Webinars

At IEA Clean Coal Centre webinars our expert authors give presentations on the findings of their latest reports. Webinars usually take place on the second Wednesday of the month at midday (UK Time). If you are unable to attend the event live, they can be viewed at any time after the event from this page.

Increasing the flexibility of coal-fired power plants is the subject for the next webinar, which will be presented by Dr Colin Henderson on Wednesday 6 August at midday (UK time).

Coal-fired power plants are increasingly required to balance power grids by compensating for the variable electricity supply from renewable energy sources. For this, high flexibility is needed, in terms of possessing resilience to frequent start-ups, meeting major and rapid load changes, and providing frequency control duties. This report reviews the means available and under development for achieving the flexibility. Potential damage mechanisms are well known, and the necessary flexibility can be achieved with acceptable impacts on component life, efficiency and emissions. Designs are being developed to enable flexibility in future plants.

 

IEA CCC webinars are free to attend, but a one-off registration is required with brightTALK ltd, who host our webinar channel. Register and view our webinars by clicking on the title of the one you wish to attend, then scroll down and click 'Attend'.
