Electrical Power Plants and Emissions ± Lecture#24 ± Energy Consumption ± Energy Consumption and Emissions ± Coal Fired Power Plants ± Emission Calculations ± ICP #22: GHG Impact of Coal vs. Natural Gas ± ICP #23: Coal Fired Power Plant Emissions ± Reading: Rubin Ch 5. (Pg. 162-175). Sections Overarching Questions: Power Plant Emissions ± How much energy is used by humans each year? USA residents? Where does this energy come from? ± What sources of energy are used for electricity production? How is the relative distribution different from that for total energy? ± Which countries emit the most CO 2 to the atmosphere? ± What trends exist with respect to overall use of electricity? ± What are typical yearly emissions from all USA power plants? How are such emissions calculated as a function of fuel source? Energy and Electricity Sources: Global Statistics Energy Units: E kW-hr (kJ/s)(hr)(3600s/hr) kW-hr 3600kJ Power Units: P kW kJ/s E/t Total Energy Consumption (1970-1997) 1 Quadrillion Btu (1x10 15 ) = 1x10 18 J = 3x10 11 kWhr World Energy Use per Capita (1997) 1 Quadrillion Btu (1x10 15 ) = 1x10 18 J = 3x10 11 kWhr
