SUGAR LAND--December 20, 2021--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Well over a fourth of the operating U.S. coal-fired generation capacity, representing 59 gigawatts (GW), is planned to retire by 2035, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Coal-fired power plants are a major source of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions at a time when many states with clean energy standards are seeking to reduce or completely phase out coal fired-generation, and cheaper, more environmentally-friendly alternative sources, such as renewable and natural gas-fired generation, are on the rise.
