A clean-coal plant in upstate New York is facing funding issues, as they currently need $430 million to move forward with the plant. The NRG Energy plant at Huntley Station would use new technology to capture and store carbon dioxide. The cost of the plant would be close to $1.5 billion. Last week more than three dozen government officials met with representatives of NRG Energy to discuss the status of the project. One possibility would be the Department of Energy and the reconfigured FutureGen project. Lee Davis, VP of development at NRG, said, "We are much further along with sequestration than many of our competitors across the United States." If the funding is received they hope to have the plant up and running by 2013.
