    Objective: 

    Recognising India’s growing role in the international coal market, the World Coal Association (WCA) commissioned external analysis to consider future demand, CO2 abatement costs and levelised electricity cost for India, including comparison with Europe. This paper provides a high-level summary of the outcomes of this analysis.

  • A Global Platform for Accelerating Coal Efficiency

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, May 9, 2016
    Objective: 

    This is a concept paper on the Platform for Accelerating Coal Efficiency (PACE). The vision of PACE would be that for countries choosing to use coal, the most efficient power plant technology possible is deployed. The overriding objective would be to raise the global average efficiency of coal-fired power plants and so minimise CO2 emissions which will otherwise be emitted while maintaining legitimate economic development and poverty alleviation efforts.

  • The power of high efficienty coal

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, May 9, 2016
    Objective: 

    As the Paris Agreement is formalised and NDCs are standardised, it is a fair to assume that other countries will look to HELE coal technologies as part of their emissions reductions plans.
