How NREL is improving GHG calculations for power plants: A new analysis shows more precise estimates of emission...

With clean energy and energy security important in the national dialogue, the financial, power generation, power purchase, and policy making communities are seeking more precise information on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from various sources of energy. These stakeholders need credible estimates of GHG emissions from power plants (both existing and planned) to develop and comply with environmental and energy requirements, and to help quantify the financial implications of a potential future carbon cost for specific electricity generation technologies. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL) life-cycle assessment (LCA) harmonization project gives these stakeholders more precise estimates of GHG emissions for renewable and conventional electricity generation technologies. The research also clarifies inconsistent and conflicting estimates in the published literatu...
