DOE calls for comment on energy technology program

The formal solicitation to be issued early in 2001 will offer up to $95 million for advanced coal-based technologies that can improve the reliability of the U.S. electric power system. Eligible projects could include technologies that boost the efficiency of operating power plants–generating more megawatts from the same amount of fuel–or lower emissions and allow plants to stay in operation in compliance with environmental standards. The program is also open to technologies that improve the economics and overall performance of coal-fired power plants.

MILWAUKEE – Wisconsin Electric and SkyGen Energy, a Northbrook, Ill. subsidiary of Calpine Corp. (NYSE: CPN) of San Jose, Calif., today announced a ten-year power purchase agreement under which SkyGen will provide the utility with 550 megawatts (MW) of electricity.
