Power Generation

The power generation sector presents many opportunities for GHGSat data to make a difference. It can be used to supplement and validate other monitoring methods in use at coal-fired power plants or provide a full picture of CO2 emissions at these sites over time if no other system is installed. At natural-gas fired power plants, our satellites can detect and quantify methane leaks which could undermine their reduced CO2 emissions compared to coal-fired plants. The system can also be used to quantify methane emissions at some hydroelectric facilities where methane is generated in the reservoir.
