WCA calls for greater commitment on all low emission technologies ahead of COP21

The World Coal Association (WCA) today published its position statement for COP21 ahead of the start of meetings in Paris next week. The WCA strongly supports an effective agreement at COP21 that integrates environmental imperatives with the aims of energy security, economic development and an end to poverty.

The WCA COP21 position highlights that:

Without action to support deployment of low emission coal technology it will not be possible to achieve the 2 degree climate target.

The WCA supports a transition away from the least efficient technology in favour of high efficiency low emission (HELE) coal-fuelled power generation technology.

Global investment is required in carbon capture and storage (CCS).

If comprehensive policy and financial support is provided for CCS over the coming decade, including policy parity, it is realistic to believe that a transition toward no new unabated fossil fuels could begin in the late 2020s.
