SUGAR LAND, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 01/02/13 -- Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The future of North American new-build coal-fired generation is not as bleak as some analysts have claimed, according to Brock Ramey, North American Power manager for Industrial Info.

"When gas prices in some regional markets were about $3.25 or less per million British thermal units (MMBtu), utilities increased their dispatch of gas-fired power, and coal generation was temporarily idled," Ramey said. "But now that gas prices have risen to $3.75 or more per MMBtu in some regional markets, coal generation is being more frequently dispatched."
