The Department of Energy’s early stage research for the Coal FIRST (Flexible, Innovative, Resilient, Small, Transformative) Initiative will support the development of the coal power plant of the future to provide secure, stable, and reliable power. Coal FIRST power plant concepts will be capable of flexible operation to meet the needs of the grid; use innovative and cutting-edge components that improve efficiency and achieve zero or near-zero emissions, including net-negative carbon dioxide emissions; provide resilient power to Americans; be small compared to today’s conventional utility-scale coal power plants; and transform how coal power plant technologies are designed and manufactured.
