The Australian Coal Industry Consortium (ACIC), along with the Australian Government, is a participant in the IEA Clean Coal Centre. ACIC represent the interests of black and brown coal producers and generators. A revised consortium was formed in 2008 and includes members from industry, government and research organisations. The consortium chair is Dr Noel Simento, ANLEC R&D.
The Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) is currently comprised of 25 members, including 24 countries and the European Commission. CSLF member countries represent over 3.5 billion people, or approximately 60% of the world's population. The CSLF is a Ministerial-level international climate change initiative that is focused on the development of improved cost-effective technologies for the separation and capture and utilization of carbon dioxide for its transport and long-term safe storage. The mission of the CSLF is to facilitate the development and deployment of such technologies via collaborative efforts that address key technical, economic, and environmental obstacles.
Electric Power Planning & Engineering Institute (EPPEI) is a consulting organisation which mainly provides services to the government of China, financial institutions, electric power industry and other relevant enterprises. EPPEI undertakes studies related to the electric power industry, such as power planning, industrial policy and new technology R & D, electric power engineering reviews, evaluations, and the standardisation of China’s power engineering industry. EPPEI is entrusted by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) to evaluate electric power projects.
The Fossil Fuel Foundation of Africa is the premier world-class, knowledge-based institution serving the techno-intellectual needs of the multidisciplinary fossil fuel and energy community in Africa through communication, information distribution, coordination, education, promotion and networking.
The Global CCS Institute works collaboratively to build and share the expertise necessary to ensure that carbon capture and storage (CCS) can make a significant impact towards reducing the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an autonomous organisation which works to ensure reliable, affordable and clean energy for its 28 member countries and beyond. The IEA has evolved and expanded since its inception in 1974. It is at the heart of global dialogue on energy, providing authoritative and unbiased research, statistics, analysis and recommendations. Today, the IEA’s four main areas of focus are:
The IEAGHG studies and evaluates technologies that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions derived from the use of fossil fuels. The Programme aims to provide its members with definitive information on the role that technology can take in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The World Energy Council (WEC) is the principal impartial network of leaders and practitioners promoting an affordable, stable and environmentally sensitive energy system for the greatest benefit of all. WEC is the UN-accredited global energy body, representing the entire energy spectrum, with more than 3000 member organisations located in over 90 countries and drawn from governments, private and state corporations, academia, NGOs and energy-related stakeholders. WEC informs global, regional and national energy strategies by hosting high-level events, publishing authoritative studies, and working through its extensive member network to facilitate the world’s energy policy dialogue.
WEC released World Energy Scenarios: Composing energy futures to 2050. at its triennial event, the 2013 World Energy Congress, in Daegu, Korea. According to the report, the world is set to face several significant challenges in balancing global energy needs in addressing the energy trilemma over the next four decade.
