Roadmap to Promote Transfer and Dissemination of Clean Coal Technologies in APEC Region - EWG 08 2015A
Project Description and Background
Fossil fuels, especially coal, will continue to play significant roles in the energy mix of Asia-Pacific region in long term. This project responds to APEC Energy Ministers’ instruction for the EWG (through their 2014 Beijing Declaration) to promote clean coal technologies (CCTs), so as to enhance cooperation in developing and applying CCTs and to ensure sustainable energy development in APEC region.
This project will build a CCTs database through information collection and field survey work, providing a technology category list and priority technical review. This project will hold periodical seminars, where experts can share their up-to-date information and best practices on CCTs, provide recommendations on promoting technology transfer and dissemination, making all partners clear about the significance and prospects of CCTs. A final workshop will be held in China in April 2016 to assess implementation plans and development strategies of CCTs deployment in some economies. A detailed summary report will be submitted.
l To create a platform for all APEC economies to participate in the activities of CCTs, and to build a CCTs database providing a technology category list and priority technical review.
l To develop and provide recommendations on promoting technology transfer and dissemination of CCTs.
l To make selected partner beneficiaries clear about the significance and prospects of CCTs and to enhance common understanding among APEC economies on development of Low Carbon Technology.
