Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to describe the economic and financing feasibility assessment carried out for a Coal GasificationFuel CellCogeneration GFC Project for 4 specific sites Scranton Army Ammunition Plant in Pennsylvania, Ft. Greely Army Base in Alaska, Ft. Hood Army Base in Texas, and Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. The assessment presented in this document is part of an overall technical, economic, and financing feasibility study of power generation by a fuel cell using synthetic gas produced from coal. The concept involves selling the electric power and thermal output from the GFC plant to the site facility under a price structure that would produce significant energy-related cost savings for the site for the 20 years, 1990-2009.
