AEP CEO Michael Morris previews company's plans for Ohio clean coal facility

Last year, American Electric Power Corp. announced that it would build a 1,000 megawatt coal-fired power plant, equipped with state-of-the-art gasification technology to remove pollutants. During a speech before the National Coal Council in Washington, D.C., Morris explains the progress his company has made with the integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) facility it wants to build in Ohio. He also talks about the factors driving AEP's decision, including new interest in the utility sector from General Electric Co., plus the belief that the federal government will someday limit carbon dioxide emissions.
