There has been a major growth in domestic natural gas production, meaning increasingly low prices. Although coal still accounts for the majority for the US’s electricity generation, every day more and more companies are moving towards cleaner natural gas. Coal plants are being replaced with high efficiency, low maintenance gas turbines. This transition is considered a key step for the reduction of global greenhouse emissions. The manager engineer for General Electric stated “Advanced gas turbine technology gives customers one of the lowest installed costs per kilowatt. We see it as a staple for increased power generation around the world.” This is a great advancement, but we still have a lot of work to do!
