Advanced Power Generation Technologies: Getting Efficiency at the Source

January 14, 2013


The Advanced UltraSuperCritical (A-USC) Materials Development Program is a 10-year effort led by Energy Industries of Ohio, working in coordination with four U.S. boiler and two U.S. steam turbine manufacturers, U.S. DOE national laboratories, and other partners. The program focuses on evaluating identified candidate alloys to meet Advanced UltraSuperCritical operating conditions of 760°C and 5,000 psi. Current coal fired power plants operate at an average of 35% efficiency, whereas A-USC plants might achieve operating efficiencies of 50% with a consequent 30% reduction of CO2 emissions. Project partners include: National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), Oak Ridge National Laboratory, EPRI, Ohio Coal Development Office, General Electric, Alstom, Babcock Power, Babcock & Wilcox Co., and Foster Wheeler. Funding is provided by the U.S. DOE, Ohio Coal Development Office, and 20% from Industry.

Speakers: Bob Purgert, President, Energy Industries of Ohio (confirmed)
Robert Romanosky, Technology Manager–Advanced Research, NETL (invited)
