SUGAR LAND--January 7, 2018--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--The U.S. Power Generation Industry accelerated its closure of coal-fired power plants in 2018, hitting the off switch on 11.4 gigawatts (GW). This trend is hardly new: Nearly all of the utility-scale power plants in the U.S. that were retired from 2008 through 2017 were fueled by fossil fuels, largely coal or natural gas steam, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Industrial Info is tracking 15 closure-related projects at U.S. fossil-fuel power plants that are expected to kick off in 2019, including decommissionings, dismantlements and demolitions.

Within this article: Details on some of the fossil-fuel plant closures set for this year, including those from major companies such as Tennessee Valley Authority (NYSE:TVE), Alliant Energy Corporation (NYSE:LNT) and Evergy Incorporated (NYSE:EVRG).
