New IEAGHG report: Beyond LCOE: Value of technologies in different generation and grid scenarios

Since its introduction, the levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) has become ubiquitous in the evaluation and comparison of power generation technologies. While it is a readily accessible metric, it focuses exclusively on the cost of electricity produced from a given asset, or set of assets, and neglects to address the provision of ancillary service...

New IEAGHG Report: Understanding the cost of reducing water usage in coal and gas fired power plants with CCS

Energy and water consumption are closely connected. The Energy-Water nexus defines the relationship between energy and water to ensure the availability of both resources: Energy production consumes significant amounts of water; and equally, providing water demands energy. Moreover, power generation can impact water resources and increased electrici...

New IEAGHG Report: The Status and Challenges of CO2 Shipping Infrastructures

One of the challenges that faces CCS is how to transport significant volumes of compressed CO2 from point sources to sites established for large-scale storage, especially offshore. Pipelines are one solution, but their viability depends on the volume to be transported and if the CO2 comes from a variety of dispersed sources.The other option is to u...
