This article discusses CO2-free power generation plants and next- generation power systems. Advanced clean coal technologies and PC power plants are examined. Precombustion/postcombustion decarbonization processes for process schemes for CO2-free power generation plants are discussed, and new developments in fuel decarbonization are considered. Next-generation power systems using natural-gas simple- and combined-cycle turbine systems and decentralized co-generation plants running on natural gas projected to provide the bulk of new power generation capacity worldwide, together with proposed turbine/fuel cell hybrid systems, are also discussed. This article is a companion to Part A, which addresses improving steam generator technology, repowering, and electric power generation in Japan.
