Increasing Power Plant Efficiency with Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (sCO2) Power Cycles

GTI and partners Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and GE Research are revolutionizing future power generation with design and construction of the 10 MWe Supercritical Transformational Electric Power (STEP) pilot plant known as STEP Demo. The project is being funded by the U.S. Department of Energy/National Energy Technology Laboratory (U.S. DOE/NETL) and numerous other industry partners.

Construction of the building to house the pilot plant on SwRI’s campus in San Antonio, TX is complete, and component manufacturing and equipment installation is progressing. The project will advance the sCO2 Brayton power cycle and demonstrate a next-generation, fully integrated functional electricity generating power plant with dramatically improved efficiencies, economics, and environmental performance.
