Background

This event follows a roadmap methodology training organised by these partners last June 2012 in Moscow, where IEA experts provided capacity building on how to strengthen the Russian approach to roadmap development at the national level for various technologies, including cleaner coal. At the workshop in December, the IEA will release the Russian version of the IEA High Efficiency Low Emission (HELE) Coal Roadmap and provide further inputs to the policy and technology related aspects of deploying clean coal technologies in Russia.
