15 years of this century, though none have been opened in recent years as the state increasingly moves to phase out fossil fuels to facilitate decarbonization. That trend is a reflection of one of the key…
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is close to finalizing regulations to implement a tax credit for carbon capture and storage (CCS) that could help more than two dozen proposed projects move beyond the initial engineering and design stages.
Competitive Power Ventures Inc. (CPV) said this week that it is prepared to burn ethane at its new natural gas-fired power plant in Central Pennsylvania after successfully testing new technology.
Acknowledging that reducing natural gas in the power stack is causing near-term worries about reliability, California regulators on Thursday took steps to bolster supplies for the next four years, including delaying the retirement of some gas-fired coastal, water-cooled generation plants.
Construction of what would be one of Ohio’s largest natural gas-fired power plants has started in the heart of the Utica Shale, despite nuclear power subsidies set to take effect next year that have derailed other projects.
A unit of General Electric Corp. (GE) plans to close a one-of-its-kind natural gas-fired baseload generation plant in Southern California using turbine technology that has never taken hold commercially.
It’s been in the works for a decade now, but the result of California’s ban on the use of seawater to cool a series of mostly natural gas-fired coastal electric generation plants is expected to have an impact on the state’s carbon footprint in the decade to come.
After years of planning and protest, NRG Energy Inc. sold a repowered peaking facility at its Encina Power Station, a natural gas- and oil-fired power plant in Southern California, but the company will continue to own and operate a 95-acre coastal site where the power station sits.
