Digital Solutions to Improve Coal Plant

Efficiency, Flexibility, and Emissions

Electricity is the foundation of global growth; however, over one billion people have insufficient power today. By 2025, we’ll see a 50 percent increase in the demand for power. To meet these challenges, there is a dynamic transformation under way across the entire energy value network to maximize opportunities across the business and its operations.

With nearly 900 billion tons of reserves worldwide and about 27% of those reserves in the United States, coal remains a vital part of the energy mix. Today, more than 40% of the world’s electricity is produced from coal. As the economics of coal power generation have become tighter and regulations become even stricter, new innovations will be needed to meet these growing energy demands.

Advanced technologies, such as digital solutions can help coal-fired power plants in the United States and globally deliver better performance, greater efficiencies and improved reliability to drive smarter business outcomes.  

Join us as Peter Kirk discusses the future of coal powered assets and game-changing innovations.
