Emerging Technologies

  • Larry E. Stoddard


Power generation technologies are continually being improved. In many cases, the improvements are small modifications of existing technologies; in other cases, the improvements come in the form of significantly different technological configurations. The impetus for change, whether a technology modification or technology revolution, is the improvement of cost and performance.
