This webinar will presented the findings of a study to assess the economic viability of natural gas combined-cycle power plants with CO2 capture and storage (NGCC-CCS) in climate change mitigation strategies, emphasising the use of renewable energy and natural gas for electric power generation. In this study, the cost of NGCC-CCS was compared on a level playing field to those of intermittent renewable energy systems (IRES) and energy storage technologies as a means of reducing power sector greenhouse gas emissions. Specifically, the levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) of NGCC-CCS was compared to that of offshore wind, photovoltaic systems, and concentrated solar power (CSP) together with pumped hydro storage (PHS), compressed air energy storage (CAES), and Li-ion, ZEBRA and Zn-Br battery storage systems. The cost of NGCC-CCS as a backup technology in conjunction with IRES also was assessed.
