AMERICAN COALITION FOR CLEAN COAL ELECTRICITY
2
What is ACCCE?
  • American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity
  • Non-profit, non-partisan
  • Companies involved in producing electricity from
    coal
  • Balance coals role in affordable, reliable
    electricity with environmental protection.
  • Development, deployment of advanced clean coal
    technologies to produce electricity with
    near-zero emissions.

3
Pennsylvanias Unique Perspective
  • Ranks 4th in coal production
  • 12 billion tons reserve
  • Coal generates 56 of electricity
  • Jobs for 16,000 people
  • Billion of in economic impact
  • Competitive, affordable electric rates
  • Electricity exporter
  • Geology technology positioned for CCS

4
CCS Clean Coal Technology
  • Since 1970, use of coal to generate electricity
    in the U.S. nearly tripled criteria pollutants
    other emissions regulated by federal Clean Air
    Act were cut by more than 90.
  • The coal-power generation industry already has
    invested 90 billion in cleaner coal
    technologies.

Clean Coal Technology around the U.S.
6
Pennsylvania CCS Potential
  • Shale coal seam sequestration
  • DCNR starting geologic evaluation
  • HB 80, SB 92 recognize CCS potential
  • Wm. J. Clinton Foundation aid
  • Federal stimulus climate change
  • University, private, public resources
  • Energy, jobs, economic benefits

Benefits 65 GW
  • 4.5 million job years and 240 billion in income
    during construction
  • 153,000 jobs during operations with 10 billion
    in labor income

10
ACCCEs Climate StrategyTimely adoption of
federal carbon management legislation
  • Technology investments
  • Preserve reliability
  • Protect consumers
  • Maintain US and PA competitiveness
  • Economy-wide program
  • Framework for CO2 safe storage
  • Deploy technology to other nations
  • Broad-based reduction approach
  • Credits for early reductions
