White paper: What must power plants do to cope with surging global energy demand?
Worldwide demand for energy is predicted to spike by 49% over the next 15 years, and fossil fuel plants are expected to shoulder the bulk of the load. Yet many power plants worldwide face efficiency issues, emissions restrictions, and the risk of system failures. How can owners and managers keep up with increased energy demands, while maintaining safety, reducing environmental impact, and increasing profitability?
With over 150 years of experience helping power plants achieve true operational efficiency, TÜV SÜD has found the ideal solution. We recommend an integrated testing and improvement programme for power plants to cope with the coming surge in global power consumption.
An integrated programme helps power plants
- Increase rated capacity by 4% to 8%
- Raise performance capacity by 8% to 10%
- Extend lifespan by up to 20 years
- Improve return on investment by cutting down unscheduled downtime and emissions
