  1. Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "power plant efficiency percent" to get these possible sources:

    http://www.netl.doe.gov/publications/factsheets/project/Proj219.pdf
    http://w1.siemens.com/innovation/en/news_events/innovationnews/innovationnews_articles/energy/computer_simulation_increases_power_plant_efficiency.htm
    http://www.nmcco.com/education/facts/business/perform.htm

    Use <Find> to search articles for "percent."

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
