Abstract This study was undertaken in response to an EPA/IERL-RTP request to examine in a 'quick look' fashion the economic tradeoffs of using purchased utility electricity as an alternative to on-site combustion of fossil fuels for industrial steam generation. Specifically, the impacts of marginal or incremental cost pricing of electricity and increasingly stringent industrial boiler emission controls were examined for a 44 MWt (150,000,000 Btu/hr heat input) industrial boiler. Data were compared to determine if electricity, despite its lower overall thermal efficiency, could be economically competitive with direct firing of fossil fuels in this size boiler.
