Working Party on Fossil Fuels (WPFF)


The objectives of the WPFF are to encourage energy security and environmental protection by monitoring fossil fuel technology-related policies and trends of IEA member and key partner countries.  The WPFF has been instrumental in bringing carbon capture and storage (CCS) and clean coal technologies to the forefront of policy debates.  It works closely with the IEA Coal Industry Advisory Board, the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute and the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum.

IEA Technology Collaboration Programmes (IEA TCPs) in the fossil fuel portfolio include:     

  • Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR TCP)
  • Fluidised Bed Conversion (FBC TCP)
  • Clean Coal Centre (CCC TCP)
  • Gas and Oil (GOTCP)
  • Greenhouse Gas R&D (GHG TCP)
