Chapter: “Sources and Uses.” < www.nap.edu > A typical coal-fired electrical plant might be 38% efficient, so a little more than one-third of the chemical energy content of the fuel is ultimately converted to usable electricity. … In natural gas combined cycle, or NGCC, power plants, we now have technology that takes the waste heat from a natural gas turbine and uses it to power a steam turbine, resulting in a power plant that is as much as 60% efficient.5 Similar technologies are being developed for use in coal power plants. [183] Calculated with data from the report: “April 2016 Monthly Energy Review.” U.

In addition, the heat of the burning gas is then used to make steam, which powers a steam turbine. After World War II, the nation began building its pipeline network. The data points represent the energy content per unit volume or weight of the fuels themselves, not including the storage tanks or other equipment that the fuels require. Department of Energy drilled a 5-mile long, 25-feet diameter tunnel into the Yucca Mountain, along with a 2-mile long tunnel that branches off of it. [617] [618] [619] * A 2002 federal law approved the Yucca site for permanent nuclear waste storage. [620] [621] * By 2006, Minnesota had banned the construction of new nuclear power plants, and 11 other states had restricted the construction of new plants until certain provisions for long-term disposal of nuclear waste are met. [622] [623] [624] * In June 2008, the Bush administration Department of Energy (DOE) submitted an application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for approval to construct a waste repository at Yucca Mountain. [625] * In March 2009, the Obama administration DOE announced that it was going to terminate the Yucca Mountain repository.
