Our world is in need of #sustainable #energy supplies. Efficient #gas #power plants almost hold the key to success:

China is hungry – especially for electricity. The world’s second-largest economy consumes 4,000 terawatt-hours (TWh) of power every year. Annual economic growth of roughly ten percent has enabled China to lift hundreds of millions of people out of poverty in recent years, but this development has led to an immense increase in the country’s hunger for consumer goods, resources, and energy. According to the United Nations, the country will have 1.4 billion people by 2025. The International Energy Agency reports that Chinese oil consumption alone is set to rise by 70 percent from 2009 to 2015. By then China will account for 42 percent of global oil demand. The country’s electricity consumption has tripled in the last decade, and it may double again to 8,000 TWh by 2030. China is therefore looking to make power generation more efficient. Plans call for a radical reduction of C...
