EPA Wants Energy Efficient Power Plants And Cement From Biomass

Someone should explain to the EPA/UCS that power plants are producers of electricity, not consumers. Asking a power plant to be energy efficient may not be a winning strategy.

    our own government is our worst enemy

    Energy providers can be energy efficient by using smart meters to shut off energy to EPA and other groups waning to Conserve energy. It would make it easier for them to conserve what they do not have.
    very time an announcement like this comes out, all the mentioned groups can have their power shut off.

    DITTOS

    Just shoot them.

    Co-worker always tells me “you can shit in one hand and wish in the other, guess which will fill up faster” Kind of applies here 🙂

    *feel free to edit if language is inappropriate, but it kind of sets a tone for the message.

    Thus a good reason to do away with the EPA.

    Well I can now understand why Ms Heinzerling resigned. It just remains to be seen how long that Ms Jackson and Ms McCarthy last before they realise just how much of their lives they’re about to spend giving evidence in zillions upon zillions of court cases.

    I know I am late to this thread, but I just want to indicate that using “efficiency” as a criteria for best available technology (BACT) is a chimera. By their very nature, power plants have been designed to wring every last bit of electricity out of the fuel that is consumed. In fact, we have been going backwards in efficiency as we hang ever more elaborate clean up systems on the back end of the plant, they all extract an energy penalty on the plant. Without major rebuilds or complete replacement of the plant itself, “efficiency” gains can only be be modest, at best. This is another feel good measure by the EPA to try to cope with the requirement that they give some guidance to the states to help define what BACT is. The result will be a great deal of contention and massive amounts of dollars paid to lawyers as this drags out in the courts for years.
