Researchers looked at the most polluting power plants in the world. They concluded that the top 5% of most polluting plants are responsible for 73% of the world’s emissions for electricity generation. These plants are very inefficient, polluting between 28% and 75% more than their peers.
A “quick win” would be to convert these plants to natural gas, which would reduce emissions of the whole energy sector by almost 30%. Capture the carbon, and that reduction would be almost 50%. Wow!
