Description

The objective of this study is to present European siting and emission requirements for coal-fired and natural gas generating facilities, and provide an overview of the European standardization process. A summary of the functioning of the European Union is presented. Relevant organizations are identified, current trends are presented.

This is a complex area, there is much happening tangentially that affects the power generating facilities. The electricity and gas markets are opened, there is pressure on the generators and governments to provide a steady energy supply to consumers, and pressure to close nuclear power facilities.
