American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity — ACCCE

The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) advocates public policies that advance environmental improvement, economic prosperity, and energy security. ACCCE believes that the robust utilization of coal is essential to providing affordable, reliable electricity for millions of U.S. consumers and a growing domestic economy and is committed to continued and enhanced U.S. leadership in developing and deploying new, advanced clean coal technologies that protect and improve the environment.

CCS Regulators Network

The international CCS Regulators Network was established in 2008 by the International Energy Agency in Paris in association with the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum and University College London’s Carbon Capture Legal Programme.  The CCS Regulators Network is building an information exchange platform for CCS legal and regulatory matters and may perhaps evolve into a government-to-government forum for policy coordination.
