Significant greenhouse gas emissions reductions may be achieved by the use of clean coal technologies which increase the net efficiency of coal-fired power stations, so that less carbon dioxide is emitted per unit of electricity generated. The net plant efficiency of coal-fired power generation in non-OECD countries is up to 10 percent lower than the 36 percent average in the OECD and even further below the 45 percent efficiency being reached with new supercritical PC and combined cycled technologies. Technology transfer is therefore the key to enabling non-OECD countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from power generation. The current use of coal-fired power generation in Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa and Latin America is examined...
