This data set shows the locations of more than 3000 North American power-generating facilities using fossil fuel sources, and includes information on each plant’s primary fuel; the generating capacity; and the air emissions of SO2, NOx, Hg, PM2.5, PM10, CH4, N2O, and CO2. The data were assembled primarily from the three North American countries’ national emission inventories: the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) in Canada; the National Emissions Inventory of Mexico (INEM), which is compiled from publicly available databases and reports; and the EPA emissions and Generation Resource Integrated Database (eGRID2007) and the EPA 2005 National Emissions Inventory (NEI) in the United States. These...
Development and diffusion of new renewable energy technologies play a central role in mitigating climate change. In this context, small-scale deep geothermal power has seen growing interest in recent years as an environmentally friendly, non-intermittent energy source with large technical potential. Following the first successful demonstration projects, the German geothermal industry is currently experiencing an internationally unparalleled growth. In this study we explore the factors driving this development, and the role geothermal power production could play in the future of the German electricity market. For this, we apply the scenario technique, based on literature analysis and interviews with companies operating...
