This report supports development of the cleaner coal component of the Clean Energy Research and Deployment Initiative (CERDI) Deployment Center. The United States and India launched the CERDI Deployment Center to build on the India Mission of the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID/India’s) bilateral energy programs, notably the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Prevention (GEP) Project and the Energy Conservation and Commercialization (ECO) Program. The center assesses the potential for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction from existing coal‐fired power plants in India, building on USAID's ongoing and related programs, and cleaner coal technology research, development, and deployment (RD&D) opportunities. Clean coal technologies assessed in this report include supercritical and ultra‐supercritical pulverized coal combustion (PCC), integrated gasification combined cycles (IGCC), and carbon capture and sequestration (CCS).
