SUGAR LAND--January 13, 2021--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--The U.S. coal-fired power sector continues to see a dim future. Although the 2.7 gigawatts (GW) of coal-fired capacity scheduled to retire in 2021 represents a slowdown from previous years, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), power producers consumed 30% less coal in the first half of 2020 than during the same period in 2019. Plants remaining operational will depend on consistent maintenance to remain efficient. Industrial Info is tracking 38 maintenance-related projects at coal-fired power plants across the U.S. that are set to begin before the end of the first quarter.

Within this article: Details on some of the highest-valued maintenance projects set to kick off from January through March, including those from major companies such as PacifiCorp, Berkshire Hathaway Incorporated (NYSE:BRK.A), Dominion Energy (NYSE:D), ArcLight Capital Holdings LLC, Vistra Energy Corporation (NYSE:VST), Talen Energy Corporation, Otter Tail Corporation (NASDAQ:OTTR) and Evergy (NYSE:EVRG).
