An updated edition of High Temperature Superconductivity: The Products and Their Benefits will be released by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory. This report takes five classes of electric equipment (motors, transformers, generators, underground cable and fault current limiters) and provides background information, market analysis and a predicted commercialization date for each application.

Another new report, The Pollutant Emissions Reduction Potential of Superconductive Technologies, concludes that electric power applications using superconductivity have the potential to save an accumulated 619 million tons of CO2 through 2020, which equates to 169 million tons of carbon. Significant savings in NOx and SO2 also are indicated in the report.
