Cutting Carbon

Ep. 5: Electricity, Hold the Carbon

Episode Summary

We don't have to invent new technology to begin to combat climate change today. Gas-fired generation is flexible, affordable, reliable, and produces less than half CO2 of coal, while coal-to-gas switching represents a fast and effective win for emissions reduction. But, what technology options exist for gas turbines to reduce carbon emissions.
