The Management of Public Engagement at the Local, State and Federal Levels for the Tenaska Trailblazer Energy Center Project
Published:01 Dec 2010
The Tenaska Trailblazer Energy Center (‘Trailblazer’ or ‘the Project’) is a cutting-edge coal-fueled electric generating plant currently under development just east of Sweetwater,Texas, United States of America (USA). It will be among the first such plants in the USA to include commercial-scale post-combustion carbon capture equipment in its initial design.
The Project will be among the cleanest coal-fueled power plants in the USA and will make a significant contribution toward efforts to curb carbon dioxide emissions. Over the past three years, the development team has made significant strides in educating the public and gaining support for this ground-breaking Project at the local, state and Federal level. This report discusses the steps Tenaska has taken to educate the public, inform them of the facts, and seek to gain support for the Project.
