1st Workshop for IEA High Efficiency, Low Emissions Coal Technology Roadmap


Paris: 8 June 2011 - 9 June 2011

Organiser: IEA

Background

The IEA is developing a High Efficiency, Low Emissions (HELE) Coal Technology Roadmap. It will be an important addition to the series of technology roadmaps the IEA has been publishing since 2009. The HELE Coal technology Roadmap will focus on coal use in power generation. It will consider the role of coal-fired power generation in reducing global energy-related CO2 emissions substantially bellow current levels.

The IEA plans to complete the roadmap during the first quarter of 2012. As for other roadmaps, the content will be based on information, advice and direction received from many sources, but particularly from those industry, government and non-government experts attending roadmap workshops.

The first workshop was chaired by Dr. John TOPPER, Managing Director of the IEA Clean Coal Centre.
