Power Generation - Fossil
Demand is driven by industrial, commercial, and residential needs for electrical power, which depends mainly on economic activity and population growth. Government regulations, emissions, and clean air requirements determine plant profitability.
Our high-quality power transmission products, motors, and controls help reduce excess downtime for more reliable scheduling of maintenance.
Control & Monitoring
Power plants are highly automated with monitoring equipment, sensing changes in loads based on system demands. Our customized control solutions combine control, monitoring, and MMI functionality saving time, to increase uptime and deliver high paybacks.

A powerhouse contacted the Regal team regarding the monitoring of Kop-Flex® couplings to improve performance along with monitoring critical operations within the operation. Past practices were to walk the plant, looking for problems, and to have a reactive maintenance model versus a proactive forward looking monitoring system. However, as maintenance budgets were cut, the frequency of coupling failures and the need for coupling replacements and repairs increased.Learn More

United States Industry Overview
The Coal and Natural Gas Power industry has wavered over the past five years, resulting in stagnant revenue growth. While coal-based power generation still dominates the power production realm, the industry has become increasingly focused on natural gas. While natural gas prices have traditionally been low, the glut in production, as a result of the shale boom, has pushed prices even lower, hastening the shift toward this power source.
Electric Power Consumption
Electric power consumption represents the total amount of electricity consumed in the United States, the majority of which is sourced from coal and natural gas power. As electric power consumption increases, demand for the electricity produced by coal and natural gas power plants rises as well, leading to growth in industry revenue.
Value of Utilities Construction
The value of utilities construction measures the amount of capital spent annually on the construction of power plants. Growth in the value of utilities construction suggests growth in the quantity of electricity generated nationally, increasing the potential for expansion in industry revenue. Slight growth is projected through 2022.
