Retrofit water overspray system for power station gas turbines will allegedly reduce emissions by 40%, while reduces turbine fuel consumption by 25% and increases power generation by 25%.

This technique was employed as far back as 1950 when the first attempts to
commercialize jet transport required the extra thrust from water injected
jet engines. Naturally, the plane couldn't just carry gallons of water to
throw into the "fire" as it flew to its destination. The system was
employed on take off only.
It's a good technology, but I wonder if the few turbine based electricity
generators available for its employment make this a significant contributor
to the energy solution. Also, the statistics I see on natural gas markets
indicate to me that even if this increased efficiency by 90 percent, it may
not even be enough to hold the line.
