The potential for existing boilers to switch fuels from natural gas or oil to oil, coal, or a coal derived fuel is examined. Twenty possible fuel switching scenarios are identified. The technical aspects of switching fuels, the capital and operating costs, and the environmental effects are discussed. The influence of legislation such as the Energy Supply and Environmental Coordination Act of 1974 (ESECA), the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 (EPCA), and the National Energy Plan, is considered.
