The Executive Committee of the IEA Clean Coal Centre has confirmed that the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has become a sponsor of the Centre.
The Centre is a technology collaboration programme of the International Energy Agency and is based in the UK. Ironically, the UK government recently cancelled its CCS competition and is no longer a member or a sponsor of the Centre.
Its purpose is to facilitate international co-operation on clean coal related issues, and provides objective and independent information and analysis on the efficient and sustainable use of coal, with a focus on how coal can be used more effectively, efficiently and cleanly, to minimise its environmental impact while providing cost effective energy. This includes the impact of coal related policies and regulations, clean coal technology developments and deployment, emissions control technologies and global coal markets.
As a Sponsor, DEWA will benefit from access to all of the expertise at the Centre. This includes the study reports, analysis, workshops, conference, and databases. About fifteen reports are published each year covering the different aspects of clean coal technologies and policies.
