The efficiencies of four power processes for wet peat have been studied. These include gas turbine cycles, steam power cycles, and combinations thereof. It is concluded that wet peat can be used in power processes with reasonable efficiency. The paper suggests that wet peat power processes could be cost competitive relative to conventional power production.
