    • Powering Asia's energy future

      As Asia's thirst for power continues, we profile some of the recent new projects and upgrades that are helping to meet this demand.

    • Modernizing old plants to meet new demands

      Four major challenges for power plants today are cycling operations which can lead to accelerated equipment damage, minimizing heat rate, reducing emissions, and improving personnel productivity to tackle expertise shortage, writes Jonas Berge

    • Playing it cool

      The Asia-Pacific region is committed to setting up sustainable energy investments based on a generation mix featuring a larger portion of renewables.

    • Unlocking Mongolia's wind potential

      Mongolia has a staggering 1100 GW of potential wind power capacity, but financing and building projects is problematic.

    • Circulating fluidized bed scrubber vs spray dryer absorber

      The converging US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules for reducing mercury, metals, acid gases, organic compounds, SO2, NOx and particulates have ratcheted up the pressure on coal-fired generators to quickly reduce a variety of pollutants.

    • The potential of plasma

      Westinghouse Plasma Corporation (WPC) is working to make landfills obsolete through the deployment of its plasma gasification technology.

    • The London Array turns two

      The 630 MW London Array - the world's largest operational offshore wind farm, covering an area of 100 km2 - has been online since 2012, and fully operational since 2013.

    • Adapting to the energy transition

      There was a perceptible change of mood among the European power market at this year's POWER-GEN Europe in Amsterdam.

  • Industry Highlights

    Anyone who thought that Asia's thirst for more power in the recent years would be quenched by a steady flow of coal-fired plants at the expense of clean energy is steadily being proved wrong.

  • Project and Technology Update

    GE Power Generation Services has been selected to provide long-term maintenance services for two GE gas turbines at the Beijing Taiyanggong power plant.
