The Department of Energy officially announced today that it was dropping its support for the FutureGen project, a day after the speculation began. The new plan for DOE is to gather information from industry members by March 3rd on how to add carbon capture and storage technology to commercial scale proposed power plants. One option would be to add the technology to some of the over 30 proposed integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) plants. The DOE could fund those types of projects to push forward with carbon capture and storage technology.
