Conventional coal-fired power plants, which make water boil to generate steam that activates a turbine, have
efficiency of about 32%. Supercritical power plants operate at temperatures and pressures above the critical point of
water, i.e. above the temperature and pressure at which the liquid and gas phases of water coexist in equilibrium.
This results in higher efficiencies ± above 45%. Supercritical power plants require less coal per megawatt-hour,
leading to lower emissions (including CO2 and mercury), higher efficiency and lower fuel costs per megawatt.
