Decarbonization Avenue : Better O&M of solar power plants

Challenges

Long start-up times for IGCC plants

While IGCC plants have proven to provide high efficiencies, given the relatively long start-up time needed for integrated systems (compared to pulverising coal combustion units) IGCC plants may only be suitable for base-load operation.
