The World Coal Association (WCA) published a flagship report “The Case for Coal: India’s Energy Trilemma”. The report focuses on the challenges of meeting India’s growing energy needs, future energy demand, CO2 abatement costs and the role that can be played by high efficiency, low emission (HELE) coal technologies. Significant findings include:

The Indian government’s policies to meet the growing need for electricity are focused on developing large-scale coal-fired power plants.

India’s technology choice to meet future energy requirements has significant implications on CO2 emissions.

A $1 Billion expenditure in ultra-supercritical coal in India could abate more CO2 than the same expenditure in European renewables.

Coal is expected to remain the most cost-effective way to abate CO2 in India, accounting for declines in the capital cost of renewables and increased gas availability.
