Economic objectives

Enabling market uptake and industrial deployment of sCO2 Brayton cycle from 2025

  • To establish sCO2 Brayton cycle as optimal coal and lignite power plants’ solution in terms of costs through optimized design and components’ integration

  • To optimize the sCO2 cycle’s operation and maintenance costs through selection of resilient materials and components and through dynamic I&C solution, increasing by 5% the capacity factor of coal plant

  • To reach a Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) of the sCO2 Brayton cycle for coal and lignite power plants 6 to 16% lower than the LCOE of future supercritical coal plant with CCS (See Impact 1).
