Technology Action Plan

As worldwide populations and industrial growth reach new heights over the next 20 years, electricity demand is projected to increase substantially. Fossil fuels, particularly coal, will continue to be a vital energy source for the power sector in many countries. At the same time, coal-based power generation is one of the largest sources of global CO2 emissions. High-efficiency, low-emissions (HELE) coal technologies can help reduce the carbon emissions produced by coal-fired power generation while enabling the energy source to continue to meet growing power demand.
