Background information:
Electricity generation: Generation from natural gas, coal, nuclear, and renewable fuels is projected to increase through 2025 to meet growing demand for electricity and offset the projected retirement of existing generating capacity, mostly fossil steam capacity being displaced by more efficient natural-gas-fired combined-cycle capacity brought online in the past few years and still being constructed. The projected levels of generation from power plants using coal, nuclear, and renewable fuels are higher than in AE02002 due to higher projected natural gas prices and life extensions of nuclear plants.
Unit 4 of Book 1 22
The natural gas share of electricity generation is projected to increase from 17 percent in 2001 to 29 percent in 2025, including generation by electric utilities, IPPs, and CHP generators. The share from coal is projected to decline from 52 percent in 2001 to 47 percent in 2025 as a more competitive electricity industry invests in less capitalintensive and more efficient natural gas generation technologies. Nonetheless, coal remains the primary fuel for electricity generation through 2025, and AEO2003 projects that 74 gig watts of new coal-fired generating capacity will be constructed between 2001 and 20
