CLEAN COAL TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH REPORTS

IEA Clean Coal Centre provides unbiased information on the clean and efficient use of coal world-wide, including subjects related to clean coal technology. Funded by member countries and industrial sponsors IEA CCC products include in-depth topical reports available in PDF form, a range of workshop series, the Clean Coal Technologies Conference, and online databases of coal information and resources. IEA CCC also provides direct advice, facilitation of R & D and networks.

From 1 January 2013, our reports are available as free downloads for residents of member countries or employees of sponsoring organisations. Six months after publication reports are freely available to all. Non-members can purchase reports for £100 in the first 6 months after publication. Everyone wishing to obtain a report must be registered with the IEA Clean Centre before proceeding with the download.

China - policies, HELE technologies and CO2 reductions, CCC/269

Research Report: CCC/269

As the world’s largest consumer of coal and leading CO2 emitter, China’s role in the international effort to combat climate change can hardly be overstated. The challenges China faces to control emission and pollution levels while meeting the country’s increasing energy demand are enormous. Over the years, China has made considerable efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and control pollution levels, and notable progress has been made through the implementation of ambitious programmes aimed at improving energy efficiency across a number of industrial sectors and a rapid development of renewable energy. This study reviews China’s policy and regulatory initiatives, in particular those aimed at improving energy efficiency of and reducing emissions from coal power generation, HELE upgrade of coal power plants, as well as the progress to date in reaching a series of ambitious goals. China’s rapid expansion of non-fossil energy which affects the structural change of the power sector and coal use in electricity generation, and therefore, CO2 emissions from coal-fired power generation is discussed.

China has also provided strong financing and policy support for the R&D of HELE technologies. China now possesses a range of HELE technologies that are applicable to new coal-fired power plants and to retrofitting the existing ones. They are described in this report. Finally, peak coal consumption and CO2 emissions from power generation from coal, in light of China’s economic and policy trends affecting the structure of the economy and coal consumption, are assessed.
