Abstract The invention involves an advanced heat exchange network to enable a new oxy-hybrid power cycle that intrinsically produces a pure stream of carbon dioxide ready for use or compression and transport for storage. In order to meet the UK's 80% CO2 emission reduction target by 2050, and recognising the UK's continuing reliance on gas fired power generation, a substantial technology evolution is required over conventional technologies. This project will exploit advanced heat transfer technology and heat integration in the form of an unfired supercritical boiler providing all the steam required for a new oxyhybrid turbine cycle for electricity generation. This technology is capable of eliminating the energy and capital cost penalties associated with the introduction of CCS. The plant can be adapted with further features that will improve its power output and efficiency over a wide range of loads
