Texas Clean Energy Project to Sell Power to CPS Energy in 25-year PPA | [cached]
Stated DOE's Thomas Sarkus, a Division Director within the Office of Major Demonstrations at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), who attended Monday's event: "The U.S. Department of Energy applauds CPS Energy for its progressive energy stance that includes voluntarily phasing out old coal plants and replacing them with cleaner, low-carbon technologies such as the Texas Clean Energy Project, a DOE-sponsored, breakthrough, clean-coal project.

Better Technology - Coal Gasification [cached]
The DOE already has its eye on coal gasification technology, Tom Sarkus said.
"IGCC is a priority ? we think it's the wave of the future," said Sarkus, division director for advanced energy systems at DOE's National Energy Technology Laboratory.
"We have so much coal that's readily accessible to us, and that's why the president and the Department of Energy are making clean coal technology a very high priority."
According to DOE projections, there are enough known coal reserves in the United States to power the country for up to 300 years.
Finding a way to convert that coal into clean electrical energy is a major research goal at the DOE, Sarkus said.
He said more than half of America's electric power comes from 1,100 coal-burning plants, like CU's Southwest Power Station and James River Power Station.
More of the coal's energy is captured that way ? significantly more, Sarkus said.
Sarkus said an IGCC plant would cost up to 20 percent more to build than a conventional coal-burning plant. That extra cost has deterred many utilities from considering such a plant.(Legal testimony given in Utah says "...the cost of a new coal IGCC unit is competitive with the cost of a new well-controlled pulverized coal unit.SB)
But if Springfield can submit a proposal that would test a new aspect of IGCC technology, it might qualify for DOE funding, he said.
But Sarkus and Galloway said they believe some kind of CO2 controls are inevitable.
Sarkus said finding a way to deal with CO2 is a DOE priority that drew no proposals from utilities in the most recent round of funding requests.
"The next round will be in a year and a half, and this would be a very good time for Springfield to start working on a proposal like that," Sarkus said.
