Quick Overview
Air-Cooled Condensers for Improved Power Plant Water Management in the US

Summary

Generating electricity from thermal power plants requires there to be available a reliable and abundant source of fresh water. The power plants in the US are estimated to consume almost 39% of the country’s total fresh water resources. The growing economy will increase the demand for electricity, leading to increased pressure on the available water resources. The growing demand for water from the power generating utilities will have to compete with the demand from other sectors such as agriculture, municipality and mining, slowing the development process. The limited and further depletion of fresh water resources in many parts of the US has presented an opportunity for using cooling technologies in the power plant that can save water. Of all the presently available technologies, the use of air-cooled condenser systems by utilities has gained significant importance, offering a potential for improved power plant water management.
